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.

3.44/5  rDev -11.1%

A- Pale hazy golden body with a huge, foamy white head. Some light comes through the body, but it is hazy enough for no visibility. Head is big and foamy and leaves a lot of lacing.

S- Bananas, nutty bread, somewhat of a plastic smell. Surprising dull for a tripel with little in the way of fruity esters.

T- Flavor has a little more punch to it than the nose would indicate. Still lots of banana flavors come through for me, with some hints of tree fruits and toasted grains. The yeast seems to give off some clove flavors as well.

M- Medium-full bodied, medium carbonation. Pretty full bodied, but good drinkability.

O- I think this fits into the Belgian strong pale ale category more than a tripel, as the flavors a very different. I'm excited to see what this beer can do as the base for future splinter beers. Oak and wild yeast would do wonders for this one, but the base beer is just okay.

3.63/5  rDev -6.2%

Appearance: 1/2 inch head, clear, straw yellow in color, high carbonation

Smell: apples and hay

Taste: honey, and Belgian spices, apples, and hay.

Mouthfeel: sweet with a funkiness, light bodied with high carbonation

Overall: An above average triple with nice apple and hay flavorings. Tasty, but I have had better in the style. Certainly worth a try, but I will reach for other favorites.
