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.

Yellow/gold color, with a rather large, white head. Aromas include hops, a little fruit, and flowers. Flavor is also flowery, with some malt. Ends is a little bitter. Palate id just right. Not top of the heap, but pretty good.

harvey (40) - Milano, ITALY - OCT 20, 2004
Golden and opalescent, with a white foamy head of long persistence, compact and adherent. Very hoppy aroma with hits of wild flowers. Flavour is sweet and spicy, medium bodied with a dry hoppy finish.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Shiny clear gold. Head big and puffy, but fades rather quickly. Nose perfumed and flowery, bit sweet. Flavor starts spicy and peppery, blends to some melon fruitiness, quite dry at the end, rather yeasty.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2004
Bottle bought up in Belgium. As pale as Fosters Lager. However this isnít carried through into the aroma or taste, as itís full of flavour, spicy and hoppy, yeasty and peppery. Excellent Tripel

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 14, 2004
Bottle. Harsh lemon and yeast in the aroma, slight hint of it being stale. The palate was softer than the nost was suggesting. In many ways a typical triple, yeasty, peppery, appley(and also pears), with some lemony acidity, slightly dusty, spicy mouthfeel, with a little alcohol in the finish, reasonably bitter, felt a bit stale though, yet it was within the use-by date, didnít like it as much as their others.

Krasulak (88) - Wapadrand, Pretoria, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 14, 2004
Stubby 330 ml Duvellike bottle. Light golden with huge white head. Strong lacing. Powerful aroma of fruit, nectar rich flowers, green apple peel, fresh rising yeast. Intense and quite complex flavour: fruity, especially grapefruit, a bit sour but also sweet and bitter, goodly touch of ripe melon. Lively carbonation- watch for those beer burps! Alcohol (not too shabby at 8.5 %) nicely tucked away. An absolutely delightful triple. Positively a threat to my sobriety.

Nice Belgian Triple. Huge white head and a very lively mouthfeel. Good stuff!

BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2004 Very powerful flower-hoppy, peppery-yeasty aroma even at a cold temperature. Interesting "conventional" light golden color - from a distance could pass for a light pale ale. Thick head with lacing so strong the lip marks actually stay on the glass! Flavor somewhat bland but with some intense fruity gushes, and a sweet-and-sour complexity going down. Like so many excellent Belgians the afterglow is the highlight of the brew - intensely bitter with grapefruit and slight raisin tinges ... and needless to say enough intense beerburp carbonation to cure even the worst indigestion. [Slight revision 09/11/2004: subtracted 1 point in Overall because the yeast element is slightly overprominent in the carbonation.]

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2004
Clear golden hue, and a towering, fantastic, huge white head. Aroma is gorgeous and spicy, with citrus and honey notes. So far, itís a perfect profile for a tripel without even taking a taste. And, that taste? Divine! Utterly lovely, light, buouyant, with a dazzling hop prominence at first, and a good touch of graininess in the texture. Sweet, light, and scrumptious, and the sugar starts to take prominence here in the middle. An utterly unreproachable tripel, and a complete delight. Top-notch tripel, beautiful beer.
