COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

Bamsen78 (3315) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2014
Draught @ Le Trappiste, Brugge. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of fruit and flowers, with notes of hops and yeast and some uncanny touches of rubber. Bitter, hoppy flavour with strong floral notes and touches of malt and citrus. Bitter, hoppy aftertaste with notes of citrus. Decent but would be better without the rubber touch.

Alengrin (2351) - BELGIUM - OCT 6, 2014
Tasted from tap and 33 cl bottle. The best known variant of Saint-Feuillien, a tripel with thick, snow white, moussy head and golden blond colour, misty. Soft character, bit bready, floral hops, restrained fruitiness, yeasty; well rounded palate. Elegant, but perhaps some more hop bitterness would not harm it.

bartlebier (1884) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2014
Draught@Poechenellekelder Bxl 09/2014 - alas, only one week before Manneke Pis would be pissing this for free. In all aspects of appearance, aroma and mouthfeel veyr much the mild & smoothest version of a Belgian tripel, well-behaved to the point of serial sessionabilty: some citrus marmelade and peach syrup join bready, suavely amped pilsner malts. Herbal, earthy hop bitterness remains subservient to the overall round smoothness. Very much the less sugary Wallonian partner to Augustijn Blond.
