JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2014
Very pale straw coloured pour. A light haziness. The nose is quite spicy - herbal honeyed character along with a touch of light grassiness. There is a little bit of soft earthiness as well as a touch of fruit. There is a fairly fresh grassy character but the beer lacks a real integration. Slightly vegetal.

JorisPPattyn (7808) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2013
Huge dense yellowish, rather stable over fully hazy yellow-ochre beer; shards of lace and solid yeast on the bottlebottom. Dry spicy malts, "smelling" very attenuated. Rootspices, very faint spike of acetic. Very spicy-yeasty flavour, molded bread, citruszeste. Some spiced syrup (there are still sugars traceable in the mouth°. Finish is a bit drier. At least medium bodied - not so attenuated after all. Well-carbonated , not fizzy. Spiciness keeps hanging around. Tripels - sorry, Belgian strong blondes - definitely aren’t the forte for the northern American brewers.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2014 My Bottom Line:
This elegant Tripel’s lightly honeyed malts, doughy yeast, pear esters and subtle herbal hops intertwine in a fluffy, very approachable mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A generous head of foam sits atop the misty golden.
-Alcohol blends into the flavor profile quite well.
-Citrusy spiciness (ginger, citrusy thyme, etc.) is found throughout.
-This isn’t a complex Tripel, but it is balanced and very drinkable.
-Malts and yeast combine to offer bready allusions at times.

Superb Belgian lace tops the hazy, champaigny body. I’m almost surprised at the fact that, considering the brewery, you can almost see through this gold. Carbonation stays active all throughout the tasting. Fresh bready pale malts are greeted by a considerable dose of estery yeastiness with strong pear connotations and lighter tropical fruit notes, not quite green, but certainly not very ripe. Bananas, pineapple all come across in a fairly sweet ensemble where the malts develop cakey hints. It grows more perfumey as it warms up, unveiling more and more fruit depth. Hops remain in a support role, providing soft floral undertones and could actually be welcome in larger quantities. Fresh palate globally, but perhaps a bit on the sweet/fruity, almost juicy side of things to be really drinkable, because the alcohol hiding performance is a masterpiece. Well, based on previous ratings, this is a variable one, but based on this recently distributed batch(Feb 2011), it seems as if they’ve acquired a bit more control on yeast and cleanliness and it’s for the best. Uncomplicated, but well done and not without character. Time to try their lineup again.

TaktikMTL (5641) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2009
Bouteille de 500 ml partagée lors d’une mini dégustation Ratebeer Montréal chez MartinT. Arôme: Odeur funky avec une pointe d’alcool. Apparence: La couleur est blonde légèrement voilée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût d’agrumes avec une pointe d’alcool. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de foin en arrière goût. (Rating #2667)

Boutip (4642) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2011
Bottle: Poured a clear bright golden color ale with a nice foamy head with great retention and good lacing. Aroma of light fruity ester with semi-sweet malt notes. Taste is also a mix of fruity ester with a well balanced semi-sweet malt backbone but unfortunately lacking in peppery yeast notes. Body is quite full for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Well brewed within style guideline though more yeast presence would have provided further complexity.

solidfunk (3658) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - FEB 27, 2014
Decent tripel. Aroma of coriander, citrus and floral yeast. Pours golden amber with puffy head and lacing. Light sweet finish, soft carbonation. Good if nothing super innovative. Bottle from Broue Haha.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2011
The pour reveals a clear golden color with a thick white head. Pleasant aroma of hops, citrus and yeast. Very good flavor of hops, yeast, citrus and honeyish sweetness. The body is full with an oily, vinous texture and lively carbonation. This is quite good, the palate is nicely done, it’s a very enjoyable tripel.

rodenbach99 (3078) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2011
Provenant d’une bouteille de 500ml. Cette bière dorée trouble et voilée offre un nez très invitant au parfum épicé d’agrume. Le liquide une fois en bouche picote la langue. La finale est savoureuse et longue. Le problème de certaine triple est leur atténuation, ici c’est réussi avec une impression de sécheresse très désaltérante.
