4.68/5 rDev +17.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Bottle: interesting stumpy llittle brown bottle, with a stylish old-school Belgian label. Reaks of quality.
Appearance: pours a cloudy / hazy amber gold with a limited yet thick and creamy off-white head. Very inviting.
Aroma: gorgeous golden fruits and spices, citrus and honey. Intriguing.
Taste: one can judge the quality of a tripel by the number of different flavours and the way in which those flavours resolve in the mouth. St Feullien's example has gorgeous golden fruits, sweet yeasts, warming spices and a hint of bubblegum and licorice. No one flavour is too overpowering, and the outcome is a beer that warrants one word: yum!
Aftertaste: some of the fruits - namely the apple and pear - and the cloves linger on for a good long while.
Mouth feel: light to moderate body, with a somewhat smooth and creamy feel. Light, prickling carbonation helps bring the flavour through.
Overall: a very good quality tripel - and I like tripels to start with. A great combination of flavours that resolve beautifully. One of the best beers I have had.

Served on tap in a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer is served a amber color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades rather fast, leaving a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is light overall with the heaviest of the smells being that of a yeasty and biscuit like aroma. Along with these aromas are some smells of a more floral and spicy nature with the spice being mainly of a clove and coriander.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit malt flavor mixed with a light level of yeastiness and spice. The spice is mainly of a coriander and clove nature with these flavors later being accentuated by some other spice flavors of a pepper and floral spice nature. Flavors of a more citrus nature come to the tongue as the taste advances with orange and tangerine coming to the tongue. Some floral and grassy hops come to the tongue more toward the end of the taste along with some flavors of banana and bubblegum, with the mix of flavors in the end, creating a moderately sweet, but very easy going smooth Belgian flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side for a triple with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. A slightly higher carbonation level may have been slightly better for the fruit flavors of the brew, but overall the feel was rather decent for the style.
Overall – A very easy drinking triple that hides the alcohol very well. Very inoffensive and rather refreshing and quite drinkable in light of its 8.5% abv. Nothing overly exceptional, but still rather enjoyable. A very neutral Belgian triple.

Another popular Belgian beer I seem to have not rated or reviewed, even though I'm sure I've drank it many times over the years: I can now put that right. 33cl Bottle on 3rd Feb 2014 in Cambrinus, Brugge.
Pale blonde body with a snow white head.
Spicy nose with yeast and floral hop base.
The taste followed in the same lines as the smells with a good fruity undertone that gives a semi-sweet and yet sour feel to the flavours.
Easy drinking triple with a deceptive alcohol level, it is a lot stronger than it tastes.
