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.

probstblueribbon (3718) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2010
750 ml bottle from SAQ, served cold in a tulip glass. 26JL10.

App.: Very cloudy, deep dirty golden with yeast flecks. Aroma: Saison-ish funk, quite sharp, once that clears: doughy, yeasty, coriander, malt bread, tart fruitiness. Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence, a bit powdery (odd...). Flav.: More Tripel and less Saison than the noe, still some funk but more integrated with wheat, yeast, citrus, honey, fruitiness, biscuit; somewhat sweet with some tang and a touch of bitterness, a little alcohol to finish.

Kinda messy and unrefined.

The beer also contained normale carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear blond color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a spicy touch. This beer smells spicy.

boto (2102) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 17, 2010
50cl bottle from an Auchan: Caged and corked bottle. The cork came out easily, with only a muffled "pop". This one pours a slightly hazy, lighter golden color, There was quite the head of white foam on top. It leaves one lacing as it subsides. Somewhat lighter aroma for a triple, but what was there is nice. Bready, yeasty, clove, mild other spices and some apple are noted. Faint apples, as well as some other fruit notes in the taste. Some wheat and malt flavors. Slightly sweet, with no hops noticeable. Drinks easy. A nice beer.

Defreni (2997) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 24, 2010
Flaske: Flot klar pilsnergul øl med et stort skumhoved. Duft af blomster og gær. Smagen er en tand parfumeret men vokser langsomt på dig. En helt igennem solid og god trippel. Og bestemt det bedste franske jeg har set i et stykke tid.
