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.

Poured from a brown 12.7 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1 inch head and some floaties in the glass. Smell is of yeast, some spices. Taste is spices, fruits, alcohol is present, good, but less flavorful then expected for the style. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Poured from a corked and caged 375ml bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.

Appearance is a medium to dark golden color that is slightly hazy. Head is abundant on a fairly conservative pour that is a white as day. Head recedes rather quickly.

Smell is yeasty with clove and huge fruit smells. Some candy sweetness and slight musty notes with some straw and hay.

Taste starts off with huge fruit flavors of pear, apple, banana and peach mixed with some hay and grassy notes with a huge amount of yeast and clove. Candy sweetness really takes over mid palate but gets squashed on the finish with the bitter earthy and pine hops. Finish is bone dry. Really nice beer.

Mouthfeel is medium and coating, a bit prickly and sticky with very little alcohol poking through. Carbonation drinks very nicely.

Overall this is a terrific American take on a tripel that ends dry with hops rather than sweet like a traditional Belgian tripel. I really liked this beer and will buy it again.

PS: Loved the small corked and caged bottles.
