My second offering at de Gouvereur in Maastricht on 22SEP16. A 0.33l bottle set me back €6.10.

This one threw me off a bit, as I was expecting something Quad-like, with the name Grand Cru. It was a clear, medium-golden brew, with aggressive carbo and a fine, mousse-like, off-white head. Foam started at 3/4" and had a slow ebb, with solid lace left behind. Smelled a touch bready and crackery with some mild tropical fruit. Medium body and medium feel; minimal prickle - minimal problems.

Taste followed the aroma, with crackery, bready malts and some light fruit action. Had a touch of honey, with some pear and apple present. Ended up enjoying it though I expected a Quad and not a BSPA.... Cheers!

This one really surprised me. Poured into an oversized wine glass, bottled July 2015. Upon opening the bottle, the fragrance / nose / aroma struck me immediately. One of the most fragrant (in a positive sense) beers I have had in awhile. Bubbly and effervescent. Now I need to find one that is a bit fresher for comparison. Am surprised the reviews are lower on this one than I would expect.

L: gives of golden orange color . cloudy. Nice top of head that disolves rapid . bubbly.

S: honey, yeast. Fruits like citrus,apples and apricot , burned sugar. A very fruity aroma.

T&F: start of with very fruity feeling, citrus and apples.very fresh mouthful. In the the middle I start sense more of the sweet yeast and the honey. Very rounded Inn the taste and the balance is great.the hops comes more Inn the ending and Inn the aftertaste.the aftertaste is a mix of sweet yeast and hops that have a mouthfeel that I liked and that lasted for a good time.

O: a delicious beer. Very drinkable and enjoyable. I sure going to try more beers from St. Feuillien. Recommend this one

Love this and deserves the grand cru. Try 24.

A: Pours a honey gold body with a white, creamy, fluffy head, decent amount of lacing, lots of carbonation, head lasted and remained covered to edge to edge in a broad tulip named Duvel. (Belgians always better looking that US versions).

A: Aromatic and subtle. Honey, grain, hay, Belgian yeast, earthy, apple orchard. Fall earth.

T: Follows aroma - honey, grain, earth, must, yeast, spice, sweet but peppered with finishing and lingering amount of bitterness, finish adds lemon, spice, pear, and honey, but dry.

M: Medium bodied mouthfeel, semi-dry finish, ample carbonation. Champagne like as in Duvel.

O: I score higher because this beer has lots of flavor and classic Belgian champagne like qualities.

I can’t add too much to the description listed for this beer, it’s spot on. Especially the part about how the first sip is one taste, and the next is different, and the third even better. Complex beer....

11.2 ounce bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a honey orange color with a white, creamy, fluffy head, decent amount of lacing, lots of carbonation, head lasted about 3-4 minutes.

A: Honey, grainy, hay, Belgian yeast, earthy, very aromatic, no alcohol at all on the nose, smells pretty solid.

T: Honey, grain, earth, must, yeasty flavors, some spice, moderate amount of bitterness, finish has hints of lemon, spice, and honey, very tasty.

M: Medium bodied mouthfeel, semi-dry finish, loads of carbonation.

O: I don't understand the low score given by some reviewers, this beer has lots of flavor, is very drinkable, and balanced, I did not regret taking a chance on this beer, will try to pick up a fresher bottle as this one was bottled on 05/02/2013.

First had poured from 11.2-oz. bottle, stamped produced on "12/03/2015" (which probably means March 12 rather than Dec. 3) into goblet. The high ABV is well-hidden in this very quaffable strong pale ale.

From elcervecero. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Sons of Anarchy 7x05. Hoppy, mostly fruity and also some herbaliness, like seems to be the trademark of st feuillien pales.This one is the best of them.
