"Tournay Triple is seductively strong … Triple beers traditionally contain more malt, and are therefore stronger. But the original idea behind Tournay Triple was to produce a very hopped beer rather than a strong one. When creating all our beers, we want to preserve a balance between the tastes and to ensure that each ingredient can be expressed without crushing the others. To respond to the bitterness of the hops, we therefore had to brew a solidly-built beer, whence the choice of a high alcohol content (more than 9% ABV). Although we had quickly succumbed to the very particular flavours of the New Zealand hop, Nelson Sauvin, many tests were necessary to find the right marriage with other hops, including the English Fuggles, and Cascade, which is the hallmark of all our beers except for Saison. The perfecting of our Triple was therefore a labour of Hercules but it was well worth the trouble!"

thedm (5799) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation hazy with floating yeast chunks dark yellow orange colored body and a poor lacing. The weak aroma was malt hop. The sharp semi-thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of vinous candy hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2016 Aus der Flasche im Bierzirkus in Brüssel getrunken. Trübes Amber im Glas mit einer geschätzten meterhohen Schaumkrone. Stabil! Wie soll man an das Bier kommen ? Das fruchtigste Triple, was ich je getrunken habe (Kalthopfung zahlt sich aus).

Hopverdju (723) - BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2016
Goudblond bier met wit schuim. Geur: redelijk gesloten neus maar toch wat grassige hop waarneembaar. smaak: bitter, lichtjes pompelmoes en wat moutzoetigheid die zorgt voor een goede balans. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Medium volmondig. Ik heb de indruk dat de Cascade hop er vroeger duidelijker uitkwam.

Pinball (11942) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2016
clear yellow orange, smooth offwhite head. quote nice typically belgian boozy aroma, but a little bit less wild yeasts and a little bit more bitter hops. judging from aroma this can go any way. in some sense also has notes typically seen in barley wine ( quote malt forward ). flavor is malty and boozy and caramelly. i think i have notes of wood but it is likely just something resembling wood. quite woody though. The hop composition is clear in the flavor, which is sort of half english half nelson sauvin. Very tasty in fact.

Rami Rami is drinking a Tournay Triple by Brasserie de Cazeau at Powiśle Bardzo intensywno kwiatowo-miodowy, troche przyprawowy. Slodki. Dwa problemy: niskie wysycenie i daje wrazenie sztucznosci

psilosophy (679) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - JAN 2, 2016
Bouteille de 33 cl. Couleur dorée, léger trouble, mousse abondante de belle tenue. Fruitée et épicée, des notes de champagne. Une belle rondeur et un palais intéressant à l attaque finement pétillante pour finir un peu collant. Trouvée à la brasserie Delneste - Froidmont.

kraddel (6381) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2015
Pours rather clear blonde, small white head. Smell is weak, bit yeasty. taste is sharp, mild sweetness, over a yeasty backbone. Only towards the aftertaste, the malts rise and bring some bitterness to it, as well as some hoparoma. rather soft mouthfeel, and good carbo. the beer starts out OK , but turns rather good towards the aftertaste. Likeable !
