"Tournay Triple is seductively strong Triple beers traditionally contain more malt, and are therefore stronger. But the original idea behind Tournay Triple was to produce a very hopped beer rather than a strong one. When creating all our beers, we want to preserve a balance between the tastes and to ensure that each ingredient can be expressed without crushing the others. To respond to the bitterness of the hops, we therefore had to brew a solidly-built beer, whence the choice of a high alcohol content (more than 9% ABV). Although we had quickly succumbed to the very particular flavours of the New Zealand hop, Nelson Sauvin, many tests were necessary to find the right marriage with other hops, including the English Fuggles, and Cascade, which is the hallmark of all our beers except for Saison. The perfecting of our Triple was therefore a labour of Hercules but it was well worth the trouble!"

cloudy light gold with pillowy white head. Banana and other tropical fruits on the nose. Palate is a little thin for the style, with a little too much effervescence. Beyond that, there are nice flavors of candied citrus fruit. Good, just not quite true to style. Hopefully not a bad bottle--might try this one again.

Laissez vous transporter la ferme avec cette Tournay Triple aux armes de terroir! Cest donc une triple atypique qui nous est propose par la brasserie de Cazeau. Lutilisation de Nelson Sauvin comme houblon ny est certainement pas tranger et ne laisse pas indiffrent. Je trouve nanmoins que cette Tournay triple manque un peu de raffinement (et cela nest pas contradictoire avec les armes de terroir, certains cidres bruts fermiers tant trs fins) et de complexit. Celle-ci reste nanmoins une bire bien construite et un brin htrogne mais respectant les codes de la triple quant sa construction. En verre, la Tournay Triple est blond dor (EBC de 14), quasi limpide et pare dune mousse blanche compacte dun centimtre dpaisseur (bonne effervescence). Le nez se porte de suite sur le terroir avec des armes herbeux et de tourbes. Lattaque est dans la stricte continuit : herbeux, foin et notes tourbes. Vous tes transportes la ferme! La deuxime bouche est plus frache, fleurie, beurre et lgrement pice. Larrire bouche est quant elle peu intressante et aurait pu tre davantage travaille. Lalcool se fait ds lors plus prsent, les 9,2 % Abv tant justement dos pour confrer du caractre la bire. Lamertume est quant elle peu intense et ce malgr un EBU de 60, la faute un sucre lgrement surdos. Le final, juste acceptable, fera apparatre de petites notes de plastique dissonantes avant de nous faire retomber entirement dans des armes de terroir belge. Bire atypique, mais bire intressante, cette Tournay Triple par son ct terroir se laissera dguster sur de bons plats dhiver, voire une bonne galette bretonne!

Une belle triple, puissante, trs typique du style, peut etre plus houblonn que de coutume. Nez floral et fruit, port par les levures et le houblon, avec des notes de fruits. En bouche beau caractre de triple, levure, fruite et malte, assez houblonne. Bon quilibre entre les saveurs, belle douceur.

Lore (2563) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 5, 2017
hazy orange colour, huge, dense white head; aroma of overripe peach an tropical fruits, biscuits and some rotten vegetables; taste of overripe peach, mango, maybe some tangerine, too and earthy-white wine notes; not a usual tripel, but I enjoyed it

SylvainCFC (173) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2017
Robe blonde fonce, troubl, belle mousse blanche compacte, homogne, belle tenue. Nez trs houblonn pour une triple. Houblonnage cru notamment. Nez floral et herbeux. Bouche elle aussi fort houblonne pour une triple avec une prvalence de notes de foin, de ferme, lgrement tourb. Le caractre de la triple belge, levure se rvle aussi avec la douceur malte et une petite sucrosit (ajout). Lamertume du houblon est bien prsente sans excs, mais en balance de la douceur dabord ressentie. Petite longueur amre. 9 degrs trs bien intgr. Texture assez paisse, carbonatation moyenne. Rondeur moyenne. Triple qui ajoute une style de base un biais houblonn. Triple "fermire" vu les notes dgages, ce qui colle bien au lieu o sont brasses les bires de Cazeau.

Syfher (372) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Tulip glass ; from the fridge. Nice triple. Were in front of a usual but good heavy blond orange beer, with a foamy white head, with dry-hopping. The result is obvious : more sweet than bitter... Still nice, but kind of taste like usual big brand beers. The palate is not very long...

thedm (6047) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 26, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation hazy with floating yeast chunks dark yellow orange colored body and a poor lacing. The weak aroma was malt hop. The sharp semi-thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of vinous candy hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.
