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.

Not much to say about this beer. This is a pretty mediocre tripel that lacks any great flavour or character even considering its alcohol hit. Disappointing.

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.

Part of a bottle. Clear golden with a low head. Low key with not much in aroma or taste. Short after taste.

Kosmokrator (424) - ITALY - APR 15, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2012 Bel colore arancione con media schiuma bianca. Aroma di lieviti, bucce d’arancia e fiori; sapore medio-dolce con note maltose e fruttate. Al palato è morbida e sufficientemente corposa ma il finale è veramente "breve" con un fastidioso retrogusto amarognolo un po’ appiccicoso.

Benzai (6388) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 9, 2012
Draught @ Becoloth, Boxtel. Clear orange-copper color, medium sized white head that disappears fairly quickly. Don’t smell much, but it’s crowded and a lot of people are smoking, so perhaps that’s why. Taste malts, some fruits, a bit fruitpeel, lightly earth. Medium body, ok carbonation.

Thank you to jaghana for the bottle. Clear amber coloured beer with small white head and no carbonation. Herby vegetable aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is bitter herby dry sweet hinted.

kingstoni (1334) - FINLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden color with a thick foamy white head. Aroma of grain and malt. Sweet malty taste with some bitterness in finish. Medium thin body. This is not a Belgian style Tripel as it’s currently categorized.

fantti (628) - FINLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Pours golden and clear with 2 finger foam. Aroma is very, very mild. It has hints of buttery citrus, berries and also alcohol, unfortunately. Taste has citrus and plenty of spicy yeastiness, but hint of alcohol is present also. Quite dull taste. Palate is medium, little alcoholic and medium carbonation is also present. Quite dull tripel with hints of alcohol in aroma and taste. Not very convincing.
