look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bright hazy straw color, almost golden. Thick extra foamy 5 finger head lasting for more than 15 minutes and creating a high foam island eatable with a spoon. Strong legs and extra powerful but delicate activity.

Aromas and flavors of fruits, citrus, honey or caramel, herbal and floral spices. Well intensified flavors of rich and pleasant sweet apple and lemony taste with some faint bitter spices making it quite accessible.

Slick medium body with champagne like carbonation. Perfectly balanced finish ending with a slightly spicy and smoky bitter orange/clove like feel.

Overall : A strong craft; Delicious flavors, well balanced in all aspects, highly refreshing, perfectly spiced, but slightly too vinous.

From Beverage Warehouse. 500mL brown glass squatty pry-top.
Bottled 2010 Mar 17.

Pours a hazy slightly orange yellow golden with lots of fluffy bone-white head with good retention. Aroma is immediately full of undermodified malts (creamed corn) and smokey Belgian yeast and a little orange/lemon zest.

Palate is sharp with some alcohol burn. Faint wheat-y and yeastiness. Fairly dry for the style, fluffy carbonation.

Notes: Lacking in flavor and class. A little clunky and brash.

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.

From notes made on Jan 19, 2006. Pours an opaque orange brown colour. The appearance made me think of cider for whatever reason. Started with a bit of tan head, but the head didn't hold for too long.

The smell is spicy and tart, black pepper stood out to me. Appetizing, I frequently went back for another smell.

The taste is again quite tart. It is fairly dry throughout. The finish reminded me strongly of a lemon lime soda, like Sprite or SevenUp.

The mouthfeel was a touch lighter than I wanted, but still had some body to it. The carbonation was relatively low, and it was certainly drinkable.

I would love to have the opportunity to taste this beer again. I'd say it was one of the better triple's I've tasted. Thanks to orrshow for splitting this one with me.

Beautiful deep golden color with a fine good-laced white head that stays long, fed by much above average carbonation for a triple. The aroma is malty sweet of caramel and oranges. Very sweet triple with caramelic malt, big orange, apple, alcohol tones. Probably Charlevoix's yeastiest beer (in what I've had anyway). The finish is less interesting, tired hops provides a little wet paperboard bitter taste.
Since the 3 excellent Dominus Vobiscum have become more available recently, I'll make it a duty to go back and re-visit that one knowing that Charlevoix can do wonder with this style (8e jour)

Brought this back from Calgary and decided to pop it open tonight and consume. I'm very impressed by the white billowy head. I had to be careful with the pour to avoid having the beer crest the glass. Now 5 minutes after the pour, there is still a half finger of head lingering with streaky lacing.

Aromas of banana, mint, rock candy, nutmeg, and a hint of pine.

The smell gave a false preview as more flavors exist in the nose compared to the taste. The taste has melon, banana, and mint combining in mild harmony.

With an effervescent feel in the mouth, this 9% brew has a light feel on the tongue. Upon swallowing, my mouth feels wet with some spit clumping qualities.

I am very impressed by the appearance of this beer. Lacing and head doesn't get a whole lot better than this, especially considering it is from a bottle. This is a solid brew and is worth a try.

First I have to admit, I had no clue about this beer when I bought it. Just took it because the label was darn cool!

It turns out this beer is based on belgian style strong beer... Interesting. One of my favorite style in the belgian spectrum. However scary note, it is spicy. Uh Oh...

It turns out that this beer is very good and easy to drink. I like that strong feeling in the mouth.

The finish is dry and bitter. It is so nice. The alcohol hides well and this could be a dangerous beer. Definitely a good beer!

Thanks for sharing Mike, much appreciated. HAzy orange liquid is hiding beneath an off white, frothy cap. Yeasty plums in the nose are very inspiring, and enjoyable. White grapes and apricots, along with some floral spicy notes are also in the air. Plums, grapes, spices and grapefruit all fill the mouth, and satisfy. Finish is warming, and semi-dry. A good tripel, reminding me that Canadian brewers are doing well in their attempt to copy a legendary belgian style. Thanks Mike!

Bottled: 2009 SEP 10:32
From: ZorPrime, 500 ml

A: Pale yellow bodied boasting two fingers of fluffy white head. Head retains for the entire sitting and leaves thick lacing.

S: Strong aromas of citrus fruits, clove spice and some funky yeast. Very pleasant aromas.

T: Much like the aromas, there is a huge front of citrus fruits - pears are prominent. Nice mix of spices and funky yeast. Some bitterness at the end.

M: Light bodied and high carbonation. Creates a foamy texture and leaves a dry bitter aftertaste. Typical Belgian feeling. No alcohol notes.

D: This is a great brew. Thanks again to ZorPrime for this. I have enjoyed it very much and is probably one of my favourite of the style. Wish it were accessible near by.

Special thanks to papat444 for sending us this.

A: Pours exceptionally clear allowing you to view the cratered head from the bottom of the glass. Colour is a pale gold with massive bone white head with pillows of lacing along the sides and a steady stream of carbonation.

S: Tropical juicy fruit of ripe ripe bananas, star fruit, pear, apple and lychee. Mid notes of buttery pastry and finishes with hints of cloves, soapyness and minerals.

T: Pronounced yeasty bread notes which were not apparent on the scent, together with sweet ripe bananas, citrus peel and minerals.

M: Syrupy and thick with mild carbonation and a slightly dry finish. Outstanding.

O: This is another excellent brew from Microbrasserie Charlevoix with excellent elements from the initial pour to the finish. Definitely worth seeking. Thanks again to papat444 for providing us with it.
