COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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”.

Best by 31DEC12 Cool bottle, great marketing. Pours a light apricot ale with a thick quilt of fine creamy foam. Smells of funky hay, a bit of grassy hops, some mint and pine, a sweet yeast and hint of coriander. A nice grainy, corny thick pilsner like triple ale. This is an atypical beer and I like it’ nice and earthy with good character. Medium on thick body with tight assertive carb and an off dry finish. Nice beer. Serving type: bottle 10-03-2012

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Hazy yellow color, good white head, lots of lace. A bit tart-citrus fruity aroma, yeast. Medium-bodied. Fruity (apricot, watermelon) with tartish twist. Light alcohol and quick finish.

Crit (3306) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2013
Looks great,and has a decent tart spicy alcoholic nose, but it ends there. Any flavor profile is overpowered by an intense metallic off flavor. I would avoid this one until they get a fresh shipment

ChrisSc (184) - Lille, FRANCE - OCT 14, 2013
33cl bottle in tulip. Iille France Appearance: copper/orange hazy liquid body. Rich cloud like head with plenty of lacing. Aroma: yeast, orange, alcohol, grains Taste: sweet and then bitterness. Not necessarily balanced. Palate: lively carbonation gives a very full mouthfeel. Somewhat oily finish. Overall: a pretty decent triple, but far too bitter for me. The finish isn’t necessarily a hoppy bitter, which makes It less appealing in my opinion. Not very balanced. Would have liked like bitter and more sweet. Still a good beer and worth a try. The appearance and aroma re really pretty nice. Pretty good for French beer.

Silvan7 (633) - Samarate, ITALY - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle @ home. tripel senza molta personalità. Il profumo è flebbile di malto e lievito belga, con un fruttato che ricorda le pesche sciroppate e un alcolico che ricorda i vini passiti. Ambrata dalla schiuma abbondante e persistente. Poco carbonata, fin troppo corposa per lo stile. Gusto speziato, di frutta candita e di nuovo vinoso. finale anonimo.

Post-tasting bottle sample at Beer & Beyond. Thanks troubles. Cloudy orange, alcoholic and honey in the nose, very sweet and alcoholic in the mouth. Flat, full body, sweet finish. Quite nasty.
