COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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!"

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2013
cloudy light gold with pillowy white head. Banana and other tropical fruits on the nose. Palate is a little thin for the style, with a little too much effervescence. Beyond that, there are nice flavors of candied citrus fruit. Good, just not quite true to style. Hopefully not a bad bottle--might try this one again.

330ml bottle (Koht Birthday Auction, Tallinn)
Yeasty aroma, alcoholic too. Fairly dull tripel, sweetish malts, strangely it tastes of pens, and some slightly harsh hopping. Finish is vegetal. Really didn’t like the glass I got. Harsh, and rough.

mjs (4877) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2014
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE Feb 2016, courtesy of FatPhil, 20141122) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had black pepper, mustard and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, black pepper, mustard, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy, sweet and bitter. A weird but good strong Belgian ale.
