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.

rickgordon (3841) - 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.

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.

vanvenlo (1152) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 24, 2007
29 June 2006 - Very light fruit and light spice aroma. Light amber colour, reasonable head and suds lacing. Nice light fruit and light spice hop flavour. Nice mouthfeel and finishes with hop spiceness.

Lunkie (1363) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 19, 2007
Smokey hop malt aroma. Slight cloudy amber colour with good head and lacing. Bitter spice smoke malt flavour. Fizzy palate.

nigos (630) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2007
Golden lager like appearance with a decent white head. Fresh orangey and floral nose. Clean crisp yeasty flavour with a slightly sweet body. Not overly complex, in fact a little thin. Not the finest offering from this brewer.

omhper (18944) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2006
[Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm] Pale golden, fairly lively. Almondy yeast aroma dominates the nose. Medium sweet withclean but firm mouthfeel and medium body. Vague estery notes of raspberries, but although pretty good, as a whole it’s like a Bière de Garde light, less extrovert and with less appealing malt character than the top examples of the style.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2006
From a 750 ml. brown bottle with what I am guessing is a bottling date since I know this was a new bottle, given to me by a liquor store manager/friend who wanted my opinion on a Belgian he just added. Sampled at a cellar temperature in a chalice. Poured a cloudy golden hued orange with a foamy white head that settled into a thin lacing, the most minimal amount of sticking, pretty standard appearance. Aromas of sulfur, grapes and apples, light sugar spices and whiffs of a fusel alcohol. Light, fizzy carbonation and a softly crisp, too soft for me, smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel. For a tripel, I thought this was bland tasting overall, sulfur and bready, sugary pale malts, sour apple and green melon fruity, a very soft spicy hoppiness, the fusel alcohol flavor starts to show up just past the middle, and a dry yeasty and sweet malty finish, pretty much average drinkability for the tripel, nothing real stands out flavor wise from this ale. This tripel sells for $10.99 at bottle in my area, so I’m glad this was a freebie.
