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.

750ml into a tulip glass. Poured a hazy straw dull yellow. Huge frothy head subsides quickly, Fair lacing. Heavy carbonation

Aroma is bright with yeast and plentiful fruits and citrus.

Taste is a delicate walk between the sweet and tangy
very nice dry finish

Overall a good solid triple

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

11.2 oz bottle poured into a goblib

Appearance is a hazy medium gold with a pillowy white head that settles down into a nice cap on top of the beer.

Smell is quite spicy with citrus and bready notes. Lemon is quite predominate along with some yeastyness.

Flavor is quite heavy on the citrus with lemon and perhaps lime. Also somewhat peppery. The yeast is definitely present along with some bready flavors. Really there is a good deal going on. A bit of alcohol becomes noticeable towards the finish.

Overall this is a pretty solid tripel. There is nothing that really stands out but also nothing to detract. It's good all around.

This is a quite straightforward triple, but...one of the best in this style.

L: couldn't be better, clear, golden colour, huge triple top;
S: spicy, spinach, bread, hops.
T: original combination of a tiny liquorice, followed by soft hops, ending slightly bitterish; at the background the Walonian spices;
M: really great, perfect alcohol, slight bitterishness, full mouthfeel;
O: as I said: one of the best!

Cloudy overly odd looking beer....a lot is going on here that the snobs of yeast aren't for ad me ok with big yeast is kind unimpressed. Head didn't work as well for me as others claim.

The nose is apples, pears, and spices...a lot of them. A bit of nice hops and flavor.

The body is over carbonated!!! But nothing new. Thick body but doesn't feel creamy as I like

A touch too hot...maybe way hot by some views.

I don't dislike this one either. This brewer seems to not screw up the styles or make them overly boring but they seems to miss things.

Bottle from Cora-Forbach. Pours clear golden with towering head. Nice bitter sourness in the flavor right up front. A great example of the style. tasty.

I was surprised to see vitamin C listed amongst the ingredients. So if I'll be taking a vitamin C supplement I might take St. Feuillien instead?

Pours effervescent, slightly hazed golden body with streams of uprising carbonation, topped by compact white head that holds well and leaves firm lace about the glass.
Aroma is reigned by clove phenols with subdued citrusy-applish esters and floral hops. Alcohol is well hidden and shows up only as it warms.
Creamy on the palate; The flavor is hugely phenolic i.e.clove-like and somewhat spicy with medium finish and lightly bitter aftertaste. Overall, decent, but nothing more than that.

(Best before 08-17-2012, 330 ml into tulip)
