Vivat Triple

Vivat Triple (8.3%): a triple ale from France. The pottery-style bottle caught my eye! I had a good feeling about it.

  • Pours a beautiful cloudy golden liquid.
  • Smells flowery mostly rose.
  • The flavor is quite dry almost smoky.
  • The after-taste is very flowery: hints of rose, violette. There is also a fruity sensation that comes later: mostly lemon and peach.
  • Mega Buzz.
  • Again the original bottle is just superb.

Verdict: a world-class strong ale with a unique complex flavor. Highly recommended.
