look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Found this one at a random little French deli. Poured from a swing top bottle, a orange and hazy beer with a nice dense head that lasted while my wife took a break to feed the baby. Smells faintly of of orange, candy sugar and yeast, with a hint of alcohol at the end. Nothing too complex or special but certainly not bad. Tastes much of the same but a lot less alcohol, more orange and sweetness, a lot less of the spicy yeasty flavors that make most great Triple's. Very smooth on the palate carbonation is fantastic. Although it could have more body, was a bit thin, I found this quite refreshing. Overall a very good triple worth trying but with so many other great ones out there and available I doubt I will buy too many more.

Poured from a swingtop 750ml to a tulip glass.

POP! Color is dull orange with light haze and lots of rising bubbles. Head is white, and towering at first, but comes down nicely a thick partial cap leaving some good lace as well.

Smell brings on some toasted bread and light caramel-like sweetness. Very faint spice and fruits. Quite bland to be honest.

Taste is definitely an improvement but still a tame tripel. Noticeably more fruit (apple and citrus) with yeast, bread, caramel, candi sugar, some bubblegum-like notes.

Mouthfeel is very full, though it doesn't show much alcohol presence it definitely feels bigger than 8%. Not bad, could certainly use more carbonation.

Meh. Not bad but certainly unexciting, especially for a Belgian strong ale. Needs more of everything more or less.

Picked up from Cave a Bulles in Paris on their recommendations for a good French Triple.

Poured from a swingtop, burnt orange color with a slight haziness. Moderate head, thin but nice lacing.

Smell - yeast, bread, banana and alcohol

Taste- Malty, hints of fruit and sweetness, caramel?, hints of alcohol, very little spice or hops

Smooth and drinkable, very little burn for 8% ABV, A bit thin but refreshing

Overall, a solid but not exceptional Triple. If your in France or want to try French beer, I'd recommend giving it a try. If you want a world-class Triple, look elsewhere.
