look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a fairly clear, light golden color, large effervescent head, bubbles all around the sides and bottom of the glass. Head leaves some thick lacing as it recedes (recedes pretty quickly though).

As the description on the bottle says, this does smell fairly hoppy for a tripel; smells of fairly bitter citrus, orange zest and grapefruit, pepper with pretty aggressive spice, some yeasty banana, some flowers. Has a very sharp character overall.

Taste has the same citrus up front but here it's more sweet than bitter, there's also a nice yeasty sweetness that tastes the same as the Blanche I had before this so in guessing it's the same house yeast, spices and pepper again but much milder. Nice balance between the hops and the yeasty character (this is also not fresh so hopes are likely not what they were).

Excellent mouthfeel much like the Blanche, very soft and milky/creamy.

Very solid tripel, has a lot in common with the other Charlevoix beers I've had.

7.9/10

Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a cloudy dark golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, some fruits and malts. Taste is fruits, alcohol, yeast esters, some hops, pretty good. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall this is a solid beer.

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

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a Charlevoix glass.

A: pours a hazy gold with a high fluffy head that stays around for quite a while. When it breaks down, it leaves a small film and good lacing.

S: the smell is sweet and yeasty. There are floral and fruit tones present.

T: sweetish...fruits come through as does the yeast. It is a light and pleasant taste.

M: soft and creamy. Carbonation is there but not overpowering. It is a smooth beer.

O: a nice triple. Charlevoix does a nice job this beer. I appreciate the smooth and refreshing taste that comes through. This might be my go to summer beer.

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

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.
