Bottle: interesting stumpy llittle brown bottle, with a stylish old-school Belgian label. Reaks of quality.

Appearance: a hazy yellow body with a foamy head that drops quickly to a one-finger off-white with good retention.

Aroma: sweet malts with citric fruits and a definite yeast backing. No hint of alcohol considering the ABV.

Taste: again quite soft considering the ABV - a smooth and creamy honey-malt followed by the lemon citric flavours, all backed by the Belgian yeasts. Quite impressive.

Aftertaste: lingers quite well indeed - that yeast is wonderfully rounded in the mouth. Definitely a sipper, which is fortunate considering the cost per bottle.

Mouth feel: medium in body with fine carbonation that allows one to savour the flavour.

Overall: a great example of Belgian strong ales. Definitely worth having when the bank balance will allow.

Straw color with a thin white head. The St. Veil lien glass with the etched bottom kept the head on the beer. Classic Belgian beer aroma. A nice clean malt flavor with little to no bitterness. Well carbonated, plenty of carbonation as the beer rolls across the palate. A full bodied beer with a lingering malt finish.

This is a classic Belgian blonde beer that I would strongly recommend to first time Belgian beer drinkers.

exp: 8/26/2014
A: Slightly darker than an AAL, with a massive amount of rising carbonation. Barely poured the glass half foam.
S: High quality soap. Floral
T: Warm but subtle hops. Warm malt, apple, floral with a bit of tang. Grassy.
M: A bit drying with a light to medium body and a light but sharp sting.
O: Pretty good. Different for a blonde

Another Belgian Blonde, why? Because Blondes have more fun! Today's St Feuillien hopefully won't have those askew characters noted in Brune and be a delightful dip into the world of Abbey ales, fingers crossed!

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a St Feuillien chalice.

A: The body presents a nice cloudy flaxen blonde (borders on straw) with a chalky 0.5cm head that invites the first sip.

S: Bubble-gum, tart apple characters are noted straight away. There is a slight sourdough yeast in the body, along with candi sugar and a hint of malt grains. It's quite pleasant with that overlay of fruit aromas drawing one in.

T: Straight out the gates with a bang goes this blonde - immediately assailing the taste buds with sharp citrus, spicy pepper and tart apples. The bold statement is backed up by a candi sugar, malt and yeast body and it finishes off with a twist of hop bitterness at the end. Alcohol is reasonably well hidden behind that candi sugar hit. Big flavours in a small glass, it may be too big for some.

M: Dense carbonation with a touch of aggression. The body is spot on mid-heavy for a Belgian blonde.

D: So far it's been an average at best dubbel brune and a real corker of a blonde, can't wait to try the triple now. As for the blonde, the bold flavour statement may be a little too crass and barnyardy, but if you're like me (and you know you are!) then it's just the beer ticket out of Mundanetown - population: a bunch of losers.

Food match: It's a bit of a dessert affair (which is anyone's game), but I could see it match with some more exotic fare like; roast pheasant with greens, potatoes and sauce. Or even more exotic; a Bison Tetrazzini, or some Aussie cuisine; Kangaroo Fillet with Cream Sauce, sounds good.

Had this beer, here and there in Europe and the USA. I see it rarely so I jump on it when I happen upon it.
Has a very unique taste. I'm thinking I could pick out this beer in any blind taste test..(only the Grand Cru, of this beer might fool me because it has a very similar taste---but higher in alc).
I love the look and the zest of this beer.
A nice sparkling gold color with a healthy Belgian head and tasting on the lighter side, but still packing a 7.5 abv. A good summer beer, tho it's good anytime for me.
Btw---I love that label!

A: Pours a hazy yellow with two fingers of white head that fades into a cap with great lacing.

S: Light spice notes up front with some sweet fruits. Light yeasty notes bring up the finish.

T: Spices notes up front with a lot of bready characters with some dry yeast notes as well. There are some slightly tart fruit notes as well.

M: Medium-light body with highish carbonation, this beer is is nice and dry.

O: An alright beer overall, though a bit bland and lacking depth. It has a nice body, but is just boring.

Poured into a St. Feuillien goblet...

Beautiful in the glass... Golden and beautiful with a nice fluffy head....

Lots of spicy yeastiness present in the aromas as well as a little bit of apple peel... Maybe some Belgian sugars.... this may be a little barnyard-ish as well...

There's a barnyard yeastiness to this that I don't find in others of the style and I like it. It almost gives it a saison feel to it. Very earthy and sort of funky... There's a sweetness here too but the majority of what I get from this is this earthy funkiness that just reeks of natural fermentation... Very delicious and I don't detect any booze at all...

A delicious example of the style... I really enjoyed this beer... Paired beautifully with some Pad Thai and a bowl of hot and sour soup
