Bright and golden like acacia honey, this brew’s lively carbonation exhales a fluffy long-lasting white head. Potently aromatic like many tripels, St Feuillien’s take suggests the usual blend of sweet grains and classic overtones of bubble gum, soapy banana and pineapple esters. Unmistakable coconut shavings, biscuits, lemon peel and waxy honey present the certain idiosyncrasies of this beer. Deeper investigation yields hints of green mint, leather, cigar smoke and white grapes. An undeniably attractive though almost cloying aroma. Fluffy and ripe, the mouthfeel follows were the nose left off, starting sharp with citrus tones and quickly moving to spices and bubble gum. Ample grains carry a satisfying and balancing dryness as the finish leans towards a slightly herbaceous tone of basil and pepper. The alcohol isn’t felt until a lingering heat warms the back of the tongue. Initially this seems to be a rather formulaic brew, but as the glass warms up the spice profile becomes especially intriguing, suggesting clove, black pepper and slightly musty peach flavor. St Feuillien has crafted a dynamic and enjoyable tripel that definitely ranks on the higher end of the style. (19/06/2007) Mogwai (227) - Askeby, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark golden yellow colour with white head. Aroma is cramel, honey, fruit, flowers and spices. Flavor is the same with a slight bitterness at the end, but a sweet one. Very good. joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2008
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2009 Pours a dark golden color with an excellent white head. Aroma and taste have strong hints of honey and resin hops. kiefdog (1827) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2008
33cl bottle from Total Wine (Tampa, FL). Pours a dark caramel golden color with thick and frothy creamy white head that settles slowly and provides ample lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, toffee, honey, straw, grass, spice. Flavor is much of the same with a slight bitterness near and through the finish. Syrupy mouthfeel with a short, tart finish. Interesting tripel. Pompey (42) - Longmont, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2008 Nice tight bubbles with moderate head. Just a touch of malt with little spice in the aroma. First taste of orange blossoms, vanilla and a touch of nectar, lovely fruit without overpowering sweetness. Hops are pronounced in the finish, but just a nice complement to the fruit. Great balance. Good body. Delightful. I could classify this a s a lighter tripel, but can’t. It is lovely and unique.

Pour is a bright golden with a large white head. Aroma is a sweet malt with some candi sugar. Flavor is creamy and estery with some spice and yeast. Finish is smooth and no alcohol problems. A fair to average beer as this is pretty light all around but it does make for a easy drinking beer. dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - JUN 19, 2008
murky orange-light brown pour with small white head, the aroma smells of raisins, citrus, alcohol, sour bananas. The flavor comes across weak after the aroma. Pinball (12600) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2008

[7,3,7,3,12]. re-rate 75 cl bottle from bilka.cloudy yellow, small white head that starts out gigantic, lots of carbonation, beer spilled over in the glass when I poured, and I’m not a newbie when it comes to pouring beer.fruity, malty sweet flowery aroma, usual belgian style, but slightly drier than average.fruits are ripe, ripe banana, but still not overly sweet. flavor is malts, fruits, belgian yeast. Fine dry triple, good bitterness, almost slightly hoppy, which I find slightly annoying with this one. TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2008
