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.

My favortie non-belgian tripel. Great candied fruit aroma and taste; well balanced. Not a charicature of belgian tripels, rather a very well done interpretation.

Pours a clear light golden with a medium white head that leaves sticky lacing. Nose is of peppery alcohol, flowery alcohol and alcohol. Good phenols, never overwhelming. Taste is moderately sweet and peppery. Peppery fruits. Alcohol is present but never too hot. Body is light to medium and carbonation medium-medium-high (a touch too high if you ask me). Mouthfeel is airy at least. Overall a nice classic from Quebec, forgotten in those "new beer everyday" days but still really imposing.

I’m fairly new to craft beers, but this one will have me going back to the store for more. Reading the other ratings, this brewer has many fine brews that are worth trying. Yeasty aroma at first but it opens up to a malty bready nose. Massive rocky, white head that lasts with excellent lacing. Bottle conditioned light amber color . Incredibly fizzy. Yeasty sweet bitter taste. Dry, sharp and clean taste. Many other raters claim it’s more of a German Hefeweizen than a Belgian Triple. I need more experience. Great sipping beer! Cheers.

The experience starts with the 500ml custom bottle and its distinctive artwork that I think is pretty cool and stands out on the shelves. At first glance, you have a foggy golden robe showing tons of fine bubbles topped by an eggshell head that I found very airy. The head slowly shifts to a thin layer and offers a minimal rough lacing. The nose is aromatic and spicy with notes of fresh cilantro and grainy malt presence. You’ll also get a sweaty or soapy undertone from the yeasts that I personally found less interesting. The attack is a bit sweet but quickly shifts to bready malts, again with the soapy undertone of the yeasts and a hoppy finale delivering a slight aftertaste. A pleasant warmth and sting from the alcohol gives a nice density and roundness. Kind of surprised the alcohol was so apparent, since only standing at 9% ABV. The mouthfeel is also sharp and dry, contributing to the complexity of the product. Overall this is a good full-bodied, robust triple I found interesting and a beer you could shelf for up to 3 years to make it develop complexity.

Bouteille 500ml. Blonde paille, mousse blanche avec dentelle. Arôme d’alcool, levure. Goût, pain, levure, alcool. Palais modérée. Arrière gout faible, sucré. C’est bon, c’est rafraichissant. Un produit remarquable.

Idiosynkrasie (4254) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2014
500ml bottle [little gusher]. Hazy golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Yeasty aroma, notes of apple purée and oat flakes, some yeast spiciness, hints of apple, apricot, mirabelle and peach. Taste is yeasty, minimally spicy, fruity notes of apple, apricot, mirabelle and peach, a minimally sweet touch of oat flakes. Very clean, without edges - and therefore almost a bit boring.

OOKPIKABLE (132) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
Pours amber. Aroma of yeast and champagne. Tastes of the same. Lingering aftertaste.
