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.

L - Hazy yellow with a fat white head

S - Herbal and estery notes

T - Herbal hops, menthol, pear, pepper, yeast, sweet and a bit tart

F - Dry mouthfeel, fine carbonation

O - A good tripel, refreshing, a bit much on the spice and herbal side maybe. Not as fruity as some of the best ones

I rate this better than the average Tripel, a style I like and sample often (perhaps more often than I should, given its strength.)
While St. Feullien's Tripel looks and smells about average; but really is not indicative of what is to come. This Triple's Taste and Feel are greatly boosted by how its softness and sweetness combine. A fine yeast clearly is at work here, but there is something else as yet unknown to me.

Reviewed in the "1001 Beers", it probably deserves to be on the list... but certainly has competition.

MJ's "Great Beers of Belgium" goes on almost for two pages about St. Feuillien, its family ownership, its history and ales... an unusually long review for a brewery with only 4 beers. The only review of the Tripel is the caption under the pretty proprietess who helps run the brewery: "Dominique, a peachy blonde" (he's referring to the ale, but adding some intrigue), "a more recent addition is a perfumey, honeyish Tripel."

A beautifully delicious triple. The colour, the head, the nose and most importantly the taste, is up there with the very best. If you try just one beer in this style, you can't go wrong with this.

From elcervecero. In La Trappe chalice. Playing Millenium 2. It has some odd herbal-spicy taste, like in their blonde. At first I wasnt sure if I liked it, but in the end I think that yes

Poured from a 33 cl. bottle to a tulip glass. Bought at Carrefour in Brussels.
-Superb golden orange color. Big foam head that looks very nice, too. Lots of carbonation bubbles.
-Citric smell. It reminds me to Champagne. Freshness can be fealed.
-Citrics are also presents in the taste. It's nice, you don't feel the alcohol.
-Superb feel. For me it's a mixture between bitter orange and caramel which sounds strange but tastes beautifully.
Overall a superb beer! I recommend it.
