Bottle at L'Autre Oeuil in Aylmer. Fun to get this hard-to-find.Light yellow coloured body with bubbly head. Very lacey. Above average carbonation.Yeasty bite to it, good drinkability and edgy, a good supper accompaniment. Above average full mouthfeel.

Bottle; Poured a lightly hazy clear light yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of lightly overcooked vegetable with grass and hay is not as awesome as I was expecting. Taste is a nice enough mix between some hay and grass with a solid malt backbone. I was expecting more hops based on the name and less overcooked vegetable. A bit of of a disappointment.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

Real light color, almost pinot grigio white, but fills the glass with a nice lemon orb glowing color, and an opaque appearance. Nice small rising column of carbonation in the middle, with a nice matching bright white rocky head. THick hard top with shampoo like retention and hanging on long.

Mild subtle aroma. Not much sweetness or hints of hop or much of anything. Mild bread yeast dough, maybe some honey but that's about it.

Mouthfeel off the bat is what I first notice on first sip. Big and heavily carbonated. Lots of quinine tonic water like feel and aromas. A bit gaseous. Body is really not big and thick enough to support this and it becomes distracting. Some spicy notes and warm malts with classic honey sucrose action in the mid palate.

Overall not bad, but the big carbonation on this really took down my enjoyment of it quite a bit.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a hazy, light to medium straw amber with a two finger white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of citrus, apple and pear, Belgian yeast, light grassy hops and a bit of skunkiness; slightly floral. Flavor is light caramel, apple and pear juice, clove, Belgian yeast, light citrus, lots going on here. Starts semi-sweet and dries out to an almost medicinal herbal and hop bitterness with an odd, but pleasant aromatic basalmic component. Medium bodied with peppery, active carbonation. An unusually flavored tripel, with complex and interesting flavors that develop throughout the taste. The aromatic aldahyde flavor is unusual, but fits with the other flavors as well as the clove and hop bitternss. I enjoyed tasting this and trying to figure it out. More citrus develops over time. Unusual, but nice drinking tripel. I will buy this again.

A: The beer is slightly hazy light yellow in color and has a moderate to high amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high bright white head that took a long time to die down and consistently left a short head covering the surface and thick lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of peppery spices are present in the nose along with some hints of yeast.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste starts out somewhat spicy and seems to transition to notes of pale malts and hints of alcohol. The spices reappear and linger through the finish.
M: It feels quite dry on the palate and not that heavy (a light- to medium-body is perceived) because a high amount of carbonation seems to lighten things up. The spiciness seems to prickle your tongue a little.
O: By the taste of alcohol, you can definitely tell that this beer is strong, but the high amount of carbonation helps to lighten up the body and make this a little more in the way of being drinkable.

27th May 2012: On tap at the Lupulus brewery's restaurant, "Les 3 Fourquets"; poured into one of their 25 cl chalices. I had two of them during my stay.

Light blond/yellow body with a hazy look and a good solid head on top of each glass.

Yeasty nose with not much else to report smell wise.

The taste was refreshing and yeasty (like the aroma) with a fruity hop feel in the flavour: bitter but with some sweetness giving the beer a pleasant balance.

Very different to most Belgian Tripels I've encounted but most enjoyable.

Nose bubbly evokes bitter citrus and some spice. The body is complete, both slightly sweet, slightly acidic and slightly bitter, which gives it a real balance. Hops are aromatic and earthy. The post-taste is bitter and dry, highlighted by flavors of citrus quite substantial. A good triple indeed conventional in its taste but, in addition to having a strong balance drunk relatively easily.

In any case, it is not a Belgian IPA but a TRIPLE. In addition to being written on the bottle, this is how the brewer names his creation, his beer.
