3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice, clear golden hew with tons of carbonation. An aggressive pour will cause you to stop pouring about half-way through due to the huge amount of carbonation. Bubbles spiral towards the thick white head the entire time this brew is in the glass. Almost looks like champagne.
I have to admit, the marketing on this beer sucked me in. I’m a sucker for old sailing ships and this one got me. The aroma, ouch, is awful. I had low expectations after getting my nose on this brew. But then I tasted it. Man, it totally redeemed itself. Has a real fruity taste. Definitely some banana in the palate. Finishes nice and smooth. This is not what I expected, but this beer did a better than average job of delivering.

La mousse tient très bien et les bulles sont belles à voir... Bien acidulée, avec la levure très présente. Je ne suis pas un amateur de Triple alors cela peut altérer mon jugement de ce produit.

Bottle at Chew, Winnipeg. I actually didn’t pay close enough attention because I thought I had already rated this but I guess I’ve never had it before. Cool. Well, it’s a nice sweet malty belgian strong ale with quite a lot of flavour. I was actually thinking it was more flavourful than I had remembered but that’s probably because I was remembering a different beer. Nice.

belle couleur ambre, mousse disparait rapidement. Un belle atome de fruit, pomme/poire. biere forte un peu trop sucre, mais c’est le style. Tres bonne overall, un peu trop gazeuse par exemple.
