2.78/5 rDev -32.2%
From Beverage Warehouse. 500mL brown glass squatty pry-top.
Bottled 2010 Mar 17.
Pours a hazy slightly orange yellow golden with lots of fluffy bone-white head with good retention. Aroma is immediately full of undermodified malts (creamed corn) and smokey Belgian yeast and a little orange/lemon zest.
Palate is sharp with some alcohol burn. Faint wheat-y and yeastiness. Fairly dry for the style, fluffy carbonation.
Notes: Lacking in flavor and class. A little clunky and brash.

$ 8.99/16.9 oz (500 mL) bottle at vintage estates in Boardman. OH
Bottled Mar 17 2010 at 40 degrees into snifter
Aroma of yeast phenolics.
Head small (2 cm), white, frothy, rapidly diminishing to irregular layer between 2 – 8 mm thick. The second pour after the brew has warmed, is thickerand more lasting.
Lacing OK – islands and archipelagos of mostly small bubbles.
Body medium yellow, yeast haze.
Flavor begins with a spicy, slightly clovey, taste with a light bite. Yeast phenolics are evident, becoming more so as the beer warms up. The alcohol cannot be tasted but immediately begins a stomach burn. No hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium, creamy, lively carbonation.
Another tripel which meets the style criteria. Not fantastic and not bad – average taste.

Thin, watery looking, airy head disappears quickly with not really any lacing.
Mild spices, faint smell.
Not really than much going on taste wise, pretty light tasting for a triple. The ABV is really not noticeable, its 9% is pretty well hidden with almost no alcohol bite. Not that interesting honestly, though not offensive in any way.
The consistency is too thin for me, feels like it looked on the pour. Medium amount of carbonation.
Pretty drinkable though not really that interesting. I wouldn't buy this again or necessarily recommend it when there are so many other beers in this style that are worth checking out. Not offensive, pretty easy to drink; just not spectacular.

500mL bottle purchased from Jovi in Gatineau. Pours a hazy, pale gold with lots of fluffy white head. It gets slightly cloudy when the whole bottle is poured. Solid yeasty aroma that seems to give away some of the alcohol content. Flavour is strong and yeasty, with a good peppery bite as it goes down the throat. Although the flavour is strong, it feels like it's missing something (spices?) to make it particularly tasty.

Beautiful deep golden color with a fine good-laced white head that stays long, fed by much above average carbonation for a triple. The aroma is malty sweet of caramel and oranges. Very sweet triple with caramelic malt, big orange, apple, alcohol tones. Probably Charlevoix's yeastiest beer (in what I've had anyway). The finish is less interesting, tired hops provides a little wet paperboard bitter taste.
Since the 3 excellent Dominus Vobiscum have become more available recently, I'll make it a duty to go back and re-visit that one knowing that Charlevoix can do wonder with this style (8e jour)

Reviewed from tasting notes on March 26, 2011. Thanks Michael for sharing. Bottle dated November 16, 2010.
Beer on lees, so we made sure to pour carefully to avoid disturbing the sediment. Poured crystal clear, yellow, with no head (likely due to careful pour). What foam did form disappeared quickly. Some lacing.
Aromas of apple, fruit and alcohol in the bouquet.
The taste was a bit harsh. Fruity and a bit bracing. Could do with some aging to take the edge off.
Mouthfeel was high carbonation, a little much for me and acidic.
This is a decent Canadian Triple, but still not quite in the same league as Fin du Monde. If I see some on my next Montreal visit, will grab some and age for 2 years or so and give it another go.

500ml bottle in Duvel tulip
Bottled on 3/5/14
purchased at La Duchesse in Quebec City
A: Golden color, crystal clear, thick white head that drops quickly
S: Spicy Belgian yeast
T: A very disticint Belgian yeast flavor, lots of spicy phenols, very little fruity/estery aromatics, almost no malt character, just a little malt sweetness.
M: Creamy, but crisp mouthfeel, nice level of carbonation
O: A good Tripel, very well made, but it doesn't stand out. I would purchase again, but it would be price dependent.

Purchased from a fine shop in Hull Quebec.
Pours a golden honey with soft and plentiful head.
Smell - Smells EXACTLY like a Chardonnay wine. If this was a blind tasting, i'd have thought it was a sweet white wine. Slight pear with sweet fermented grapes.
Taste - fascinating development of flavors. It hits the tongue as a sweet white wine with strong pear and apple flavors then quickly develops into a malty beer filled with cloves and cardamom. As the spice leaves the strong bitterness from lemony hops develops. My only critique is the bitterness builds a bit to strong and seems to overpower the finish.
Nevertheless, like many quebec beers, a fantastic brew.

A - Pours with two fingers of white foam on top of a clear, golden body. The head settles at a moderate pace and leaves nice lace on the glass.
S - A strongly yeasty aroma of clove and pear with a bit of honey malt and pepper.
T - Sweet malt with pear and clove up front. More thick malt in the middle with peppery character and clove. The beer finishes pepper, honey, clove and a lingering anise character.
M - A thick body, high carbonation, and a fairly dry finish.
D - This is a big, and very thick beer and while it fits in the style, it has an overly thick malt character and way too much clove for my taste. There are some promising pepper and pear notes up front, but they are overwhelmed by excessively sweet malt and make for a beer that is lacking in balance and subtlety.

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, some fruits and malts. Taste is fruits, alcohol, yeast esters, some hops, pretty good. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall this is a solid beer.

A- Head forms a creamy mound in the glass like a marshmallowy iceberg. Lots of lacing. Liquid is golden with strings of bubbles rising. Head stays until the last sip. Very clear beer until you add the yeast sediment.
S- Powerful yeast. Cider. Alcohol. Simply smells fermented.
T- Alcohol is strong reminds me a bit of rubbing alcohol. A little green apple. Simple grain. Clove
M- High carbonation no doubt about that. Quite aggressive on the tongue. Mouthfeel is full.
D- Medium to high especially considering alcohol content.
This seems to be a fine simple brew. Fine and Simple.
