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.

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".

Bottle @ home. Aroma has some grapes and faint malt. Flavour is carbonaaaatiooon. Then some dry malt and faint fruits. Meh, way too much carb, better halfway.

pours golden orange with a nice thick foamy head, creamy CO2, lots of active CO2 streams. Sweet malts on the nose. Starts off with a burst of sharp honey sweetness (9/10), floral malts, chamomile, toffee, lemon citrus, mildly hoppy, finishes medium sticky sweet and a very mild bitter malty finish. Medium complexity, med depth, good transitions, good carry, great drinkability. An above average, solid triple. The sweetness gets heavy and weighs on you halfway through.

Bottlled 500ml, clay finish with cork & cage from Carrefour, Coquelles, France. The second I loosened the cage, the cork shot out and foam spread across my wife’s new tablecloth, be careful out there. Gold with humongous white head. Aroma of vanilla essence and fruit bowl, this leads to rather a disappointing flavour, again vanilla, but candy sugar and rice wine seem to come to mind. Plenty of fruity alcohol notes perhaps. A sort of interesting combination, but certainly could have been better.

Bottle, 75cl corked. A huge, off-white head forms over an almost clear, golden body. Nice lacings left. The aroma is nice but a bit dull. Fruity, lightly malty and bitter with a touch of spices. The same goes for the flavor, it’s not bad in any way, but it could use a bit more punch. Both bittermess, fruityness and spices are low, and I think it’s a bit sweet. Full-bodied, nicely carbonated. Well, sure drinkable. 120107
