Notes / Commercial Description:

This may be my favorite trippel. It was a very strong piercing beer with a lot of flavor and sweetness as well. The smell of fruit and hops filled the glass as I poured it and the champagne like bubbles were overwhelmingly graceful! The aromas were fantastic! Then after a quick settle the taste of this was just perfect! It was sweet and warming, and the unfiltered goodness fills your mouth with malty flavors. I highly suggest trying the "holy water" and giving Canada a thumbs up for one GREAT beer!

07/02/13 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. All the cliches I run through miss the mark here. This is an extremely refreshing beverage that has a clean, refreshing effect on the palate, a substantial mouth feel/body but leaves one wondering what just happened? Magic is all I'm left with.

01/16/13 On tap a Rattle n Hum, NYC. Yes, yes, yes. If it wasn't for the 7.7 ABV I'd be all over this stuff. Seductive in a Rubenesque way. Lots of body. As a huge Fin du Monde fan, she needs to watch her Ps & Qs as I could swing this way with no regret.
