4.28/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

030216, 750ml, 9.2%.

Deep gold with a light haze, pours a good head, great lace.

Aroma is lots of tropical fruit with a little funk... which boarders on sweaty gym socks and a dank cellar.

Lots of tropical fruit in the flavour, with a little funk (maraschino cherries and sweat). Not my style of funk, I think I'd prefer the brux. Vanilla and oak in the finish.

Light residual sweetness with a drying alcohol finish.

4.18/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Service: Bottle
Bottled on: Feb-3-2016


A:
Pours a hazy amber-gold with a big dollop of soft, fluffy off-white cream, it settles to a biggish film with sticky lacing. Easy rousin'. (4.5)

S:
Vaugely tart funkiness. Old workbench, hay, pepper, stone fruits, ethanol hint, oaky finish. (4)

T:
Sweet stonefruits with a light earthiness. Big and sweet with overripe apricot with other juicy stone fruits, crusty bread in the middle and a funky, boozy, barnyard mucky middle that comes in at the finish alongside oak—which really blooms as it warms. (4.25)

M:
Soft, full-bodied, alcohol is veiled but not really hidden, fermented juice-like. (4)

O:
Tasty, well-made, interesting beer.
It is a beauty to look at, both the aroma and the taste are complex and form a unified front. There is a really fruity backbone that is off-set with some peppery/funky yeast notes, booze, and a fairly substantial oak character that really makes itself known as it warms (to the point that if it was toned down, I'd probably ad 0.25 to T and S). My only complaints are that I thought it was too sweet (it really could have used a more floral flavor to it) and that the barrel might have been a little overpowering in the smell department. Good beer despite the *steep* price tag. It is nice to finally have a beer from these guys that I am almost completely happy with. (4.25)

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle poured into tulip 19/5/16, bottle from mathiuec via CANBIF cheers dude!!

A clear golden liquid full of massive bubbles, even a gentle pour pumps out three fingers of foam that takes forever to fall, my glass is caked in partial rings all the way down the glass

S lots of brett and wood, some apricot and peach, dried hay, candied pineapple, dried banana, some spice, a hint of leather, and faint booze

T much like the nose but with some honey and soft caramel, more wood, peppery, not as much stone fruit, maybe the faintest hint of smoke but it could just be dirty Alberta air I'm tasting, herbal tea notes come out of nowhere and are hard to explain

M light for the strength, airy but stops short of foam, fairly dry even though it smells sweet, a little grit, funky yeast lingers

O the brett works well with the triple aspects, evolving as it warms, plenty going on in all areas, interesting yet drinkable, another big winner from Quebec that few people know exist

My interest in this brewery has suddenly exploded, seeing how they just had a feature BA article written about them I may not be alone. All the attention is well deserved from what I gather from this bad ass...

4.38/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottle: Poured a slightly hazy bright golden color ale with a large pure white foamy head with excellent retention and some pretty good lacing. Aroma of light tart notes with some lightly sweet malt notes and light funky notes. Taste is a nice mix between light tart notes with light funky ester with some light peppery yeast notes also perceptible. Body is about average with great carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Great level of complexity with great balance with super nice dry finish makes for an way too easy to drink beer.

4.09/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

(A) Pours a crystal clear golden/copper color with a big cloudy head that thickens as it settles leaving curtains of lace and fading into a creamy everlasting caps. The clarity is impressive given that it is bottle conditioned.

(S) It has a big nose, fruity esters, banana, plum, yeast, brad/buscuits and some soft funk in the background.

(T) Lots of nice Belgian triple notes in there, yeast, bananas, plum at the start. The Brett and hops transition the taste cut out much of the residual sugars and giving some funky barn notes. The finish is dry-ish but also a bit murky/dank; the Brett and hops are interacting a bit odd as the beer warms.

(M) Plenty of lively carbonation and a medium body make it drinkable and light.

(O) A tasty beverage. The finish is a bit different and I am still unsure of it. I prefer the other Tripe à Trois Brett.
