3.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
StFeuillien Grand Cru
Thought it was time to kick it up a notch both in ABV and style.
Very pale yellow pour with lots and lots of foamy white head. Sour yeasty smell. A bit of banana?
Wow that’s a large mix of tastes that are all very mellow and mix together very well. A lot going on here. For the amount of head the carbonation doesn’t seem all that high. Sour motes with some sweetness in the middle then back to sour. A bit of that ’sweet tart’ thing going on. Very well balanced. Very enjoyable.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Bottle. Pours clear yellow with a huge head and tons of bubbles. Faint smell of fruits and yeast, slightly acidic. Taste - starts with fruity sweetness, bitter-sweet medicinal finish, not balanced flavors, did not really work for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle. Pours a pale yellow colour with a frothy, white, two finger head that slowly thins to a small ring and cap. Light lacing.
Smell is slightly acidic. Notes of yeast, lemon, and other citrus fruits.
Taste is semi sweet but well balanced with a slightly spicy/bitter alcohol aftertaste that lingers a while.
Medium body with a medium to high carbonation. Has a lively, bubbly texture.
Very nice brew well worth a try. Very lively and pleasant to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle from Terre de Boissons, Calais. Pale gold beer slight haze thick white head. Spicy hoppy aroma with some light esters. Mmmm, yes, a tasty Belgian blonde. Very likeable. Bit too carbonated, but you can get rid of that to leave a good lemon curd flavour. It’s a decent light tripel. Light citrus fruity. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a medium white head. Aroma brings out quite a bit of hops, Belgian yeast, and some spicy floral notes. Flavour brings out quite a strong hoppy character for a Belgian, along with subtle spicy floral hops, and lots of Belgian yeast. Very hoppy for the style, with quite a nice complexity. ABV is no where to be detected. Carbonation is quite high, but well-suited for the flavours and body. Great stuff.

Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 11.2 oz bottle. Hazy light golden pour with a soft white head that sticks around a while. Fresh lemony aroma with hints of saffron spiciness and a hint of yeast. Flavor has some light citrus bitterness, some doughy yeasty notes, some saffron-like spiciness and a back end of white grapes. Mouthfeel has a nice thickness to it with just the right amount of spritz.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slim white head, pint-like colour, high carbonation. Blend nose, like a regular blond beer. Taste is as blend with no subtlety as expected of a grand cru, except its high carbonation.
