UPDATED: NOV 29, 2013 On tap at the Blind Tiger. Pours a hazed gold with a thin white head. Big pine, resinous and sweet. Toast, sweet malt and candy sugar. Big earthy hops. Long earthy toast and some warm alcohol (but very faint) on the finish.

On tap at Dieu du Ciel. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Huge citrus on the nose, big and bright. Medium bodied, then the alcohol shows up, big and heavy, but while warm and boozy this isn’t so big that it’s unbearable. Though I am glad I went with a smaller pour. Chewy with a load of citrus musk and warmth into the finish. Beautiful. Big though. But damned beautiful.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2012 Bouteille 341 ml. En fût chez DDC à St-Jérôme. 10.2%. Couleur ambrée, claire, mousse blanche. Arôme de résine, malt, un peu de fruit, mangue. En bouche, houblon Citra, citrus, malt, herbes, céréales et un peu d’alcool qui est très, très bien dissimulée. Finale très douce, un peu d’alcool qui réchauffe, légère amertume. Du bonbon. Triple IPA.

VT (1708) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours an orange golden with a persistent white head. Smells fruity and sweet. Tastes like oranges, yeast, sweet bread and tropical fruits. Good, very lemon- and citrus-flavored bitterness in the finish. A bit of acidity, and warm alcohol feel too. Medium-bodied. Excellent ale, loved it.

Passion fruit, citrus hops and a slight resin aroma open things up. Amber orange hazy liquid that add a nice head for the first 5 minute. Sweet, long palate with well presented hops. Perfect Belgian yeast American Pale Ale ! Wait, it’s a Belgian Tripel.... 10,2% ?? No way. Great beer, great idea, ugly label. A solid 4.1/5.

This was delicious - on cask at Toronto’s Cask Days festival. The hoppy aroma is inviting with citrus notes and then the yeasty and grassy notes hit from the triple and sweetness and bitter combine.

UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Cask Days 2013. Big bright nose and a lot of intense tropical fruit aroma. A bit chewy with some lovely sweet pale malt. A bit sweet bit the hoppiness does cut it. Lean pale malt and a nice spicy yeast Fresh and a bit fruity. Pretty lovely brew. Pale amber. Spicy/ fruity hop nose. A bit of sweet pepper and some earthiness. A little bit of fruit. Very bitter for the style. Soft spice. Peppery. Decent if unusual. A sort of lingering mintiness. I like it. 8 4 7 4 15

Really comes together well. Kind of going of the Houblon Chouffe idea but comes off original nonetheless. Pours cloudy orange with decent lacing and head. Citrus, orange-peel marmalade and tangy malt. Lively carbonation. Some bitterness, sweetness and sourness - great, full-bodied palate. Even some spice or lemon zest here. Tap at Barhop.

Bouteille 341ml. Couleur orangée limpide, mousse beige pâle. Arôme d’alcool, pamplemousse, houblon, litchi, ammoniac?, un brin herbal. Goût sucré tirant sur le sucre d’orge, bonne amertume, houblon floral, agrumes, contrairement au nez l’alcool est bien camouflé. Carbonation absente, corps moyen, crémeuse en bouche.

10/3/13 notes: bottle, blonde-orange, nice fluffy rocky head. Zippy aroma of lemon, white pepper, green grape. Flavor starts dry, tea, cereal, pith. Spreads mid-palate to tangerine, lychee, biscuit; dives to finish of more dry cereals, high-pitch citrus pith, bitter hops. Good aggressive Tripel, taut, hoppy, and contemplative. This grew on me, the end result quite impressive. 4.1.
