St. Feuillien TripleSt. Feuillien Triple
Notes: This beer has a white, smooth and very compact head. Its pale amber colour is very characteristic revealing a distinctive maltiness. It has a rich aroma with a unique combination of aromatic hops, spices and the typical bouquet of fermentation – very fruity. Secondary fermentation in the bottle gives it a unique aroma due to the presence of yeast. St-Feuillien Triple has a very strong and exceptionally lingering taste thanks to its density and its long storage period. Whether served as a refreshing aperitif in summer or savoured during the winter months, the Triple is a connoisseur’s beer par excellence.

11.20oz brown bottle. Label is marked for bottling date as '19/03/2021'.
Partly cloudy, pale gold colored body with circulating particles. Big white foam head; took three pours to empty the bottle. Leaves partial sheets of lacing.
Aroma of lightly toasted malts, fruit like apricot and apple, and yeast esters. Not overly strong.
Taste is strong from the fruit and from the yeast. Fruit expressions of apple, pear, and apricot. Big spice, like coriander, from shortly in until the end. Belgian yeast is slightly sour. Good malt undertones. Tangy in the aftertaste.
Silky thickness for mouth feel. Quite dry. Excellent carbonation.
Backed by the malts, the taste is fruit and yeast dominated. Old world beer making. So complex but yet not unapproachable.

Poured a 330ml bottle into a chalice. A two finger fine white head on a slightly hazy lemon. Excellent head retention. Lots of lacing.
Spicy smell. Some esters.
Fruity taste. slight hop finish.
Moderate body and carbonation.
Very smooth and balanced.

L: Straw wheat. Cloudy. Plenty of head. Bottle conditioned. Extremely active, probably want to open this off the chill.

S: Nice. Wheat with a twang to it, perhaps a fancy Belgian fermentation process. A bit of like, coriander, pepper, orange peel? It's spicy and enticing. Reminds me a bit of Ayinger Brauweiss.

T: So bitter. Plenty of hops, St Feuillien does a good job with that usually. The grains are handled excellently. This is definitely top shelf stuff, and it even tastes great.

F: The grains are just melting in my mouth. It's very easy to drink given that it's 8.5%

O: The first time I've genuinely enjoyed a tripel.

330 mL bottle from the LCBO, one of three beers included in a St. Feuillien mixed pack (in addition to their Quad and Cuvée De Noël). Best before Apr 26 2022 and served barely chilled.

Pours bright golden yellow with just a little bit of fogginess in its relatively clear complexion. More than two fingers of fluffy, foamy white head erupts from the surface before gradually settling off; it requires the better part of ten minutes, but I'm eventually left with a thin, sudsy cap and creamy collar. Beautiful strands of delicate lacing are also left behind; looks elegant, like you'd expect of a tripel. The aroma is subtle but nuanced - grainy pale malts, grassy, floral hops, appleskin, pear and lemony citrus, with suggestions of apricot, orange peel and yeast spiciness.

A very personable, balanced Belgian pale - I'm tasting grainy pale malts and light bready sweetness, mingling together with fruity esters of apple, pear, apricot and green banana. Spicier towards the finish, with clove and pepper as well as some grassy, lightly floral hops preceding a sweet-ish aftertaste that trends off-dry. The 8.5% is sort of discernible, but it's also extremely well-integrated. Medium-full in body, with fairly assertive carbonation that feels prickly on the palate, giving this brew a good bite - feels smooth and pleasing on the tongue. A delight to sip.

Final Grade: 4.13, an impressive A-. Tripels are one of my favourite styles, so it's a real shame that I don't get to try new ones very often. St. Feuillien's Triple isn't one of the best Belgian-sourced examples IMO, but it's still a complex and satisfying feast for the senses that you'd be silly to pass on. I'd really like to try this side by side with their Grand Cru, a similar beer that I recall enjoying immensely when I reviewed it a few years back.

L- Mid straw yellow, very slight haze. Pours with thin white head.
S- Bready, woody, hints of spice.
T- That lovely medium-dry deep and solid intricateness that goes on and on. Hints of say coriander pop up but it and others are subtle within the whole.
F- Feels like a solid beer, with an over-riding sense of spiciness.
O- Would go well in winter, but being quite light on the malts/roasting is versatile.

Poured from cellar temp. Pours a nice transparent golden yellow with LOTS of white head. Nose is toffee, hops, mint, clove, apples. Taste is really interesting. A tad bitter upfront, but sweet on the back end for me. Some nice grapes, apples, and a touch of citrus. Still picking up mint and clove on the aftertaste. Super smooth beer with some nice earthy malts.

Picked a bottle up from Marty's in Newton. Beautiful thick head remained throughout. Might have skunked though, flavor a bit off. Need to try again.

Pours thick, foamy head along with highly carbonated light gold color. Malt, spice and sweet all the way in both taste and aroma with a peppery finish. Light, crisp tasting for 8.5% alcohol content. Everything balances out nicely.

A bargain at 8 at Rattle N Hum NYC. _ A must try brew pub with empty tables for 6.
A) Lofts white, smooth and compact head. over hazy,. pale amber body - all last and lace.
S) Spice first then hops, followed by fruity yeast,.
T) All of the above in tight, balanced package.
F) Feel is superior due to long bottle fermentation.
O) Loved it and would blind taste with all other Tripels.

Pours a clear golden color with a medium top of white head that dissolves quickly. Aroma is of yeast,light bread, apples, apricots, banana, pears,citrus, herbs,peppercorn and floral hops. The flavour is sweet and fruity with dry and spicy notes and some light bready tones in the back. The finish has a slight bitterness with some floral notes and the aftertaste has a good lenght. A little to sweet but else the balance is good. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel with a medium carbonation and a medium body.
A great and enjoyable triple, but it lacks that little extra to put it with the best.

Different, but not my cup of tea. When I get a tripel, I'm in the mood for sweet, fruity and smooth. This is a bit bitter, fruity, yes, but dry too. It's like a Sapporo mixed with a tripel. Interesting, but again, not my cup of tea.

330ml bottle from Carrefour, Brussels (£1.35):
This one was a very nice triple with a pleasant sweetness in the early going from the banana before some nice floral flavours & spices started to come through alongside some nice yeast & touches of alcohol. It was very well balanced & quite easy to drink despite the strength with some bread & pale malts with a little apple & pear in there too. Perhaps not a beer that hits the heights of Westmalle Tripel but it's not too far off it either.

Clearly on the light and airy end of the tripel spectrum, and this beer does it well. Lemon grass, floral and spices like clove and pepper fill the nose, with a hint of orange rind. The taste presents a yeast forward complexion that rushes upward to a light finish with lemon and flowers, almost rose like. Very well balanced, yet buttery light.

This one has a lighter nose and less complex flavor than the Blonde Ale. Still it is very good. I get tangerines with a flash of orange blossom honey over pale malt and then well balanced hop bitterness fading into the finish. The hops and a complimentary floral and bitter orange peel flavor.

The beer pours a hazed straw gold with a half inch foamy snow white cap that lasts throughout. The aroma is honey, yeast, sweet fruits, and grains. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with above-average carbonation. The flavour is sweet malt, light pepper notes, citrus, honey, and yeast.
