COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by belgium monks heritage. Brewed using yeast that keeps working in bottle. We recommend waiting a good month after the first batch is bottled (august 2003) before tasting it. Keep in a dark and cool place and use a tulip glass.

Arch (11) - Gatineau, Quebec, - AUG 5, 2010
Aroma : Spices. Maybe a little bread and as expected, a good dose of Belgian yeast. Slightly fruity. Appearance : Clear golden with loads of white foam that lasts most of the glass. Taste : Great malt presence. Quite yeasty with little fruity esthers and a slightly bitter finish. Herbal hops. Quite spicy brew.Alcohol is very well hidden. Mouthfeel : Just thick enough and well carbonated. Overall : Well balanced. A great, spicy Tripel. I didn’t expect less from Charlevoix.

D’une couleur blonde ambrée, elle dégage une bonne effervescence. Au pif l’arôme est floral, malté & sucré. Son goût est bien malté, légerement épicé, subtilement sucré. Rafraîchissante. ;)

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle from Darby’s Liquor Store, Vancouver, bottled 2013-06-04
Hazy deep blond color, with fine perlage, generous and persistent compact head. The aroma has the elegance and spicy depth of true Belgian ales, with nuances of malt, rosemary, sage, heather honey, alcohol, phenol; fresh fruity and floral impression too. The mouthfeel is lean, yet with moderate sweetness; good malt flavor, with elegant spice profile, coriander and cloves; very smooth, with low but correct level of bitterness and a light herbal touch in the end; very good work with the yeast.
Excellent beer, to drink slowly in order to appreciate the details.

MrHangover (2452) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2014
Bottle @ tasting, shared by DutchDrebus. Pours a light hazy golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is very yeasty and Belgianny, some booze detected. Flavor is very sweet and light alcoholic, touch of banana and other subtle fruits. Light carbonation, decent Belgian clone.

Benzai (7315) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2014
Bottle shared by Dutchdrebus when he came by to wave me and MrHangover goodbye (we were going on holiday) with tears in his eyes and wood in his pants -so he said himself-. Gusher! Hazy a bit pale yellow color, medium sized white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is orangepeel, lightly malts and yeasty. Taste yeast, orangepeel, lightly malts. You know what, this is a real Belgian Beer clone, that’s for sure. But is this really a typical Belgian tripel? Imo it’s not. Not a bad beer, but I’m not convinced. To me it’s a Belgian tripel clone mixed with a German Hefeweizen. Nevertheless, if you drink this solely because you want to drink a decent beer, no remarks at all.

Frothmeister (546) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale gold with a three finger foamy white head. Aromas of yeast, lemon, peppercorn, and big mineral notes. Mildly sweet with mineral water notes, light dried apricot, a light alcohol burn, light lemon candy, black pepper and spice (clove, mild cinnamon) in the finish. Man, this brewery appears to make nothing but fantastic beer.

Light yellow body with lemon foam head very carbonated. Sweet with a nice bitterness that's unique for a triple. Verdant and brothy.
