BEER INFO

Brewed by:
À La Fût
Quebec, Canada | website

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.70%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
La Tripe à Trois est un clin d'oeil au style belge triple. Normalement de couleur blonde et tirant près de 9% d'alcool, la Tripe à Trois n'en fait pass exception. Cette grande bière à déguster à l'apéro est composée de malts québécois biologiques et de houblons européens. Bien que l'alcool colle aux parois buccales, les saveurs des levures enrobent le palais pour offrir une expérience gustative typiquement belge. Accompagnée d'un cheddar fort, cette triple saura plaire aux amateurs de blondes qui, sans équivoque, sortent de l'ordinaire. Les amateurs de bières complexes seront heureux d'apprendre qu'une partie du brassin repose en fût de chêne. De plus, une seconde partie du brassin fermente dans un deuxième fût de chêne avec des levures de type Brett-anomyces. Méconnues au Québec, ces levures sauront surprendre l'amateur de bière de tout acabit.

660/900, Big thanks to Hoppypocket for this treat.

Appearance. Pours a cloudy, rich gold-amber with 1.5 fingers of thick looking, nearly-white head.

Smell. Sour apples and tons of bretty funk, fairly dry. Just a hint of toasted light malts. Singin' "Funky Town" in my head now.

Taste. Whoa, massive funky brett, a little fruity belgian yeast and spice with some light malts. Very nice if you like the funk. High abv is very well hidden.

Mouthfeel. Medium-full body, medium-strong carbonation.

Overall. Another great beer from À La Fût. Tons of funk and very drinkable. This brewery is quickly becoming my favorite in QC. Well done.

Draft: Poured a light copper color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of wet leather originating from loads of Brett and a cut dry finish. Taste is very funky with loads of Brett notes and some wet leather, light barnyard side notes which are quiet perfect. Body is quiet full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. First time I tried something from this brewery and I am now curious to try more.

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

Poured from a 341 ml bottle into a stemmed tulip glass.
Bottle Date: 8/2013; Poured 10/2013

A: Clear and light copper in color. Pours to 1 finger of bubbly off-white head and falls to a sudsy collar with a bit of lacing.

S: A pronounced sourness but not overwhelming, some sweet malt, a bit oaky; a nice big Belgian nose (banana, lemon), wood.

T: Wow, very complex! The big grain bill gives a round sweetness typical of triples but the Brett sourness really dries the finish off with only a kiss of hop bitterness at the end. The oak aging really mellows everything out.

M: Medium-high body and medium carbonation; smooth and round with the carb really lighting up the beer.

O: I very enjoyable brew; complex with a great mixture of sweet malt and tart sourness.

***Bottle 818/900***

Thanks to hoppypocket for this one.

Poured from a 341ml. bottle, bottled Aug. 2011.

Appearance: A gorgeous orange-peach body, quite hazy with a good 3-4 fingers worth of head. Sticks around with decent draping.

Smell: Definitely some brett kicking the funk a bit with strong strawberries and some peaches.

Taste: The brett is undeniable (and great) with lactic fruit, strong presence of strawberries with some wood in there as well. A bit tart but also has some sweet fruit and ends with a spicy note.

Mouthfeel: Prickly carbonation is felt as is the acidic aspect which is not overdone but comfortable.

Overall: Very well done. Enjoyed the moderate funk as well as the fruit medley. Worth it for sure.

Special thanks to hoppypocket for sending this beer out west.

A: Golden yellow with a scant white head just rimming the glass, plenty of active streams of carbonation percolate upward.

S: Superb mix of bretta and triple. Mixes the sweet banana malts & cloves traditional in a triple with the funkiness of bretta topped with a solid yeasty profile.

T: Sweet flavors of over ripe bananas, spicy cloves, ginger and pepper finished with an undertone of barnyard funkiness. Like the smell, the yeast offers a strong note that supports the sweet triple & compliment the bretta funk. Surprising mix that compliments one another expertly.

M: Smooth and creamy, coats the palette well and offers a pleasant lingering of barnyard.
O: A surprising mix that at first glance seem like opposing forces, but the distinct elements of the triple and the bretta compliment each other like butter and french pastries. Each also manages to stand alone in both the flavour and smell. A creative mix that is surprisingly delicious.

Bottle shared by jerc on RB, bottle 601/900. 12oz bottle into a tulip. 9.2% alcohol. Bottled August 2011.

Poured an unfiltered browned orange, cream coloured head with light lacing and good retention. Nose has some light spicing, apple, musty brett, with an underlying sweet tripel character. Taste has quite a bit more barrel, pinot comes through, some incense/permanent marker like funkiness (odd but not really offensive), spicy, green apple flesh and a sweet golden tripel malt. Medium thick body, medium carbonation. A curious funk to this beer, a nice tripel with some certainly unique barrel/funk/brett going on.

2013 Vintage, thanks to mTomlins!

Pours a nice head, thin ring of retention shows some lace.

More of a sourness to the aroma than barnyard funk, with the usual tropical fruits and phenols in a triple.

Rainier cherry flavour upfront with some nice tartness. Some underlying leather, but there's way more tartness than something like Orval. Tropical fruits and a hint of spice round out the flavour. Subdued bitterness.

Moderate body has a light acidity, with a slightly drying finish.

Thanks, Alex. Bottle into Darkness tulip.

A - Pours a mirky golden yellow color, small cream-color head, thin collar.

S - Oak, fruity, slight spice, some honey, and funky brett. Light sweetness from the base beer and the brett work together well. The 9% is really nowhere to be found. Good stuff.

T - Nice level of brett, fruits, sweet toasted malts, light honey. The alcohol is well-hidden for 9%. Finish is light sweetness and funky brett.

M - Light body, good carbonation, easy to drink.

O - A nice enjoyable brett'd Tripel that we all seemed to enjoy much more then the Pinot barrel version. I would have this one again for sure.

Thanks to Hoppypocket for this lovely extra!

A: 1/4" cream coloured head over honey coloured liquid with good clarity.

S: Sour funk and yeast.

T: Sour funk up front which transitions midway to a sourdough bread and ends in a honey and pear finish.

M: Medium to thick viscosity and a medium to high level of fine carbonation.

O: Very surprising Tripel, I have had funk with my Saisons, but never with a Tripel. I believe this was because it was aged in chardonnay barrels? Either way its an excellent beer.
