COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
La CH’TI Triple est une bière blonde puissante, aux arômes riches et authentiques. Ses qualités ont été récompensées par la médaille d’Or lors de la Sélection Mondiale de la bière en 2004 à Bruxelles et par la médaille d’Argent lors du Concours Général Agricole de Paris en 2004. Afin de profiter de toute sa saveur, nous vous conseillons de la tenir au frais et de la déguster à une température de +/- 8 °C dans son verre préalablement rincé et non essuyé.

DruncanVeasey (7309) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2008
Pours bright gold with a fine mist of sediment and collapsing white head. The fruitiest aroma of the beers in my wooden carrefour Ch’ti selection crate. Suggestions of apple and pear, but it’s mostly grain. Mouth smooth and slightly whiskeyish, with chewy grain, cardboard, antiseptic smoky malt, pale biscuit and aspirin. Increasingly irritating in it’s whiskey-dipped paperiness. Watery, stale, alcoholic and not to this rater’s taste. Coors Light with a wee dram tipped in it.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Bottle. Musty and yeasty aroma complete with apples and pears. Sparkling gold color. Very drinkable Trippel. I am fond of their beers so maybe that is just me. The alcohol is concealed in the at first yeast dominated flavor, that becomes fruity and somewhat dry afterwards.

Quack-Duck (8018) - Down South, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2007
bottle. Golden colour, creamy head. Aroma and flavour reminds me of German Bockbier. Malty, sweet, slightly fruity and hoppy.

oberabcbbsok (687) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2007
Hos tripple is also not to good. Had it on bottle. Just a very average beer. Not really worth while drinking

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2007
Pours a medium yellow hue with a thin, foamy, white head that disintegrates quickly. The aroma smacks of alcohol, stewed grains, oatmeal, honey and overripe peaches. The flavour is more of the same, though with decidedly less power. Very flimsy sweetness at first with a dull acidity, washing into a dirty, grainy and alcohol laden finish. Aftertaste is long and drying with an alum powder feel to it. Watery, medium body still manages to leave behind an unclean film in the mouth, not to be brushed away by the penetrating carbonation. Dirty and alcoholic, say no more. 33cl bottle, Leffe goblet, bbe 01/06/08.

thomat (2125) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 18, 2007
Pale yellow with a tiny white foam. Sweet and malty with some carbonation. Medium body with a short, sweet aftertaste.

Egon (478) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2007
Part of a bottle. Clear golden with a low head. Low key with not much in aroma or taste. Short after taste.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2007
Bottled. Clear golden colour. Low head. Chlorin aroma with glue and pretty sticky feel overall. Glue dominates the flavour, which is very one-dimensional. Pretty short taste with no depth. Sticky swimmingpool beer.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2007
Pale yellow/gold with medium sized head. Not much carbonation. Sweet & floral aroma, lots of sugar and honey. Taste was dominated by the honey. Crude: way too sweet with nothing to counterbalance it. Light mouthfeel, very thin but a bit cloying from the sweetness.

cathcacr (636) - Oregon, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Eeegh!! Forget all my sem-technical bluster. Three words: Lingering. Soapy. Aftertaste.

Technical bluster:
$4.99 for a 25’er of Triple, I’m thinking "gee, that’ll be money well-spent. Gee, that was money well-spent. Nice to see that it wasn’t just me or this bottle (it was slightly chilled, served up in a snobbish snifter or bulbous tulip or whatever the hell you call it); again, the RateBeer community comes through with flying colors! Flavor is a bit notable for at least being metallic. Appearance would be good on other beers, but hardly minimally adequate for a "Tripel".

Very average.
