3.78/5  rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours clear, light golden with small foamy head. The head diminishes but leaves a token film.

Aroma is very floral, almost wild flowers rather than a fresh bouquet.

Taste is pretty good, a real honey sense and the alcohol is noticed as should be the way with a tripel. Actual strongest flavours are elderflower and a little hop....quite nice.

Feel is a little dry on the tongue, particularly the aftertaste sensation. Again, the alcohol is noticed and this feels a lot more boozy than it actually is.

Overall I concur with the general opinion of this one, a good solid French Tripel, there are one or two better from the region, and lots way better from Belgium.

Still worth sampling.

Classic tripel but very well crafted. Fruity on the peach, the apricot and a bit herbal without being too sweet. Kind of dry astringent mouthfeel. A bit boozy.

The sweetness combined with the alcohol content makes it appropriate for the fans only.

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.

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.

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.
