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”.

AndrewC (337) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle. Smells of damp grain. Looks cloudy. Tastes dry and of heavy alcohol with a yeasty blah-ness. Drying clammy palate. Can you pour this over Christmas puddings and light it? Would probably be the best use.

Bottled (thanks Samuli!). Hazy deep golden colour with a small, but long lasting white fluffy head. Leaves some lace. Aroma is fruits, sweet malty notes as well as mild bready and some spices. Flavour is very similar in a quite nice balance. Also mild alcohol shows. Nice tripel.

CapFlu (4653) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
(50cl copper ceramic bottle) Purchased at The Strath in Victoria, BC, for $9.90. Pours a clouded, deep amber body with lively carbonation and a thin, white, foamy, quick-dissipating head. Nose of lemon and highly yeastiness. Good malt front gets broken by the citrus body. Does a good job hiding the ABV. Very smooth, almost milky texture. Good.

Anker (723) - Hillerřd, 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 (1238) - 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.
