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!"

Pinball (11809) - 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 (641) - 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 (5725) - 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 !

Bozo_skeleton (908) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 20, 2015
Blonde paille, très peu de carbo, collet très fin. Aromes légèrement fruité, levuré. Des l’attaque l’amertume se fait sentir et tient longtemps.

erickok (5035) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2015
Malty, alcohol, spices, banana bread. Sharp spicy taste. Different than the hopped classics I know and adore, but interesting enough and well made too. (Bottle at Berthom Tours)

Nicolas_M (170) - BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2015
The aroma was clearly about hop (I hadn’t see the little IPA tag on the bottle), so good start. The taste is a mix of triple, for the main body, and hoppy beer for the bitterness as the aftertaste. Great beer, but can be hard to finish a big bottle. 9 degree of alcohol, you don’t taste it, but it still can hit hard.

Ulysse (401) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2015
Fresh hoppy aroma. Head sticks to the glass. Well balanced bitterness on the soft end but still rather present in the mouth.

Kindly shared by Jaghana. Couleur orangée trouble, très légère mousse. Nez levuré avec citron/orange genre saison. Gout fruité jaune sucré avec agrumes puis bonne amertume en fin de bouche. Corps onctueux. Fin fruits sucrés et amertume. Pas mal
