Bottle. Glass is half dark amber thick white foam. Moderate aroma of yeast, alcohol and a herb/spice/wild rice note. Flavour seems stronger and more aggressive than expected. After first sip it smooths out but still strong demands your attention. A bit of a rough outdoorsy edge. Strong yeast foundation, peppery finish and some peach-like fruit that keeps emerging.

Poured an orangey color ale with a small foamy head. Aroma of fruity ester and light spicy yeast is interesting. Taste is a nice mix between some Belgian style malt with good notes of fruity ester and some light spicy yeast notes at the end. Body is full for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well done.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A wheaty, sweet and refreshingly fruity Belgian blonde ale. Nice.
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy glowing dark yellow body topped by a medium white head with good retention
In long: The highly aromatic nose is a burst of exotic fruits navigating between passion fruits, bananas, lychees and such. Taste has banana purée, lemon muffin, banana bread, exotic fruits, residual sugars, a tiny bit of ginger, timid hops presence, almost no alcohol. Something very wheaty in the muffin/bread flavors I was getting. The beer manages to be both sweet and refreshing. An interesting twist on the style, I liked it. It was a good beer to drink after we spent the day rollerblading on the Ottawa bike path, because drinking good beer is not all there is to life. Too bad though, I wish it was.

Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brewpub on July 10, 2011. Blonde golden, small head. Aroma of malted barley and sweet spicy notes of herbs. Taste of dry barley and herbs but tasty, slightly bitter spicy. Very good tripel from BDT, but that’s normal!

En fût aux Brasseurs du temps. 9%. Couleur jaune paille, mousse blanche crémeuse. Nez de poires et agrumes. En bouche, fraîche, notes de bananes, poires et houblon. Finale avec une amertume assez présente mais correct. Belle et bonne bière qui fait du bien.
