Pours a hazy straw hue topped with a lofty bright white head. Aroma is grassy and citrusy, with nice yeast and pepper character coming through as well. In the mouth, a sweet malt profile mingles with bready yeast and tingling spice notes. Finishes with a light astringency and boozy aromatics. Forceful yet smooth carbonation makes for an easy drink; alcohol is very well masked. A good example of the style. Metalchopz (3384) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 29, 2012
Sampled the first time at the Festibière d’hiver de Gatineau, January 2012. Now, having from their 750ml bottles, picked-up at my local Métro store. Bottling date: 12/01/17#126 written on back label. Huge amount of carbonation composed from tiny bubbles, creating a massive white creamy head that stays a very long time. The brew is cloudy straw golden colour with an amber hue. The nose has lots happening with fruits (citrus, apples, pears, light bananas), Belgian yeast, alcohol and spices (coriander). The alcohol is quite well-hidden in the mouthfeel, with no burning, just a slight nice warmth. The taste is similar to the aromas with some nice bitterness. A very nice Tripel that reminds me of when Unibroue was on top. A good alternative to Fin du Monde. JulienHuxley (5807) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle. Appearance: Shiny opaque orange with solid foam. Aroma: Honey, white flowers, peach and alcohol ester. Shy but elegant. Unfortunately, it is a sugar bomb. Some white fruits but damn too sweet. Palate is nice, full bodied and lively carbonation makes this one somewhat drinkable. Overall packed with flavors but way too sweet. georgebrassin (176) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2012
750ml Bottle. Cloudy golden blond with a large creamy white head. Aroma is spicy, hoppy, honey and citrus. Light body with very fizzy carbonation. Taste is sweet, hoppy and a bit honey. Finish brings a soft bitterness and some spice in background. Nice triple. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle. Glass is half dark amber thick white foam. Moderate aroma of yeast, alcohol and a herb/spice/wild rice note. Flavour seems stronger and more aggressive than expected. After first sip it smooths out but still strong demands your attention. A bit of a rough outdoorsy edge. Strong yeast foundation, peppery finish and some peach-like fruit that keeps emerging.

Poured an orangey color ale with a small foamy head. Aroma of fruity ester and light spicy yeast is interesting. Taste is a nice mix between some Belgian style malt with good notes of fruity ester and some light spicy yeast notes at the end. Body is full for style with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well done. czar (9066) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2014 on tap at brewpub. bright golden with a decent white head, good retention and lacing. golden honeyed malts, biscuits and toasts, fruitiness - pineapple and small yellow fruits, booze, lots of bitter herbs - coriander hints, pepper, grass. lively carbonation, light to medium body - oily, spicy-herbal-grassy finish. nicely crafted.

In short: A wheaty, sweet and refreshingly fruity Belgian blonde ale. Nice.Quevillon (3089) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2011
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Cloudy glowing dark yellow body topped by a medium white head with good retention
In long: The highly aromatic nose is a burst of exotic fruits navigating between passion fruits, bananas, lychees and such. Taste has banana purée, lemon muffin, banana bread, exotic fruits, residual sugars, a tiny bit of ginger, timid hops presence, almost no alcohol. Something very wheaty in the muffin/bread flavors I was getting. The beer manages to be both sweet and refreshing. An interesting twist on the style, I liked it. It was a good beer to drink after we spent the day rollerblading on the Ottawa bike path, because drinking good beer is not all there is to life. Too bad though, I wish it was.
Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brewpub on July 10, 2011. Blonde golden, small head. Aroma of malted barley and sweet spicy notes of herbs. Taste of dry barley and herbs but tasty, slightly bitter spicy. Very good tripel from BDT, but that’s normal!

En fût aux Brasseurs du temps. 9%. Couleur jaune paille, mousse blanche crémeuse. Nez de poires et agrumes. En bouche, fraîche, notes de bananes, poires et houblon. Finale avec une amertume assez présente mais correct. Belle et bonne bière qui fait du bien.
