4.08/5 rDev -0.5%
Poured from a 500ml. bottle, bottled 2012/10/02.
Appearance: Pale gold, pretty clear with slight haze, nice voluminous white head that lasts super long with some lacing.
Smell: Pears, yeast brings out a flowery aroma, heady with hints of spices.
Taste: Mix of pears, bananas, citrus fruit, tail end has a bready feel with some mild spicing.
Mouthfeel: Prickly carbonation, nice & long feel.
Overall: I always enjoy Charlevoix's tripel, maybe more so than Unibroue's.

500ml bottle served in a snifter.
pours a cloudy, bright golden-yellow tone while yielding a foamy 2" head. very nice retention and some patchy lacing. nose offers a good dose of fruity sweetness with notes of yeast, spice, and a little malt. all the trappings of a good tripel.
taste is even better. fruit comes through (apple, maybe a little lemon zest), spice, yeast, and a touch of booze. very enjoyable. medium bodied mouthfeel with some zest carbonation.
overall, nothing otherworldly here but no question it's a very solid tripel, flavorful and tasty. highly recommended.

Wow, really hard to fault this beer. Poured at a good temperature with colossal, off-white, fluffy, foamy, frothy, billowy head that lasts a while and lots of lace. Color is a clear amber with a ridiculous number of bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, bread dough, malt, spice. Flavor's like nose with sweet on top and cut by carbonic tang and finally by bitter of hop and yeast. Huge mouth fill and perfect carbonation. Finish is like flavor, lasts a while, and has some alcohol warmth. Fab beer! Wish I could get it locally.

3.7/5 rDev -9.8%
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 the bottle into a tulip glass. Bottled March 17th 2010.
A fast forming white head that doesn't stick, but always manages to leave a good collar while drinking. Body color and appearance hints at large cola carbonation, but the beer eventually settles into a nice muted orange yellow and slight orb glowing body. Not bad.
Great nose for a triple. Sweet candied malts, hints of apple, a little oaky butter, sweet tropical mushy mango. Dense yeast as well it seems. Very nice.
Taste brings a nice controlled sweetness. Fruit cobbler action with hits of vanilla in the palate. Sweet candy and malts on the finish with a nice bittering hop. Warming yet not boozy with a solid simple mouthfeel that isn't too impressive but not a syrupy mess either.
Really enjoyed this one for taste and pleasure, great feeling and it has a wonderful warmth which doesn't seem to be derived from alcohol for a very masked abv at 9 percent. i would love more!

Pours five+ finger white head that fades very slowly, leaving a good lace. Hazy straw color. Very good carbonation and medium bodied. Belgian yeast nose and flavor is sweet fruit and Belgian yeast. Nice triple. $7.99 for a 500ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma. Bottled Mar 2010.

4.43/5 rDev +8%
A: Pours into the glass a straw coloured body with three fingers of head.
S: Ripe fruits, apples, pears, spicy Belgian yeast, but very clean. Really big smell.
T: Follows nose, with a slight yeast bite opening. The middle is HUGE sweet pear/apple flesh and honey. The yeast dominates the finish. I can't believe this is 9%.
M: Nicely carbonated, smooth. Clean.
O: A great clean example of the style, so heavy on the ripe orchard fruits, that it is definitely one of my favourites in the style. It's not super dry like Westmalle, but I honestly prefer this.
