22/V/15 - 50cl bottle @ Brazilian Tasting (home) - BB: n/a (2015-673) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, aery off-white head, unstable, falls down quickly, bit adhesive. Aroma: CO2, fruity, oxidized, almonds and marzipan, honey, bit soapy, alcohol. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: oxidized, bit metallic, little bitter, alcohol, bit of honey. Aftertaste: bitter touch, pretty oxidized, bit sweet, almonds, very yeasty. I think we can all learn from this: don’t age tripel beers in barrels. Seriously...

Stoned99 (504) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2015
500ml bottle shared with wife from William J.Walter. Aroma: Belgian yeast, apple, white grapes, vineous and woody. App: hazy golden, medium white head, nice lacing. Taste and palate: medium to full body, vineous texture, high carbonation, medium sweetness, light acidity and bitter and alcohol finish finish. Overall: this is quite good. Like the complexity of this one, how the chardonnay really adds some great texture and flavor to this original triple. This is my kind of beer.

500 ml. bottle sampled @ “Brazilian Tasting”. Thank you sebltetitje! At least 2 years old. Bottles states that you shouldn’t keep it longer than for one year, our bad. Orange, golden, little white head. Oxidation is big as far as smell goes, honey & almond oxidation notes, light varnish & paint booze,… Taste is muted, oxidized, honey, sweet, sugary & thin with light alcohol, caramel, sugar,… Bland,… Body is thinned out by aged. Ravaged by time, sadly, dull & too oxidized by this point. They did warn us.

Bouteille 50cl. No BB. Orangée trouble, col épais blanc. Arôme au bouquet d’abricot trop mûr sur un léger rétro de Chardonnay. Base maltée en retrait assez basique et montrant déjà des notes de vieille levure. Palais indique une bière passée malgré que cette dernière fût achetée à la fête de la St Jean du Délirium il y a deux ans. Retrouve un léger Chardonnay, note abricot, raisin blanc, malt pâle et cake, léger boisé, cloying, presque mielleux mais dont l’exécution reste un peu faiblarde. Correcte mais trop belge pour moi qui attendait plus de cette bière. Garde un profil dense, dont les 10% se ressentent avec un penchant certains pour un fruité fermenté prenant accentué par la mise en barrique. Le houblon reste sur une place modeste voire minime dans l’ajout d’un caractère houblonné à la bière.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with one finger of white head. Arom is sweet and tarty. Taste is similar and has a dry finish, but almost no bitterness. Well done.

CharlyBeer (118) - Bruxelles, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2015
Délicieuse! Vraiment un chèvre d’oeuvre! Légère mais au même temps bien alcoolisée, pas trop amère, belle couleur, belle mousse. Incroyable le coté barrique qui sort vers la fin, une petite pointe de vin. Ca me tarde de pouvoir la boire à nouveau!

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
500 ml bottle. Sticky white head covers the cloudy gold. Appealing vanilla touched oakiness complements yellow fruits - apples, apricot. The oak really adds an extra layer without stealing the show. Flawless mouthfeel, captivating carbonation throughout and round - yet dryish impression, filling the mouth while not feeling too rich similarly to the best pastries. Superb conditioning. Flowery, herbal, spicy finish with a last vanilla, almost buttery whisper. That’s a seriously good rendition, of a similar caliber to what Charlevoix would have pulled out.

veronneaupy (241) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - APR 11, 2015
Au nez, c'est boisé, acide avec des effluves d'alcool. En bouche, c'est sûr, astringent, boisé avec des belles bulles. La finale est semblable à une gorgée de vin avec son acidité et l'alcool encore présenté. Bien joué micro du lac! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Belle couleur jaune opaque avec un beau col blanc. Arome de miel,céréales,épices,agrumes,vin blanc. Acidité moyenne. Un peu décu mais meilleure que l’original.
