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.

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.

A-a clear golden yellow with three wingers worth of white rocky head

S-pale malt, citrus, some floral notes, spices, and yeast

T-taste is similar to the smell with a pale malt backbone, sweet fruit, peppery spice, light bitterness, and Belgian yeast

M-medium body, medium to high prickly carbonation, very smooth

Overall this is a very drinkable Tripel, not too sweet which can happen with some beers of the style. Really good.

My second beer from St. Feuillien after the saison. Pretty excited as I did enjoy the saison offering and found it to be pretty satisfying.

Appearance is pretty spot on and just what I expect and want from a nice Belgian triple. It has a really good fluffy, very slight off white head. A rich gold color with plenty of bubbly traces and a slight orange hew.

The smell is soft, but offers up hints of banana and clove, subtle spice and citrus peel scent, with a mellow yeast overtone. There is a bit of a malt hint which is kind of... unusual. Don't really know what to think of it.

The taste is surprisingly pronounced in comparison to the smell. Lots of spices to the middle and back. Has a pleasant sweet beginning with a bit of that odd malt that came off in the nose. The banana comes in with a cream taste and a bit of yeast, and then the spice and yeast explode and dry off gradually but pronounced at the end with a hint of herbal hops. There is a mineral sort of a taste to it which I enjoy quite a bit and offsets the fruit esters that are going on with this beer. The mineral taste kind of lingers, very interesting and helps puts a foundation to the beer in my opinion.

Mouthfeel is spot on! Carbonation is great! This beer is so easy to drink it is ridiculous and the booze hardly show. It's quite clean, it's perfectly dry with the perfect amount of sweetness and spice that tingles on the tongue. I would buy this beer again simply for how the flavors and mouthfeel come together. What I consider a perfect example of a Belgian triple in this regard.

Overall, and excellent triple. The malt throws me for a bit of a loop with the banana and fruit esters. The malt confuses me. And it kind of makes it a bit hard to read. But, otherwise, this is a really fine triple. I actually enjoy this more than I remember enjoying the saison. Definitely worth at least a try. The only thing bad that can come out of this is becoming a bit addicted to it... which all in all isn't that bad.
