Well, i don't know why this beer got such bad marks... gotta say this one is the best beer i've drunk so far...
Went to the best beer pub in town and tried this one after a Paulaner Oktoberfest (unusual but nice match) and... perfection !!! Perfection !!! A godamned smooth beer, superb in every way. The taste was the best i've tried, the flavor and smell were so fruity, so nice and rich, and so on... do you know when something connects perfectly with your personal taste ? Thst's what happened here... hope this can happen several times more...

Had on draft @ The Trappist in Oakland, CA.

Beer poured a rich golden honey-amber.

Nose was much akin to the smell of fresh baked sweet breads.

Taste was very complex I almost have a hard time describing how good this was. It starts out with a slight spiced flavor, followed with a taste reminiscent of apples or a hand picked summer pear, finally finishing with the magnificent flavor common to a good Belgian ale.

Overall mouthfeel was excellent, highly drinkable, on a slight but not overly thick side.

So far this beer is my favorite Belgian tripel. I have yet to have anything made by Brasserie St. Feullien that I haven't liked. I hope to someday visit them on a trip to Belgium. If you haven't had this beer I strongly recommend it.

4.83/5  rDev +21.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from the 750ml caged and corked bottle into a standard pint glass (I really need to wash my Belgian glasses)

Beer pours lightly hazed and golden with yeast sediment swimming about just looking for anything else to ferment. Head is solid with large soft bubbles that gradually fade in the glass. Lacing is healthy on the sides but not overboard. This is very impressive on appearance if nothing else.

Smell- Well, it's impressive on something else. Light citrus and white pepper, light 2 row Belgian pilsner malts, the yeast is very impressive, light and fluffy but light fruits linger in there as well. I hate using the term complex because it doesn't really describe anything, but it's the best I can come up with at this point in time.

Taste- Creamy and spicy at the same time, fruity and soft on the tongue. The white pepper flavor comes right through, none of that over sweet candi taste that frequently comes through in Tripels. Super light hop presence that provides an excellent balance. Honestly, this may be the most solid Tripel I have ever tasted, and I'm very pleasantly surprised.

Mouthfeel- Lightly sticky, but not overly, highly carbonated, very smooth, creamy, and medium light bodied.

Drinkability- For a tripel I have a feeling you will have a hard time finding anything smoother. Not warming for the gravity. Very enjoyable.

750 ml (Brazil here) bootle. Great lable, cork top.
Colour is amber/deep gold. Smell is (sorry if I seem too excited) just GREAT! Fruit notes, a little tobbacco, hops, awesome head. Taste is deep, takes fullmouth; again fruitlike notes, alcohol is barely noticed (8,50 %). Mouthfeel is long and smooth with hops still kicking in. Drinkability, as said before, is great; you don't notice it's an 8,5% beer. I'm very impressed by this one for its overall presentation. Cheers!

1 Pint, 9.4 Fl oz bottle copped from Buy Rite on Oak Tree in South Plainfield for $8.99...
My first opinion about this one is that this must be one of the most underrated, and ignored best Belgian Tripels I have ever come across...
Overall, this is an excellent depiction of the style and one of the best Tripels I have ever sampled, period...
Pours a light, amber hue with rising carbonation coupled with an extensive foamy and frothy head that just lingered on, refusing to subside...
Strong and rich malty aroma bursting with citrus, fresh florals,creamy vanilla, honey and lemons...
Taste was remarkably assertive and powerful, with fresh flavor immensely visible... Strong suggestions of coriander, lemons, spices, fresh fruit, florals, pears, apples, and grapefuit combine to produce a teriffic representation of the style, very authentic and rich...
Exceptional creamy and thick mouthfeel without the slightest hindrance of any alcohol presence...
Excellent drinkability as well without any interfering factors...
Excellent stuff... Definitely recommended...

Presentation- 750ml bottle, garage cooler 2 days.

A-Cloudy golden pour. Large two inch head that leaves plenty of legs.

Smell- Mulitple bouquet of flavors overpowering into simply sweet smooth explanation.

Taste-Tangy and spicy but corriander in origin.

Mouthfeel- Higher carbonation than expected

Drinkability- Heavier than expected from original pour and first quafs. Gets better as you move down the glass.

look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours semi-cloudy light copper color. The head is thick to start out but eventually tames down to a nice layer. The aroma is very abundant. I could smell it when it was sitting on the table in front of me and smells of ester and malts. The mouthfeel is very smooth, but you can sense the presence of the high alcohol. The was a slight burn going down the throat, but not bad. The taste is just unbelievable. It is very malty and moderately hoppy and the alcohol lingers in the mouth. It kinda hard to improve on this beer, because tripels don't get much better than this.

A: Beautiful golden with foamy 1-finger head that lingers and leaves some crazy lace formations on the glass.

S: Pears and bananas nut are most readily apparent with a lot of bready malt and fruity yeast.

T: A delicious brew with strong fruity flavors of pear, apple, and green raisins(maybe)? and finished with a prominent alcohol warmth and fruitiness.Maltiness

M: The feel is excellent with fine carbonation lending a creaminess that is top-tier and a clean scrubbing finish with the right balance of crispness and aftertaste.

D: An fine tripel with classic light fruit flavors mixed artfully with maybe a nutmeg or banana nut spice and a top-notch mouthfeel compose a very good brew.

From corked bottle.
Served in tall St Feuillien Grand Cru beer flute.
Aroma of sweet malts, purple queen magnolia flowers, and field grains.
Significant carbonation and mouthfeel.
Flavors of bitter funky fruits, candy sugar, rosemary and similar herbs, chardonnay white wine...ooh, better give this a few minutes...
Ah...still a small head and lace, bright floral aromas, and the taste has smoothed out...oh yes, a few minutes to let this breath is well worth the time. While there's still a small bitter bite, this has overall mellowed out into a lovely triple...rich but not offensive, flavorful but not too complex, sweet, floral or spicy.
I'll admit I've been to this brewery and pretty much love the whole line-up. The beers have a great balance and the yeast is wonderful in that there's really no offensive esters...similar to St Bernardus, Val-Dieu and Allagash.

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.
