fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, - JUN 1, 2014
Dégustée (en fût) le 1er mars 2014 lors de la Cuvée d’Hiver 2014 à Montréal. Bière dorée limpide. Très peu effervescente. Assez forte, assez sucrée, peu amère. Saveur de miel, de céréales, de sucre. Très bonne, se boit bien, rafraîchissante. Alcool bien présent mais ne ressort pas trop.

daje (2829) - NORWAY - FEB 8, 2016
Cafe Sara, january 8th 2016. Clear golden body with a thick white head. Aroma of honey, banana and funk, taste is mild spicy with fresh fruits and wheat, grapes. Fizzy and whitewineish finish. Quite nice!

bastarda (290) - Freiburg, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2016
@ bartlebier’s Tripel Tasting @ bierhandlung, FR, Jan.16; nose: deep, three-dimensional, like walking into an old bar with dark, pipe-tobacco impregnated wood; hints of sweet tobacco, even cedarwood, lighter, sweeter caramel malts, hints of honey. A great, complex Tripel.

bartlebier (2978) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2016
66cl bottle bbJun2017 (2014 Mondial de la Bière 2014) at Biere mit Stil 1: Worldwide Tripel Tasting@Bierhandlung Freiburg JAN2016. - - A very subtly layered, cleanly-engineered New World tripel that packs a 60EBU fruit punch in between the apricot and apple honey tart layers of its body. - The overdosed hops almost kill the yeast-derived subtleties going on underneath the honeycoated layers of malt - yet the palate and tongue is happy to continue exploring. No abv wafts, some warmth. More sweet, rich and "reduced-down" bitter like the syrup resins of a TIPA or barley wine than phenolic and yeast-powered like a BE tripel. Most respectable foreign cover in the 15+ tripel series.

JFF (63) - - DEC 31, 2015
Faible côté arôme, mais belle donne dorée/cuivrée avec une mousse blanche compacte, mais pas très résistante. En bouche, très bon équilibre de l’alcool, l’amertume et le corps. Un produit qui se compare très bien aux dubbel belges.

northropfrye (2973) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 4, 2015
Cloudy orange body white foamy head some lacing. Sweet yeast grain and vanilla cereal aroma. Really nice. A touch of acidity. Taste is sweet, some banana, peach, a touch of dryness. Smooth palate. Really nice tripel.

ljthiessen (969) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 3, 2015
Bottle. Hazy golden amber pour with a white head. Aroma is citrus zest, bread and a bit of candy sweetness. Taste is fairly sweet, candy notes, mandarin orange, lemon zest, some Belgian yeast. Pretty nice tripel, but I'd prefer it more dry.

Kosmokrator (760) - ITALY - NOV 24, 2015
Una buona tripel, maltata, mielosa, fruttata e corposa. Buona struttura e gusto non banale, molto equilibrata. Merita!

Franckg (773) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2015
Robe dorée trouble avec un mince col de mousse. Arômes de pommes fermentées, pêche, alcool, épices et coriandre. Un léger malt sucré en arrière-plan. En bouche, saveurs de sucre de fruits, alcool et coriandre. Pointes de clou de girofle, pain frais venant des levures, citron et orange. Goût doux en général. Légères traces de poivre moulu, un peu herbacé. Texture moyennement épaisse, bon corps soutenue. Une tripel bien construite.

jackl (6357) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Bottle @ BVery’s. Gold pour with a small white head. Nose of honeyed cereal. Mellow toasted bread and nuts. Pretty delicate aroma. Some apricot. The flavor is a bit hot. Substantial. Some vanilla. Oily and rich. Mellow, light toasty bitterness. Full bodied. Not flashy, but quite enjoyable.
