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.

Nice gold colour, good layer of foam on top, carbonation is good. Smells of alcohol, metallics, grassy notes, slight malt hints. Taste is heavy on the syrup and alcohol, overpowering actually and not very interesting. Slight honey in there. Bitter finish. Disappointing.

Bottle at Emil’s knidly given to us at the Biere Mondiale, Strasbourg 2009. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Sweet with aromas of caramel. Slightly spicy with hints of diacetyl. Tiny peppary hints. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. Boring.

To celebrate my S4aD on RB while being in Bordeaux...A French Tripel (listed as biere de garde....). 25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a huge, slowly collapsing white head. Aroma is cornish and malty, light sweet note. Sweet caramelish flavoured, light bitterness and vague spice note. Lingering sweet caramelish finish, vague metallic note. Sweet little triple, I don’t get why this is listed as Bière de Garde.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 They call this a "triple" but customers should beware: this isn’t in any form a Belgian-style "abbey tripel", but an overtly sweet take on a bière de garde; aroma is not that inviting, with alcohol and sweetness all over the place. A pity, because the look of the glass is very nice: an orange beer with big, foamy head and some perlage going on. Taste is very sweet and unrefined, with some annoying sharp notes; I’d not call it very dry, because in the finish all the sweetness comes out and sticks in your mouth even if the beer has gone away. This is my first review fully in English and I’d like to say "hello" to all raters and site viewers who never understood a word of what I wrote, assuring them it was better back then. Anyway I’m not sure I’ll write in English further, it was just because I’m reading an article on Archilochus written in English and writing an English review for Lou Reed’s "The Bells" so the language literally took my hand.

Big bottle from Auchan. Golden beer with nice white mousse. Aroma is malty, sweet with some flowers and soft hop. Taste is sweet with some banana, malty with honey hints and slight hoppy.

imdownthepub (11282) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2009
Bottled, 750ml cork & cage, aged 4.5yrs. Gold with white head. This had aged well, still good condition with a light fruity aroma. The body had a deep fruity flavour, peachy and tangy, maybe a sharp apple note. Lacks a dryness, but really pretty decent and reasonably smooth with the aging.

MiP (14433) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 21, 2009
Bottle, 7.5%. Clear dark golden colour. The flavour is nicely malty, slightly sweet, quite peppery. Has a little vegetable, but seems clean. Good peppery aftertaste with a rough, cleansing bitterness.

KyotoLefty (7430) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 1, 2009
Had this in Paris, 2006. Notes from then. Have they changed the beer? Medium golden color, average head. Very fruity, somewhat sweet aroma. An amazingly fruity flavor, apple, citrus with a touch of honey, grapes, not very sweet really, with good hop bitterness. A long lasting hop finish too. Very original tasting.
