Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2012
Bouteille 750ml. De couleur dorée et voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes, léger de fruits tropicaux) et légèrement épicées (poivre très doux, traces de coriandre), moyen de blé, léger de sucre bonbon avec des notes de pain et de houblon herbeux. Moyenne-ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas ainsi qu’une texture riche, et moyennement crémeuse. Goût de levures fruitées sucrées (agrumes, léger de fruits tropicaux, traces de bananes) et très légèrement épicées (poivre) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût malté sucré avec un léger goût de pain et de blé ainsi que des notes de sucre bonbon. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve des notes d’alcool réchauffantes en arrière-goût jusqu’en finale, où s’y ajoute une légère amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen-long et aux petites notes asséchantes, composé d’un goût de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes) avec une légère amertume d’alcool doux et de houblon herbeux.

probstblueribbon (2760) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
750 ml bottle from the brewery, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Bottling Date: 12/01/07 #566.

App.: Cloudy golden with lots of big yeast flecks and a rocky white head. Aroma: Bright citrus, lots of alcohol, earthy coriander, fruity esters, caramel notes, quite malty and also spicy, tropical fruits, a touch savoury. Palate: Medium body, very full, rounded effervescence. Flav.: Quite malty with plenty of lemon peel and booze, earthy coriander notes, wheat and lots of yeast, a dirty Triple indeed; sweet with good bitterness and a long, alcoholic and citrus finish.

Big, brash, unrefined, not particularly enjoyable.

JulienHuxley (2549) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. Appearance: Shiny opaque orange with solid foam. Aroma: Honey, white flowers, peach and alcohol ester. Shy but elegant. Unfortunately, it is a sugar bomb. Some white fruits but damn too sweet. Palate is nice, full bodied and lively carbonation makes this one somewhat drinkable. Overall packed with flavors but way too sweet.

asheft (2447) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2010
[on tap at brewpub] Strong tropical fruit aroma with a little black pepper. Foggy orange-yellow under lacy white. Very sweet pineapple flavour with a fruity, sour tang and low bitterness. Moderate to low carbonation, sweet and sour finish, refreshing with a light body.

Quevillon (2407) - Sainte-Thérèse, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2011
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!

Wow this beer kicked my butt. Aroma of fruit and spicy yeast. Taste is hop, peppery spice and malt. Absolutely fantastic. My favourite of the sampler.

Metalchopz (2130) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 29, 2012
Sampled the first time at the Festibière d’hiver de Gatineau, January 2012. Now, having from their 750ml bottles, picked-up at my local Métro store. Bottling date: 12/01/17#126 written on back label. Huge amount of carbonation composed from tiny bubbles, creating a massive white creamy head that stays a very long time. The brew is cloudy straw golden colour with an amber hue. The nose has lots happening with fruits (citrus, apples, pears, light bananas), Belgian yeast, alcohol and spices (coriander). The alcohol is quite well-hidden in the mouthfeel, with no burning, just a slight nice warmth. The taste is similar to the aromas with some nice bitterness. A very nice Tripel that reminds me of when Unibroue was on top. A good alternative to Fin du Monde.

Fred82 (2093) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2010
On tap at BDT.
Appearance : Hazy yellow, some lacing not much.
Aroma : Yeasty, quite spicy and a bit peppery. Some wheat and coriander. Some fruity hops with notes of passion fruits.
Taste : Yeasty with notes of banana. Some spices and a little bit tart. Crisp. Finish is a little bit hot. Not too much considering its 9%
Palate :
Overall : Refreshing and rather drinkable. Taste is pretty spicy. Taste better than nose. Quite crisp. Very nice beer.

MrManning (1982) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2009
Three Bridges pours a hazy yellow with orange hues in the light. It is topped with a frothy blecahed white cap. Pretty lace. Nose is of yeasty esters and fruit, very malty, quite spicy and floral. Tastes of sweet fruit, floral and herbal hops, very yeasty. Creamy mouthfeel, full bodied, but no hint of the ABV. Very good.

pushkinwow (1843) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2012
750ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha. Clear golden yellow with a huge white head that quickly settles down to a nice one finger height. Surprisingly light aroma, nice combination of yeast and spice, grass, and alcohol. High carbonation, moderate body, sweet with a hint of bitterness that grows as the beer progresses, actually becomes quite bitter, pepper, coriander and some more yeast. One of the better bottle offerings from BdT.
