Ouf... Ça goûte pas mal tous les types d’alcool non désirés que je puisse imaginer. C’est sucré et mauvais. Je pensais que les mauvaises critiques précédantes étaient peut-être un peu exagérées, mais elles sont en fait très véridiques.
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2018 In a flight at the brewery. Going to have to agree with the low-ish rating on this one. I didn't bother to look it up - just saw that it was high ABV and appeared to be a flagship ale. I'm glad I only had a small glass of it. pictoman (1283) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2017
Poured from the 650mL bottle. Hazy orange with minimal off-white head. Cloying sweetness with vegetable and hint of wood. Very poor example of a tripel. stantheman (1173) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2017
On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A dark amber beer with a fruity nose. Now this is different! A fruity sour slightly bitter beer. At first the taste is slightly off putting, yet there may be redemption. Another sip or two will tell. I’d say it’s not as bad as previous reviews suggest.I gotta say this is a long ways from my favorite beer. A decent effort in the Belgian style, but something doesn’t add up here. Can’t quite put my finger on it. 3.1 Ferris (18267) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 7, 2016
Draft - Lots of woody almost cedar notes. Copper gold with a decent white head. Woody and sweet boozy yeasty notes. A bold beer. robinvboyer (4886) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2016
Amber pour, beige head. Aroma. Is incredibly boozy, with loads of vegetal yeastiness, and a cloying amount of candied sugar. Finish is cloyingly sweet with an odd canned vegetal flavour. This bares zero resemblance to a tripel, or anything Belgian. This was rough.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouverdfearnley (2518) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2016
Hazy amber color. Light aroma of rotten apples. Strong body, it has some residual sweetness, again that feeling of rotting apples, light fruity esters, and a woody, unpleasant bitterness in the final.
Difficult to control high-gravity fermentation…
Not very good.
Draft to taster
Consummation: Yeasty plum wine.
Adjunct: primarily plum aroma, golden red colour, no head. Good bitterness and some alcohol burn. mcberko (20932) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear cooper / amber with a small beige head. Aroma is subtle, with notes of Belgian yeast and candied sugar. Flavour is nastily sweet, with cloying-as-hell candied sugar and Belgian yeast. Cough syrup finish. Everything I hate about North American attempts at tripels. Nasty amount of residual sugar. Very bad. Lagerboy (2227) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2015
Bomber. Clear medium copper, fading tan foam. Aroma is sweet brown sugary and vegetal. Taste is mostly too sweet rich caramel toffee malts, dark fruity and yeasty, earthy dirty aftertaste. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, low hopped. DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)
