Why is the Grim Reaper holding a mailbox? Well, that mailbox is from a dead Dark Horse beer. The Grim Reaper better known as "Death" was quite fond of our classic Sapient Summer Wheat Ale. When we changed it into a Belgian-Style Triple, Death thought it would only be appropriate to bring something from that beer into this beer. So, he picked the mailbox, and we weren’t about to argue with him. You can say what you want about him, but that Death sure has a big heart.
So anyway...we brewed this beer with a traditional Trappist yeast strain. The flavors are complex with sweet notes of fruits and a nice finish with a bit of clove. Although this beer is higher in alcohol it is very smooth, and finishes dry on the pallet.
