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.

Pouring a cellar temp bottle into a snifter. the beer pours a bright gold color with some suspended sediment and a thin bleached white head of .5 cm that fades to a sturdy edge layer and some wispy islands.
Aroma is white grapes and bready yeast and scones, I also get a little light booze and a small amount of general funk.
First sip reveals average body with very fine and very tingly carbonation. This carbonation enhances the texture on each sip and makes it even more enjoyable for the sampling.
Flavor is white grape and sweet malt with a little musty funk. Very dry finish.
The beer is a sweet one but gives no hint of alcohol on the flavor profile. I am enjoying this bottle and Im glad I have a few more.

Nice job Troegs!

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Slightly hazy dull yellow in color. Forms a very large, very stable off-white head. Excellent retention and lacing.

S: Aroma is pleasant, though I am pulling a lot of carbonation. Lots of yeasty esters. A little band-aid in the mix. Some lighter grassy or herbal hops.

T: The taste is likewise pleasant. Slight sweetness, with notes of pale malts, rock candy, yeast, bread, green apple, and some mild esters.

M: Medium bodied. Moderately high carbonation. Mild bitterness.

O: A nice beer and an accurate representation of the style. One of the better Troegs beers I've come across in some time.
