Bose-Einstein correlations of identical bosons are sensitive to the chaoticity of particle emitting sources.
In particular, the possibility of coherent pion radiation from a condensate is expected to suppress such correlations.  Two and three-pion correlations at low relative momentum with ALICE are presented and an estimate of the coherent fraction of pions is given.
