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.

Excellent head, hazy and sedimenty look to it. Bread flavor, hints of banana, slightly bitter finish.

Poured a golden copper color with a one finger head in in Orval Trappist glass.

Interesting aroma: different then other classic Tripel – special spices, lemon emphasis.

Very spicy MF. Almost like a Saison.

Distinctive taste: fruit, space, different than other approaches to the style.

Excellent tripel. It's not classic, which makes it enjoyable and quite interesting to drink. Definitely an American Tripel.

Nice hazy orange tinged brew. Suspended stuff in here. Really nice scent with the yeast and spice. Well carbonated slightly fruit and Belgian in flavor. More gentle that I would have though but pretty darn good. Tons of carbonation and medium/thin. Really good.

Ok, there might not be anything outstanding with this beer, but does life have to be outstaning to be good? This is a
fantastic beer that poured from a 12.7oz bottle, served at around 50 degrees into a crystal chalice. It poured a beautiful golden yellow, with a 1/4" head and some lacing. Aroma reminded me of pear and light cantelope and the mouthfeel was awesome. The first reaffirmed the pear and the second to me reminded me of a very nice two row malt and it finished dry, maybe champagne yeast. If you're looking for a great drinking Belgian for the 90 degree heat, this would be a good pic. Sip, don't slurp, haha.... Really good beer from Troeg's
