Brewer description : A triple fermented golden premium beer, brewed from a unique process using two different yeasts and an old regional secret. This “Bičre 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”.

RexTalionis (3479) - FINLAND - JAN 15, 2013
Bottled. Clear pale golden in color with frothy whitish head. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Fruits, spices and even some sour notes in aroma. Smooth to drink. Spices again, some fruits and belgian yeast in taste. Pleasant.

Rewelacyjne francuskie piwo, w którym nie czuć alkocholu. A jest mocno rozgrzewające w końcówce, treściwe i bogato słodowe w smak, mętne śliczna piana i piękne opakowanie. Butelka kamionkowa i korkowana. Zdobywca nagrody w paryżu w 2008r. Polecam tego tripla.

CharlieNoodles (80) - Toulouse, FRANCE - NOV 7, 2012
Cloudy amber/orange colornwith hardly any collar. Sweet warm fruity smell. Taste is much stronger compared to its looks and its soft and warm smell. Penetrating citrus with flavours of licorice

AshtonMcCobb (5043) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2012
50cl bottle. Pours golden with a lovely lacy head. The nose has custard, gorse maybe with a yeasty background. The taste is confected fruit salade with a sweet cranberry note on the finish. The palate is medium bodied and textured with a long tangy finish. Overall, really interesting beer.

stravale (2723) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - OCT 30, 2012
Bottle at Craig’s 271012
Light golden, soft haze, thin white head
Aroma of soft belgian yeast, candy sugars, soft aromatic herbal
Taste of soft belgian fruity yeast esters, hint of banana, candy sugar, fair amount of alcohol though, not well hidden
Palate - medium carb, bit oily. Finish as main flavour, some warming alcohol
Overall - OK not the best tripel I’ve had

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2012
In bottle thanks Craig. Pours a blonde colour with a fair white head. Aroma of lemon, candy sugar, caramel and white pepper. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Alcohol is well balanced. Not bad.

Nice bottle. Hazy blond colour, white head. Funky saisonish aroma. Taste is a bit sour, some fruit (grapefruit?), barnyard, "zuurtjes".
