Notes/Commercial Description:
Inspired by nature's untamed beauty, LaGrave (pronounced \l?-gräv\) is the first of our 12.7-oz. corked and caged bottle releases. Bottle conditioned and highly carbonated, this Triple Golden Ale is steeped in the tradition of strong ales originally brewed in Belgium. The unique Belgian yeast forms the bedrock of LaGrave’s complex flavors. Strong and alluring at 8% ABV, LaGrave boasts a sweet, fruity flavor with a well-rounded mouthfeel and semi-dry, lingering bitter finish.

A - Pale yellow. Poured from corked and caged bottle into Duvel tulip glass. Wonderful white head, very similar to Duvel although not as thick. Great carbonation with good lacing clinging to glass.
S - Initially hit me with grassy/hay fragrance w/ the traditional candied Belgian yeast fragrance that you immediately recognize as typically Belgium.
T - Magnificent. I can taste the hops and is balanced nicely with the malts but the prevailing taste is the yeast. Overall very smooth, delicious and finishes superbly dry - the big ABV does not overwhelm this superb ale.
F - Big mouthfeel - warm yet rather refreshing w/ a bit of the bitter aftertaste lingering.
O - I think this is going to be my favorite Troegs offering. I hope I can obtain this great ale at one of my distributors. Troegs has a winner w/ this release. Bravo!!!

Its been a long time since I had a tripel, thought I'd give this one a try. 4 pack of corked & caged 12.7 oz. Bottles. Poured into tumbler.
A: hazy golden with a MASSIVE snow white head that lingers for quite some time. Excellent lacing.
S: slightly sweet malt & yeast. Hints of clove & spice almost like a Hefeweizen.
T: rich but balanced malt & some yeast, very "Belgium". Finishes DRY, very " un-Belgium". Interesting... The alcohol is WELL hidden, also a trait I've noticed with good Tripels.
M: well carbonated and lite, as the style should be.
O: this beer is awesome. Extremely drinkable despite the 8% abv. I will be picking this one up again!
