3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a copperish color with a smallish off-white head on there. Nose seems to have a lot of banana in there with some of the coriander/clove family of spices. Taste is actually a bit tart, but finishes with a slight fruity sweetness. Quite interesting.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beautiful Beers, consumed at home. Yellow and hazy, with a fine white head circling the top of my glass. Full yeasty scent, doughy and thick, with some candy sugar and hay thrown in for good measure. Taste is clean and sweet. Medium sweet yeasty finish. Belies its strength. A cracking Tripel.

Served on tap in a chalice glass
Appearance – The beer is served a amber color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades rather fast, leaving a lighter level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is light overall with the heaviest of the smells being that of a yeasty and biscuit like aroma. Along with these aromas are some smells of a more floral and spicy nature with the spice being mainly of a clove and coriander.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit malt flavor mixed with a light level of yeastiness and spice. The spice is mainly of a coriander and clove nature with these flavors later being accentuated by some other spice flavors of a pepper and floral spice nature. Flavors of a more citrus nature come to the tongue as the taste advances with orange and tangerine coming to the tongue. Some floral and grassy hops come to the tongue more toward the end of the taste along with some flavors of banana and bubblegum, with the mix of flavors in the end, creating a moderately sweet, but very easy going smooth Belgian flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side for a triple with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. A slightly higher carbonation level may have been slightly better for the fruit flavors of the brew, but overall the feel was rather decent for the style.
Overall – A very easy drinking triple that hides the alcohol very well. Very inoffensive and rather refreshing and quite drinkable in light of its 8.5% abv. Nothing overly exceptional, but still rather enjoyable. A very neutral Belgian triple.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Classic Wallonian tripel with peach blonde, misty robe and off-white head. Rich and tempting aroma of complex maltiness, fruitiness and spiciness, rich malty, sweetish taste with elegant spices, honeyish and a bit sugary at a certain point but tasteful and not cloying, mild hop bitter finish. I was impressed by this and still regard it as a reference when it comes to the tripel style, I’d say this is still largely undervalued. By far the best of the Saint-Feuilliens, at least to me.
