Third beer in its own glass from the Better Beer Society event. I've had the St. Feuillien Triple on a couple of occasions, but really enjoying this one tonight.

Fluffy snow white head sits on top of a hazy orange beer. Assertive, yeasty nose with tons of lemon zest, orange, citrus on top of a light spice. Carbonation bite emphasizes the fruit and yeast, and it punches through a sweet malt. Light on the tongue but not thin. A real pleasure to drink, so St. Feuillien may have just moved up the list for this summer's trip to Belgium.

Pours hazy amber with very large, lasting head.
Nose shows doughy yeast, spicy Belgian phenols, pears, apples, bready malt and spicy hops.
Similar flavours, bready malt, doughy yeast, light fruit and spicy notes. Some solvent-like alcohol becomes apparent later but is not too intrusive.
Carbonation is perhaps a little over-enthusiastic.

A: Pours a slightly hazy straw-yellow with four fingers of white head that recedes into a dense cap with decent lacing.

S: Belgian spice notes up front followed by notes of bubblegum and candy sugar. Aromas of light fruits such as pears and grapes follow faint notes of sweet breads towards the finish.

T: Similar to the aroma, Belgian spices are present at first followed by notes of candy sugar and bubblegum. Light fruit flavors follow, but they're more subtle here, with a finish of sweet breads and yeast. There is a slight alcohol presence.

M: Light body with mid-high carbonation, this beer is nicely attenuated, though the slight alcohol presence keeps it from being as light and crisp as the best tripels.

O: A good tripel, overall. I'd like a bit more depth of flavor and aroma, but it's still very nicely done and drinkable.

On-tap at Prime 16.

A: Cloudy hay-colored body with a thin cap of white froth. Not much in the way of retention or lacing. Pretty disappointing for a style that's often spectacular.

S: Very spicy, almost minty. Lots of clove, and a bit of herbal hops. Clean, piquant, and pleasant.

T: Everything from the nose, plus some pleasantly toasty malt. Spicy up front, malty in the middle, and bittersweet/boozy on the finish. Tasty, but a little uninspired.

M: Creamy, lively, and soft. Perfect for the style.

O: Good, not great Tripel. I probably won't bother to order it again since there are so many better ones, but it's well worth a try (especially if you like your Tripels on the dry, spicy side of things).

Cheers!

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.

Appearance is golden and cloudy with a decent head if poured correctly.

Aroma is citrus and a bit of spice.

Taste is a mix of fruits, spicy hops, pepper, and I also get a faint taste of wild mint leaf.

Overall this is a solid Belgian triple ale. Light enough to have more than one, but enough abv to sip, and enough flavor to enjoy. Cheers!

750ml into a tulip glass. Poured a hazy straw dull yellow. Huge frothy head subsides quickly, Fair lacing. Heavy carbonation

Aroma is bright with yeast and plentiful fruits and citrus.

Taste is a delicate walk between the sweet and tangy
very nice dry finish

Overall a good solid triple

11.2 oz bottle poured into a goblib

Appearance is a hazy medium gold with a pillowy white head that settles down into a nice cap on top of the beer.

Smell is quite spicy with citrus and bready notes. Lemon is quite predominate along with some yeastyness.

Flavor is quite heavy on the citrus with lemon and perhaps lime. Also somewhat peppery. The yeast is definitely present along with some bready flavors. Really there is a good deal going on. A bit of alcohol becomes noticeable towards the finish.

Overall this is a pretty solid tripel. There is nothing that really stands out but also nothing to detract. It's good all around.
