BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brasserie St. Feuillien
Belgium
st-feuillien.com

Style: Tripel

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Enjoyed a 0.33l bottle (€5.80) at de Gouverneur in Maastricht on 22SEP16.

It was a bright golden bier, with lots of fine carbo swirling up. Had a creamy, 3/4", slightly off-white head which lasted well, with good lacing. Aroma was a bit bready with some tropical fruit and honey. Had a medium body, and was fairly smooth, with only minimal prickle.

Tasted a bit doughy, with more honey, some pear, green apple and a bit of lemon peel noted. Was more on the fruity side, with not too much in the way of any spicy character. Had a dry, slightly chalky finish. Solid.

Pours cloudy pale gold with a rocky head that lasts a while but doesn't muster up much lace. Bread, fruity, phenolic Belgian yeast esters and herbal hops in the aroma. The taste is doughy with honey and pear hints. Alcohol is immodest for the ABV, adding prickly spicyness. Some herbal, floral hops and light bitterness in the back. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a vigorous carbonation.

A decent Tripel, though a bit boozy and could be more lively in the hop department.

330 ml bottle served cold into a tulip. Purchased from the local LCBO for around $4 CDN.

Appearance - A gentle pour yielded a slightly hazy rich golden colored beer topped with two plus fingers of head. Some visible carbonation, but the head retention is impressive lasting a number of minutes and leaving some sticky lacing down the sides of the glass.

Smell - Light floral esters with little bits of fruits thrown in. There's perhaps a hint of lemon, but also some pear and possible other orchard fruits. It doesn't smell sweet though as there's a slightly dank and sour aroma that accompanies many of Belgium's finest.

Taste - Juicy fruit flavors a peach and pear combo are my initial reaction with some bitter earthy flavors coming in afterwards. Some harsh booziness, but that doesn't get in the way of the other flavors too much, some light grain and powdery yeast. Some pepper and or clove starts to play a factor after repeated sips.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated as expected for the style and a dry but not super dry finish. Body is light but the booze is definitely recognizable. Feels like a 8.5% ABV beer in the back of the throat.

Overall - While St. Feuillien's Triple isn't at the top of the totem pole, it is a solid beer that features many of the greatest features of a tripel, dry finish, some booziness and fine aromas of orchard fruit with just a hint of citrus. It doesn't have that one standout feature that elevates it to the level of a La FIn Du Monde or Westmalle Tripel, it nonetheless is fairly approachable and quite delicious, making this a worthy treat while it's in stock.

Purchased at the LCBO for $3.85 for a 330ml bottle. Served at 8deg C in a tulip

A- Opens well and pours a 1" high white head that is gone in a minute or two. Medium gold colour and filtered clear

S- Not a lot here. Metallic if anything.

T- Nice brew. I like the bready nature of this yeasty good beer. Low hops. Not a compliant but it is what it is. Nice shot would move up numbers some.

M- Nice and crisp going down then dries out

O- I like this brew. Glad I got a few more for later. Nice blend and mellow. Not pushy

Food Pairing

This nice brew went well with........ Homemade tomato sauce with chicken hearts on brown rice. Just a nice flavorful main. Cheap, hearty... no pun intended... and nutritious

Enjoy
