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.

fantti (629) - 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.

Appearance of a belgian blonde beer. The aroma and flavour is sickly sweet. A struggle to drink in quantity owing to its pudding drink nature.

maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2005
Bottled. A clear golden coloured beer with a small fast disappearing white head. The aroma is honey sweet with no expected spiciness. The taste is also way too swett for a tripel with floral honey tastes dominating. Not that bad a beer just really poor within its style. Drank my share of the 750 quite quickly as it wasn’t woth savouring.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 30, 2006
Quaffable would be the politest way of describing this one. Like the rest of the Ch’ti range this one is a little too thin and overly subtle to bare up against the big boys. Tasted from the ’nip’ bottle into it’s own bulbous chalice, quite cool. Poured a sunny gold, slightly hazy, very finely carbonated and showed good lacing but rather lacked in the head department producing no more than a film of white. Initial burst of sulphury yeast and feta cheese gave way to gentle (too gentle!) notes of toffee, breadcrumbs, soft melonous fruits and spicy alcohol. In the mouth it’s not overly big in body, in fact a little too thin for style, but it’s smooth and soft on the palate. Subtle in flavour; notes of sweet citric fruits, a dash of vanilla, bready yeast and an alarming presence of higher alcohols manage to race across the tongue with ease. Finish has pine nuts, oranges and vodka which I could best describe as ’HOT’. Remarkably, it comes off as fresh and quenching, kind of like a vodka & orange. I love my Tripels, so this one sits outside the circle by a long-shot. Unremarkable!!! (25cL, 08/09/06, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, citrus, and yeast. Flavor is weak, sweet, yeasty, nothing good, Thin body, not a brew.

JaKeAFC (451) - ITALY - JUN 8, 2012
75cl bottle, best before 03/2012. Orange colour, slightly hazed. Small wite head, looks creamy. Grainy on the nose. Aroma of apricot marmelade, yeast, syrup, some sweet malts, cork. Quite heavy and sharp in mouth thus being quite foamy. Was not expecting special stuff from France and this is it.

gunnar (4863) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 12, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours clear dark golden with a tiny white head. Aroma is mild, dried fruits, some belgian yeast. Filling and creamy mouthfeel.Taste is harsh grainy, alcohol and almonds.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2004
Golden orange colored beer with a fast disappearing head. Aroma of apple and straw with little spices and alcohol present. Sharp hay and straw flavor with some citrus. Somewhat cloying and not really my kind of beer!

Quetzalcoatl (153) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Thin disappearing head, crystal clear gold body. Faint malt aroma. The flavor reminds me of champagne at first, but just ends up tasting acidic and cidery. Light bodied. Clearly I got a mislabeled bottle. No familiar characteristics of a triple; murky body, bottle conditioning, heavy complex aroma, yeasty flavors, rich palate. But casting style aside, this is still barely enjoyable. For a buck more I could have had a Chimay.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2005
Bottled. Aroma of sweet malts. Bit boring aroma because there’s nothing else there. Golden color, white head, good lace. Very sweet malty beer with a light fruitiness, little sticky. Nothing wrong but a bit boring. Gave me a feeling of a nice beer that’s overcooked (if that was possible). Maybe adding a bit refreshing hops would do it good.
