3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy gold with a lasting large white head, high fine bead. Aroma of peaches, sweet dough, grass, light herbs. Sweet with peaches and honeydew melon, dries out a great deal with mild spicy bitterness. Eschews charm for finesse, but there’s plenty of it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Beer Planet, Brussels.
Clear golden with a big, frothy, white head. Settles as a fine film. Aroma has pleasant apple, light oranges, mild brett, esters, melon. Mild grass. Highish, lively carbonation, fat and creamy palate. Flavour is fruity, grass, peach, oranges, mild vinious, some dryness in the finish. Elegant, very drinkable, warming. Just a very good Belgian, really.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, light golden colour with firm white head. Quite a big sticky depot stays behind in the bottle, seemingly without clouding the beer one bit. Quite alcoholic hoppy aroma. Crisp, malty, grass and hay tones. Some citrus. Hoppy bitter flavour, sweetish malt background. Carbonation is rather strong, but quite champagne like. Strong hoppy finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy yellow, thick head. Aroma is soft (due to the large head). The alcohol really comes through, typical of strong belgian ales.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 330ml from the Grand Epicerie, Paris. Nice and strong, a bit too sweet for my taste. Aromas of caramel, honey, citrus, and hint of alcohol. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Yellow, with a thin head.

(bottled) I must say im a big fan of the St Feuillien bottle designs , with that picturesuq vilage ,this drab bottle sux. St Feuillien beers too , I feel are underrated ....their Triple is a world classic alone. the nose of this offering is honeyshuckle, honey, dry malt, flowery hops . pretty fragrant.
big creamy head ...yellow looks...
Its nice to drink, not crazy ,just a pleasantly yeasty , blond Belgium ...caramel malts , with its dry ,flowery ,fruity , crisp mesh of texture...Easy
