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.

Lore (2098) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 21, 2016
opalescent pale yellow colour, large white head; aroma of bread, apricot, intensive Belgian yeast, cheesy notes, maybe some citruses and floral notes, too; taste is the same with the dominance of yeast and fruitiness; extraordinary tripel!

Adamsville (199) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
Certaines belges sont plus axées sur l’aspect phénolique, d’autres sur celui fruité. Ici, on a droit à une Triple où la levure belge joue un beau rôle sur les deux plans: les épices et les arômes d’agrumes, voire de poire sont bien équilibrés. Effervescence plutôt élevée.

rand (1490) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2016
Bouteille 500 ml de la Cave à Bières - Yverdon (CH). Blonde à légers reflets verts sous une mousse dense et pure, très effervescente et dentelles au verre. Nez d’alcool, fruité citron-abricot, épices et caramel, relent houblonné. Le goût est doux, fruité et alcooleux, avec une acidité idoine, sucré-caramel avec un amer d’amande, des notes de levure. Bière chaleureuse et gourmande. Etiquette buvard délavée.

Bosskie (726) - NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2016
Slightly opaque hay-coloured beer with a foamy white head. Nice bubbliness. Smell is classic Belgian: sweet grainy grassy with a subtle bitterness. Touch of whie pepper, coriander, hint of peaches. Bit of malty sourness. Taste is sweet watery bitter with a hint typical French sourness. Smooth and silky with a watery creamy finish. Minerals, slight hint of vanilla.

ljthiessen (1079) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 22, 2016

Acid303 (668) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - FEB 21, 2016
50cl bottle, served in Trappist glass. Pours golden with medium white head. Aroma is banana, caramel, yeast and fruits. Taste is the same but the banana flavour really dominates. The yeast plays an important role here. It’s very balanced, smooth, easy drinkable and the alcohol barely appears. Medium body, perfect carbonation. Excellent Tripel.

Bierdimpfe (208) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2016
Bright hazy straw color, almost golden. Thick extra foamy 5 finger head lasting for more than 15 minutes and creating a high foam island eatable with a spoon. Strong legs and extra powerful but delicate activity. Aromas and flavors of fruits, citrus, honey or caramel, herbal and floral spices. Well intensified flavors of rich and pleasant sweet apple and lemony taste with some faint bitter spices making it quite accessible. Slick medium body with champagne like carbonation. Perfectly balanced finish ending with a slightly spicy and smoky bitter orange/clove like feel. Overall : A strong craft; Delicious flavors, well balanced in all aspects, highly refreshing, perfectly spiced, but slightly too vinous.
