Tournay Triple – Brasserie de Cazeau, 9% ABV – 75cl., (Templeuve, Belgium)
description from ratebeer.com:
“A blond IPA beer with 9% alcohol brewed with Pilsen barley malt and 4 hops, with a dry hopping during maturaton. Tournay triple is a particularly hoppy beer leaving a white wine taste at the back of the mouth. We recommend you drink Tournay Triple with seafood or strong cheese.”
- Style: Abbey Tripel
- Taste: Alcoholic chamomile-pine honey malt bitter hopped
- Where I got it : Brewery Creek Liquor Store
How much: $12 (after 10% off) – 75cl., January 2013
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: not 100%
Visual: Heavy duty beer bottle. Pours almost clear golden yellow with a humungous lasting foamy head, lots of sticky lacing, tons of activity.
Nose: Floral chamomile honeyed malts, medium bright. (lvl-6)-pungency.
Attack: alcoholic bitterness, cream-fizzy mouthfeel,
Finish: soft bitter grapefruit hops, lingering bitter hopped/alcoholic finish.
Summary: Lots of fizz, pine, chamomile-floral, and alcohol bitterness. Quite heavy on the palate and tough to finish a 75cl bottle alone.
