Zenwolf (269) - Waterloo, Ontario, - FEB 9, 2013
Fantastic brew. Rich and velvety mouth feel and a light fruity and sweet palette. This was well worth the wait. It's a disservice, but it's like a "Light" Quad.. so rich and complex, but muted. Hands down the best Canadian Triple I've tried. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

strowlands8 (195) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2017
This sample was brewed in 2012, so this rating is more reflective of its aging ability. The malt character remains prevalent, overpowering any remaining yeast characteristics. At this point; it no longer resembles a tripel.

mozbee (12) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle from local beer store. This beer is exceptional! It has an exceptional complex taste. One of the best beer of its kind. Not always available, even in specialized stores. It may be brewed only for a certain period or for a limited quantity. A real pleasure to drink. At 10%, I may wish TDD to sell it in smaller bottles, or I may share it with friends.

Sweet, fruity aroma of apricot, grapes, yeast, caramel, bread and spice. Sweet, fruity flavour of peach, orange, caramel, yeast, bread, spice and white wine in a dry, bitter, warming finish.

bytemesis (7610) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 3, 2016
Bottle thanks to Youri! Pours hazy orange, medium beige creamy head, dissipates fairly quickly, decent lacing. Aroma is Brett out the wazoo, grass, basement aromas, honey and floral. Flavor is medium plus sweet, medium funky, loads of Brett and honey. Medium body, high carbonation. Just too damn sweet to be enjoyable.

Bierdimpfe (575) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 2, 2016
Hazy amber color with storming activity. Slightly frothy 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with moderate legs. Flavors of citrus, coriander, apples, banana yeast, sweet grains, faint clove, floral and herbal spices. Bready with thick sugars, lots of spices, great sharpness. Slick smooth medium to full body with champagne like carbonation. Medium to strong finish, ending with a dry vinous citrus orange and estery feel. Overall very good quality craft. Very tasty and filling. The alcohol is incredibly well hidden. Nice intensity, good balance, super fresh. A little heavy on the spices.

ctipping (1667) - Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2016
600 mL bottle. Clear orange from the top of the bottle. Hazy in the middle. Smells of citrus, Belgian yeast, and a strong malt presence. Taste has a ton of malt as well. Almost no citrus here. Yeast lends banana and some spice. Heavy caramel. Dries out quickly. Medium heavy. Medium carbonation. Malty version of a tripel, which might be a generous descriptor.

Adamsville (276) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2016
Apparence : Dore, reflet jaunes ples, bon col blanc crmeux ayant une longue rtention, effervescence moyenne et modrment rapide, trs belle dentelle.
Nez : Levure belge, pices, lgers agrumes et lgrement fruit du type pommes et poires, crales fraches.
Got : Levure dominante, phnols, malt cralier et quelque peu mielleux, fruits moins prsents quau nez. Finale o sentremlent la levure et une touche damertume, celle-ci durant moins longtemps que la levure.
Sensation : Effervescence moyenne, dense, crmeuse, lger picotement prsent partout en bouche, lgre chaleur dalcool, finale de longueur moyenne.
Bref : Got intressant avec une densit impressionnante pour une Triple. Par contre, ce nest pas extrmement complexe ni intense. Les 10% ne se sentent pas et ne se gotent pas non plus. Trs levure, sans tre dbalance pour autant, elle na pas rellement de dfaut, mais nest pas mmorable pour autant.
