snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Popped into the brewpub in Montreal close to the Bell Center for a late lunch, and found a busy place at 4 in the afternoon. Very nice surprise for the beer, a solid tripel. Improved as it warmed, nice hint of sourness in the flavor.

vipinvelp (2837) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2015
Somewhat opaque light amber, off white lasting lacing foam head. Not too strong sweet aroma, slightly sweet taste, typical tripel. (Lille 201507)

Alusmamuts (1016) - LATVIA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle from Les 3 Brasseurs Lille. Amber hazy with very rich off-white head. Yeasty aroma. Yeasty sweet with flower notes and bitter taste, certain sourness. Not bad, but something is missing in comparison with richer taste of Belgian tripels.

Bamsen78 (4395) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle @ the brewpub in Reims. Pours very slightly hazy amber with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of yeast and malt, with notes of fruit. Sweetish, estery flavour with citric notes and touches of hops and fruit. High carbonation. Boozy; feels like more than the ABV stated on the label. Estery aftertaste with notes of malt. Drinkable but boring and non-memorable.

erickok (4304) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - APR 22, 2014
Yellow to light golden body and white head. Simple and dusty pilsner malts, white sugar, not clean yet also not very rustic. Yeast in the bottle lifts this but it doesn’t hide the inherit boring beer underneath. (33cl bottle brought at the brewery in Orléans)

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Oranges, doughy yeast and alcohol are led by fierce bubbling to a moderate spicy hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam settles atop the translucent amber.
-The finish is a bit uninspiring. More bready, some alcohol, some vaguely spicy hoppiness.
-The nose is nicely hoppy, but the hop flavor and finish are quite vague. Nothing bright is happening on that front.
-If I were in France, I’d be happy to find a beer like this. But with Dominus Vobiscum Triple, Fin du Monde, Dunham XXX, etc. available here in Quebec, there is no need for me to seek out this 3 Brasseurs Tripel.
-This is not a bad beer at all; there are simply many more compelling examples of the style in this province.

Eructoblaster (3363) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
Swing-top bottle - 750ml. Beautiful cloudy golden/orange body with a huge white foamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and lime hints. Taste is well balanced. It carries citrusy, grainy, yeasty, and candy notes. Ends with a good, warming bittersweet finish. Not bad.

rodenbach99 (3573) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2013
Swing-top de 750ml. Gusher orange avec une épaisse mousse beige collante. Le résultat en fait une bière trouble et opaque. Une nez de houblon vert. Une bouche passablement légère avec des notes de houblons verts. Une touche d’amertume agréable avec une finale un peu sucrée à en juger mes pieds collants dans me gougounes. Il y a de pire Triple au Québec. 6+

solidfunk (5291) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2013
A little unbalanced with astringency and more bitter than typical triples. Florals, sweet malt. Pours cloudy blonde with fizzy head and good lacing. Soft carbonation, bitter finish. Not bad for the brewery - better than most of their stuff. Bottle from Yonge-Dundas location.

Metalchopz (2606) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
Swingtop bottle from the Ottawa brewpub. Looks like they fill them there when you order, as it takes a while to get it and it does not do any kind of pop when opened. Dry-hopping written on label (and Non-pasterized). Smells quite hoppy with grassy notes. Hints of fruity malt eventually comes out with citrus. Almost smells like laundry after a while. Hazy golden-amber colour with a creamy off-white head, great retention and wavy lacing. The taste is not as hoppy as the nose. Fruity malts with the hop kicking a bit later, but goes on, more and more. Medium-bodied with a mild dry finish. Probably the hoppiest Tripel I have ever had.
