Cloudy overly odd looking beer....a lot is going on here that the snobs of yeast aren't for ad me ok with big yeast is kind unimpressed. Head didn't work as well for me as others claim.

The nose is apples, pears, and spices...a lot of them. A bit of nice hops and flavor.

The body is over carbonated!!! But nothing new. Thick body but doesn't feel creamy as I like

A touch too hot...maybe way hot by some views.

I don't dislike this one either. This brewer seems to not screw up the styles or make them overly boring but they seems to miss things.

Blond cloudy with little foam that disappears quickly, smells a lot like european hops. Quite carbonated and I think citrus. Strong taste of hops, but still balanced. The alcohol is not too overwhelming in the mouth. Plain beer with few interesting notes: not bad, but I expected a lot more.

POP! went the cork on this bad boy – umm, can’t wait for the tripel. Bright golden yellow, smallish white head - sticky laces. But wait, aroma is somewhat weak, just some thin malts and floral appear. Oh no, what a subdued tasting – just hints of sweet malt instead of a rich & malty brew - no fruit either. Just a thin, over carbed soda pop. Crap, this was really disappointing – no wonder it’s retired.

Bought the St. Feuillien gift pack; came with the Blonde, Brune, and Triple.. as well as a pretty nice chalice.

Appearance: Poured this tripel into my newly acquired St. Feuillien chalice and observed it's pale amber, perhaps dull, chill hazed yellowish color and compact white head.

Smell: there's some hop spice, that yeasty Belgian bottle conditioned aroma, and maybe a bit of fruitiness.

Taste: Here's where it loses me; there's an unpleasant flavor that lingers at the very back of the tongue.. it's like a harsh, dry, phenolic taste that really brings this beer down. And the yeast doesn't really "pop" with pleasant esters like some of the better examples of this style.

Mouthfeel: the mouthfeel is what is to be expected; medium bodied, adequate carbonation.

Overall: Sorry, but this one doesn't really do it for me, and I usually always enjoy the tripel style. If you see this one on the shelves, I would suggest passing it over for La Fin Du Monde or Westmalle Tripel.

I was exited to try this beer, I saw it was high in the charts, but I am disappointed.

This beer pours a yellow orange beer with a crude head and some sticky foam.

Smell was ripe green apples, with some cork and a bit solvent.

Taste was corky and dry, almost like chewing a cork. Lots of solvent and banana, alcoholic. Body was pretty full at the beginning. After I got used to the solvent, I found this beer slightly oxidized and cardboard. I don't think I like this beer, it is too sharp and appears to be out of balance, over the top. Too bad.

A - A good amount of head that dissipated quickly leaving a hefty lacing down the sides of the glass. The beer itself is a clear rich golden brew.

S - Light malt and champagne grapes. Not a lot going on here, but it isn't unpleasant.

T - A faint hay flavor with a touch of dry maltiness and champagne grapes. Aftertaste is a faint bitterness with a bit of grassy hops and faint spicy white pepper.

M - Smooth, very thin, pretty refreshing.

D - Good, a bit too mild as I prefer a pronounced tripel.

Nose is slightly fruity, slightly green grapes, alcohol as well. Malty body, but also with grain alcohol, which is unfortunately still very present.

What is even stranger than this brewery's products are usually excellent compromise. Is detected here and there a friendly and hops on one side lemon (vitamin C probably) but it is unfortunately too little digestible for a standard.

Opened this 750 ml bottle with very high expectations, and poured it into a glass.

Poured a fairly light, straw yellow with a head that formed very nicely but didnt hang around for nearly as long as I had hoped it would and left literally no lacing. I gave it a 3 because it is average by my standards, but was very disappointed as I was expecting this to be a very high quality ale.

The smell gave me hints of some interesting fruits, but nothing to really balance it out. It almost smelled like wine, with definite hints of pears and some grapes. Fairly bland as far as belgian beers go.

The taste pretty much followed suit with the smell, although I could notice some nice maltiness which added a bit to the overall flavor and made the taste definitely a step up from the smell. It was very hard for me to notice any hops at all.

Honestly, if you put this into a bud light bottle im sure I would have said it was incredible. I had just heard a number of great things about this beer, and found it to be fairly standrad as far as Belgian beers go.
