Pours a thicker medium-to-dark golden color. Very sticky off-white lacing, lots of little carbonation bubbles.

Bananas in the smell big time and forefront. Some spices come in, maybe cumin or more grainy spices, sweet malts and grassy yeast. Smells a lot like banana bread.

The taste is wonderful. A bit tart up front, then sweet malts play out. Flavor comes out with a great medium-bodied yeast characteristic and grainy. Finishes dry and bitter with what seems like hops. This beer’s got a bit of everything in it. It all comes together so nicely, yet so independently; it really works. Flavors in your mouth go from one to the next perfectly. Reminds me a lot like how Epics “Big Bad Baptist” drank with distinct flavors like punch after punch. Very slight alcohol detection once it warms up, really the only complaint.

Mouthfeel gets bigger once it warms up. This is a really nice beer.

had on tap at La Fine Mousse in Paris

A- brilliant golden color with white foamy big bubbled head

S- super yeasty bubble gummy, cloves, banana, passionfruit

T- sweet typical belgian candyness with nice peppery grassy hopiness that cuts the sweetness

M- nice creaminess. again from Saint Rieul, not too thin not too thick. They seem to really nail mouthfeel on Belgian styles, which tends to be my major apprehension with Belgo's. lovely though

O- excellent, easy drinking, and although a bit atypical for the hop presence, fits in well with the style. a nice counter to a style oversaturated by sweetness and syrupyness.

Beer bottle (75cl.) purchased from Bières & Chopes, and tasted in 2012.

Appearance : golden color, with white foamy head.
Smell : yeasty and fruity aromas.
Taste and mouthfeel : spicy and fruity notes, well balanced with alcohol presence.
Drinkability: a good beer in the style Belgian Triple.
The name "Silvanecte" comes from a celt tribal, who mastered the culture of barley.

A beautiful clear gold color, with a mountainous creamy head on top that settles into a lumpy one finger cap. Retention and lacing are both well above average. On the second pour from the bomber, some yeast gets into the mix and it turns a bright cloudy orange.

Dominantly fruity nose, with some nice spice, and a hint of fusel alcohol. Apricots, over ripe peaches, and a slightly vinous white wine grape smell. White pepper, and a soft hay-like, floral hop background.

Stone fruit and spices like the nose, very Belgian with some medicinal bitterness in the back. Definitely some peppery bite from the fusel alcohol, which gets to be a bit too boozy as the beer warms up. Some of the spice, or maybe the hops, is almost funky, like wet hay warming up in the summer sun after a rain.

Moderate body with good carbonation to cut through the booze which becomes almost a bit too much as it warms up. Just a touch too much moderation in the body, or rather in the grain flavor.

Overall another great beer from St. Rieul. All the individual characteristics are quite good on their own, but namely because of the booze the overall drinkability suffers. One of the best French breweries I've found in my time here. This is a very solid tripel, which stands up to the Belgians. Three things that would improve it to my tastes: tone down the boozy character, balance the nose/flavor a touch away from the fruit and towards the spice, add a little more to the malt bill to stand up to the considerable character of the beer.
