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.

750 ml bottle into signature chalice, best by 10/28/2012. Pours cloudy golden amber color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice spotty lacing on the glass, with a good amount of carbonation streaming up retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange zest, apple, pear, herbal, floral, bread, earth, pepper, clove, coriander, grass, and yeast spiciness. Very nice and well balanced aromas with good complexity. Taste of pear, lemon, apple, apricot, pepper, bread, earth, herbal, coriander, floral, grass, honey, and yeast spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, herbal, bread, grass, pepper, earth, and yeast spices on the finish for a good bit. Nice flavor balance and complexity; and no cloying sweetness. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a fairly creamy and very crisp mouthfeel. Alcohol is very well hidden with pretty much no warming noticed at all after the finish. Very smooth to sip on. Overall this is an excellent tripel. Very nice fruity/peppery flavor balance with very nice complexity. Very enjoyable and smooth to sip on.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.

A real nice crystal brassy gold color, straight see through, with a real nice middle column of rising carbonation curling up the middle. White soapy but very even head, lots of lacing and staying power with good retention.

Wonderful nose on this beer. Sweet cumin/cardamom and clove spices. Candied sensations mix with this great dry spice sensation, just wonderfully. I love this smell, never had a tripel smell like this ever it's magic. OOO I know what that is, It's POPPYSEEDS! a little hint of anise also. It's a wonderful pound cake bread smelling sweet bakery goodness.

Taste hits all the right notes from the nose. Dry airy bread and yeast and a wonderful baked POPPYSEEDS sweetness. Great crisp dry wine like feeling in the palate, playful carbonation. Mouthfeel feels just about fine and right, nothing spectacular, but coats well.

Overall I am really liking this one, really loving the bouquet on this more than anything. Excellent tripel.

Part of a boxed set I bought recently...

Big yeasty aromas right up front that mingle with this spearmint thing that has me intrigued... I don't think I've ever gotten spearmint out of a tripel before so I'm interested...

The spearmint doesn't really show up in the flavors of the beer but what does show up is this lovely blend of yeast and cinnamon and sweetness that melds great together... A delicious example of a tripel... Small hints of booze here and there but for the most part, this is eminently drinkable...

A good tripel that I enjoyed quite a bit...

330ml bottle, poured into Leffe chalice, pale amber colour, large foamy head, could pass for a Hefeweizen. Yeasty aroma, some orange. Had an initial yeasty orange taste, booze well hidden at the start but came through towards the end, mouthfull was initially smooth but got more coarse, carbonation seemed to liven up the more I drank. Overall an interesting Triple that I'll explore further.

Nice bright, clean Triple. Lots of fruit forward flavors. Clean and well defined head. Very good for a traditional Belgian Triple!

This is very comparable to an Affligem Triple or other lighter Triple's from Belgium. I also really like their Saison. Good job!

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.
