Was surprised to see this at The Strath liquor store wile in Victoria over the weekend! I don't think I've ever seen it locally.

Appearance . Pours a beautiful gold with a little haze. Topped with almost two fingers of fluffy white head.

Smell. Big light fruits and Belgian yeast, sweet light malts, more fruit coming in the form of red and green apples, and just a hint of classic Belgian spicing.

Taste. Apple juice and nice fruity belgian yeast, pears and peaches, very light clove and bruised banana.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, carbonation is pretty strong but fine and fairly soft.

Overall. Really nice stuff. One of the better tripels I've had for sure.

Special thanks to papat444 for sending us this.

A: Pours exceptionally clear allowing you to view the cratered head from the bottom of the glass. Colour is a pale gold with massive bone white head with pillows of lacing along the sides and a steady stream of carbonation.

S: Tropical juicy fruit of ripe ripe bananas, star fruit, pear, apple and lychee. Mid notes of buttery pastry and finishes with hints of cloves, soapyness and minerals.

T: Pronounced yeasty bread notes which were not apparent on the scent, together with sweet ripe bananas, citrus peel and minerals.

M: Syrupy and thick with mild carbonation and a slightly dry finish. Outstanding.

O: This is another excellent brew from Microbrasserie Charlevoix with excellent elements from the initial pour to the finish. Definitely worth seeking. Thanks again to papat444 for providing us with it.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A:
Pours a slightly cloudy, pale whitish dirty yellow, with a really active pristine white head that is a bit creamy and quite effervescent. Champagne-like carbonation, beautiful. Absolutely perfect head (literally feel likes cream when it gets on your lips). Great retention pretty thick lacing. Takes two pours.

S:
Pretty sweet, floral crispness with some thicker banana/vanilla-scented yeast tones. Some citrus rind, pretty soft smelling.

T:
Not brash. Really refreshing and floral. A little lingering sourness. Some broad mineral tastes.

M:
Soft and creamy with a rising tinge of carbonation. Warm and round. Not overly boozy but there is definitely a little tingle from it. Long, smooth, gentle finish.

O:
An all-around enjoyable experience from start to finish. Gorgeous, smells nice, delicious. I honestly expected nothing so good. On my way to get more.

3.9/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a fairly clear, light golden color, large effervescent head, bubbles all around the sides and bottom of the glass. Head leaves some thick lacing as it recedes (recedes pretty quickly though).

As the description on the bottle says, this does smell fairly hoppy for a tripel; smells of fairly bitter citrus, orange zest and grapefruit, pepper with pretty aggressive spice, some yeasty banana, some flowers. Has a very sharp character overall.

Taste has the same citrus up front but here it's more sweet than bitter, there's also a nice yeasty sweetness that tastes the same as the Blanche I had before this so in guessing it's the same house yeast, spices and pepper again but much milder. Nice balance between the hops and the yeasty character (this is also not fresh so hopes are likely not what they were).

Excellent mouthfeel much like the Blanche, very soft and milky/creamy.

Very solid tripel, has a lot in common with the other Charlevoix beers I've had.

7.9/10

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.

4.43/5  rDev +8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a Charlevoix glass.

A: pours a hazy gold with a high fluffy head that stays around for quite a while. When it breaks down, it leaves a small film and good lacing.

S: the smell is sweet and yeasty. There are floral and fruit tones present.

T: sweetish...fruits come through as does the yeast. It is a light and pleasant taste.

M: soft and creamy. Carbonation is there but not overpowering. It is a smooth beer.

O: a nice triple. Charlevoix does a nice job this beer. I appreciate the smooth and refreshing taste that comes through. This might be my go to summer beer.
