Josh’s translation of the French description: La Fringante is a deluxe, triple-fermented beer born of a unique strain of yeast which gives it an unexpected finesse. A champagne-like effervescence, its vigourous presence in the mouth underlines its markedly strong personality of balanced flavours of spices, malt and hops.

reebtogi (3833) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2013
341ml bottle pours a light slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with some grain and yeast and hints of spice. Taste is a big spicy hop bitterness with a grainy malt and fruity sweetness with a yeasty finish. Big carbonation and medium body leave an intense sensation on the palate. This brew really packs a punch and is quite good.

aumax1 (185) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
341ml Bière très goûteuse, petit goût fruité. Très rafraîchissante. Pas trop agressive malgré le 10 % d’alcool. Un peu d’amertume, un petit goût sucré et fleurale. Bien agréable

ljthiessen (164) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours a cloudy pale orange with a small white head. Aroma is citrus and yeast, with notes of honey and flowers. Flavour is sweet, with more citrus and honey, and some light spicy notes. Alcohol is very present in both the aroma and taste. Dry finish. Overall a tasty and nicely balanced Tripel.

sudomorph (380) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a translucent golden colour with a half finger, bubbly head that fades to nearly nothing very quickly. Smells of yeast, spices. Hints of vanilla, citrus, and ripe fruits. Taste is slightly sweet with notes of spice, yeast, and alcohol. Medium carbonation. Medium body. Very good triple. Exactly what I would expect! Well worth a try!

rejtable (1140) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2013
Lovely beer! Pours light brown/orange with no head or lacing. Nose is dough with a lot of spice. Aromas are plums, maybe a hint of clementine, some dough, with a tiny spice finish. Tastes are light sweet with a bit of pepper and maybe a hint of bitterness in the middle. Body is light with lively carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2014 Bière jaune orangée, bien embrouillée, bonne effervescence, surmontée d’un col blanc immaculé, un peu mince, mais mousseux, très dense et persistant.. Arômes de pain frais et de malt fruité (abricot, pêche, poire, pomme…), avec certains effluves plus sucrés (sucre d’orge, miel, caramel), des traces de levure typiquement Unibroue et d’alcool, et de généreuses épices (gingembre, clou de girofle, poivre…). Nez agréable et intéressant, bien complexe, mais qui pourrait être un peu plus intense. En bouche, c’est bien pétillant sur la langue, en plus d’être plutôt mousseux et de présente une excellente onctuosité au palais, très belle rondeur, corps riche et soyeux! Au goût, le malt fruité nous envahit en entrée de bouche, avec ses notes également de pain frais, sucre d’orge et miel avant de céder graduellement la place à un houblon surtout floral, mais également fruité (notes d’agrumes et de fruits tropicaux) et épicé (poivre!) en route vers une finale sèche et moyennement amère. Les chaudes épices et le chaleureux alcool nous accompagne également tout au long de la dégustation, le tout étant intégré à la perfection. Excellente bière, excellent équilibre des saveurs, très goûteuse et intense en bouche, belle complexité.

Très bon. Robe jaune, odeur un peu mielleuse et épicé, goût tout en douceur et en chaleur balancé par un peu d’amertume assez discrète.

maley1 (658) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2013
Hazy amber orange pour with large off white head. Aroma of the signature unibroue yeast, spices, caramel, malts and cinnamon. Taste of yeast, malts, caramel, pepper, slightly fruity. Very similar to la fin du monde except slightly sweeter and a peppery dry finish and fruitier in the middle. Excellent beer!

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Hazy light golden, big head. Nose is that Unibroue yeast, spicy and quite sweet, Taste is pepper spice, malt sweetness, lots of esters. Sharper than FdM, and largely the same but its heaviness weighs it down comparatively, not as much orange. Still though it’s a rocking tripel.
