COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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!"

Lore (2433) - 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 (130) - 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 (361) - 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 (5978) - 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.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2016 Aus der Flasche im Bierzirkus in Brssel getrunken. Trbes Amber im Glas mit einer geschtzten meterhohen Schaumkrone. Stabil! Wie soll man an das Bier kommen ? Das fruchtigste Triple, was ich je getrunken habe (Kalthopfung zahlt sich aus).

Pours a three finger white head that fades quickly leaving no lace. Hazy amber color, with a ton of yeast left in bottle. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Light grapefruit hop nose, flavor is mellow grapefruit hops and caramel. $1.95 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, MA.

Medium body. Taste: softsweet start, complex, fruits, again yeast notes, good hopsbitterness. Stay a nice tripel.

Hopverdju (958) - BELGIUM - JUN 2, 2016
Goudblond bier met wit schuim. Geur: redelijk gesloten neus maar toch wat grassige hop waarneembaar. smaak: bitter, lichtjes pompelmoes en wat moutzoetigheid die zorgt voor een goede balans. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Medium volmondig. Ik heb de indruk dat de Cascade hop er vroeger duidelijker uitkwam.
