Quevillon (2452) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2010
Drank on day 3 of the 2010 Mondial de la Bière. Honey blonde, small head. Sweet aroma of hops barley. Good taste of barley sugar, well malted, good bitterness with a bit of alcohol. It is a good tripple, period!

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Draft. Pours a hazy golden body with a large white head. Citrus sweetness, spicy yeast tones, very floral reminds me a bit of a nice dry saison, quite nice. Light sweetness a bread y body with a bitter floral hoppiness. Finishes very dry with no real residual sweetness, a great triple.

lesifflebiere (1210) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 20, 2013
Dorée cuivrée avec un bon col de mousse, elle semble mi-épaisse. En nez, assez discrète mais les céréales sont présentes, ainsi que les sucres. Légère en bouche pour une bière si costaude, elle dévoile lentement des arômes fruités, caramélisés, bref une belle complexité. Petite sécheresse bienvenue en fin de gorgée. Une belle tripel, originale, et très bien faite en général.

Lubiere (9789) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2010
A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, pleasant pungeant orange peels, with coriander and smooth alcohol. In mouth, a smooth candy sugar with curacao, cardamom, warming alcohol, quite nice. On tap at Mondial 2010.

Beerdedone (2584) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Sampled at vt brewfest 2010. Pours gold in color with a white head. Aroma was sweet with citrus, orange peel, and a bit of caramel. Flavor was slightly sweet with candi sugar, citrus, apricot and alcohol. Decent triple

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2012 My Bottom Line:
Citrusy, herbal and spicy, this elegant Tripel proposes pear esters atop its pils malts, leading to a lasting green hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the misty golden shine.
-The body is nicely dried out and effervescent, making all flavors feel like a fluffy, flaky pastry.
-After a few months, this seems like it has reached a peak, balance-wise. A young bottle proves this brew needs time to come together...
-The spiciness is well integrated to the rest of the flavor profile at this point in its life (7-8 months old?) and is levelled with all other flavors’ medium intensity.
-The very low carbonation in the bottle works wonders for the bourbon-barrel-aged version, but makes the ’regular’ version’s flavor profile stagnate quickly.

Bottle and on tap at the brewery.

Fred82 (2114) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2011
Sample at Winter Warmer Montreal 2010
Appearance : Hazy pale yellow.
Aroma : Yeast and spices. Some malt with herbal hops. Very light citrusy hint. Notes of white grapes.
Taste : Nice yeast with spices and herbal notes. Finish dry and yeasty. Spices and herbal hops too. Light bitterness with notes of alcohol.
Overall : Quite drinkable. A little bit too warm maybe. Nice yeast. Awesome citrusy profile.

rodenbach99 (3097) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 30, 2011
Une pinte au Grillon. Bière blonde-dorée passablement trouble, mousse blanche qui disparut rapidement. Nez qui offre de belles notes épicées avec une touche de levure. En bouche la bière est très agréable, notes épices, une touche de levure belge agrémente le tout, bonne atténuation,
