Not a bad example of a tripel at all. Pours with a good head and leaves a nice leg. The smell is fruity and crisp with little lasting aroma. Very fresh on the pallate with a nice lingering taste that ties in perfectly with a fresh sip. Overall a good addition to any collection and a great way to introduce the uninitiated to this style.

Pours a hazy orange color with an awesome big fluffy head,aroma is spicey and very orange-like.I get a clove taste and aroma from this brew along with a light smokiness likely from the yeast,a light pepper taste lingers on the tongue,I have to say this was a great fing the alcohal is not at all prevelant making this to easy to drink,very very nice.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance – This one poured a light, brilliant orange in color and was clear with a tremendous amount of gushing carbonation. The head was a cool-looking off-white mound of foam that would have stayed up all night.

Smell – This aroma is very balanced. The raw yeast was right on queue and mixed perfectly with some wonderful tangerine. The spicing was mild, mostly coriander, but mixed well with the other characteristics of the nose.

Taste – Wow! The orange flavors here are not cheap as they are with many pretenders of the style. This is not the candy orange lollipop flavor so common these days. This is clean, refreshing, naturally-squeezed orange juice. The yeast, which so often backs down at the taste, held up strong. The delicate spices evened things out.

Mouthfeel – This is bigger than medium in the body with some terrific carbonation. It is brilliantly blended.

Drinkability – This is my idea of an Abbey Tripel. I could have drunk this all night. What a treat.

St. Feuillien Triple

A- Pours a yellow-orange fluid with massive white head that very slowly falls around the rim leaving heavy foamy lacing on side of glass.
Obvious Carbonation thoughout beer.

S- Smell is of white wine, sweet sugar alcohol esters, and white bread.

T-M- Quite smooth flavor with a yeasty start. Flavors consist of heavily bland yeast and wheat and alcohol esters. Thick bready feel on the tongue with mild sting for the alcohol bite.

D- Not the best but worth tring. This beer has the mainstream taste and feel of a triple but lacks the flavors to make it a real winner.

Poured out a dark amber color, very nice! Came out with a beige, cake-like head that reduced down nicely to about one finger of fluffyness. The bottle is 11.2oz size. Scents of caramel and of metal. A little bit overly carbinated for me. It just foams up in your mouth a bit too much to feel comfortable.... Taste is one-dimensional, but there is a taste of vanilla extract. Decent triple with good drinkability.

750mL cork and caged bottle poured into chalice.

Wonderful golden color with a pillowy white head that retreated and left a solid lacing. Yeasty, clove, banana, and other spices make up the aroma. Taste has a fruitiness to it with banana and clove, very good, almost perfectly put together. Average carbonation and medium to full body. Very drinkable, not one I would have very often, but is great when I do have it I will cherish it.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Serving glass: Poured from tap into proper St, Feuillien mini-snifter.

Appearance: Hazy honey with decent cream colored head.

Smell: No idea what this smells like. Oddly sweet with strange spices and herbs.

Taste: Oh God, it tastes like it smells, so I guess I have to try harder to describe it. Sticky, semi-rotten fruit at the core, with a cornucopia of spice flavors, including rosemary, clove, lavender, and licorice. Light banana. Beyond weird.

Feel: Moderately high carbonation, with a relatively light body. Semi-dry.

Overall: Simply a very strange Tripel that I mostly enjoyed despite my inability to describe it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Executive Summary: The bottle says this is "highly recommended for gourmet taste." While not quite Arrogant Bastard, it's pretty haughty. Thought that was worth noting. The beer itself? It's not bad - I enjoyed it - it's just not a standout.

Appearance: Pours a fairly fizzy straw golden color into my tulip. Bubbles in the head are somewhat larger than that to which I'm accustomed. Head itself is pretty robust and is a shade off of white.

Smell: Typical tripel here...pilsener malts, banana/clove notes from the yeast. Some spiciness here as well.

Taste: More alcohol in on the palate than I've seen in many tripels - it usually plays more of a supporting role. Definitely spicy, too. Initial malt flavor is subdued; instead, you get the last fleeting moments of sweetness, followed quickly by the Styrian Golding-like hops and that noticeable alcohol. The aforementioned spiciness lingers in your throat as well.

Mouthfeel: A little too much carbonation for me, but I recognize Belgians - Tripels especially - can be a little juiced up on this aspect. The hyperbubble also serves to jack up the perceived spiciness as well.

Drinkability: It's a pretty accessible tripel (regardless of what the label says). It's got enough nice flavors to keep me interested long enough to finish the bottle, but I wouldn't make a session out of it, even if I were going to stay in the style.

330 ml bottle with a bottled on date almost exactly 2 years past.

A: Pours cloudy, pale amber with a good, semi-durable head. Some sediment added in the pour but more left in the bottle.

Smells like a refined but yeasty/bready Belgian tripel. Mildly spicy.

Flavor: complex, with fruity, spicy and bready elements interweaving with very good balance.

Feel: lively carbonation in a crisp, near-medium body.

O: excellent tripel emphasizing fruity and peppery flavors.

(Served in a goblet)

A- This beer has a bright orange hazy body with a thin white ring of head around the rim.

S- The smell of perfume has notes of roses and pears in the background.

T- The smooth sweet light malt taste has notes of pears and apple juice with a faint pepper note in the finish. The very faint alcohol taste at the finish gives the pepper note a hint of green hop bitterness.

M- The light mouthfeel has a alcohol warmth and a fizz texture.

D- The light faint fruit notes are not very complex with a slightly sweet slightly bitter balance that washes out a lot of the complexity.

A recent addition to the small repertoire of beer here in Okie land. Thoughts of trying a new beer in the back of my mind all day at work, get home and pop the cork on a 750 mL bottle.

First thing noted was the high carbonation and the smell of estery hops, thin malts and a very slight citrus tang. Medium bodied and quite lively in ye 'ole mouth, quite pleasant. Hop flavors seemed just a bit out of whack, but overall a decent triple.

11.2 oz. bottle into a wine glass. No freshness or bottling date, but I know I bought this at least two years ago, and I'm holding this holds up.

Appearance: Golden yellow with little haze, but hardly any carbonation and no lacing. Too cold? Not sure what's going on, but doesn't look like a Tripel to me.

Smell: I get candi sugar, mild bananas, mild cream, and some yeast, but really nothing else. It's balanced yes, but if someone told me this was a domestic I would've believed them.

Taste: Again, balanced, with the candi sugar and mild banana and fruit flavors, with a sweet finish and not much mildness, which can become a bit sweet.

Mouthfeel: A bit too cloying without enough carbonation, making harder to get more of the flavors than I'd anticipated.

Drinkability: I suppose I should say that when I cracked open the bottle -- and later checked the cap after I'd consumed it -- there was an odd brown color, that of which I've never seen. Could that be oxidation? I'm not sure, but I know I wouldn't try this again. The bottle didn't explode or anything, and the taste wasn't peculiarly out of context or anything, but I have a feeling something may have happened to it as far as oxidation, but I'm not sure...
