Brewer description : A triple fermented golden premium beer, brewed from a unique process using two different yeasts and an old regional secret. This “Bière de Garde” is refermented in bottle and has rich, copious and persistent foam. With it slightly cloudy aspect, Vivat Triple is of a great aromatic complexity. It delivers very good hope bitterness at the finish. It has been rewarded in 2008, by the most prestigious award for food and drinks’ quality in France: Golden medal at the “Concours agricole de Paris”.

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2011
Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet malt, fruit, caramel and lime. The flavour is spicy with notes of sweet malt, corn and alcohol. Had a warm sample, which it probably didn’t benefit of.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2011
500ml ceramic bottle from 16th St. Liquor in West Vancouver. Pours a medium gold with high carbonation and thick, pillowy off-white head that lingers before finally reducing to two fingers. Aroma is yeasty, slightly sharp in hops, somewhat dusty...might be suppressed by the thick foam on top. Taste is certainly Belgian is style, funky, yeast predominant with a firm hop bite in the finish. The beer tastes slightly young, a tad too effervescent but still pleasing. Aging might really compliment it well. Finish lingers well with hops remaining on the tongue as well as some yeast. Pretty good.

jmm1 (132) - Andorra la Vella, ANDORRA - DEC 11, 2010
From 50cl ceramic bottle. Golden cloudy body with lots of sparkling, white foam and rocky head that lasts and leaves a good white lacing. Bread, dough, licorice, raisin, grassy aromas with some hints of banana. Light sweetness, medium bitterness, more aromas develop in mouth like resin and plum. Medium body, creamy, lively, long sweet finish with a dry alcoholic aftertaste. Nice french tripel which gets close to its belgian counterparts though more yeasty, but still lacks some complexity and maturity. Would like to try it after some time in a cave and filtered.
