by Brasserie St-Feuillien

St Feuillien is one of the many Abbey Ales of Belgium, meaning the brewing is no longer done by the monks at the monastery, but a licence fee or royalty is paid back to the monastery by the brewery.

This brewery is a staple of the Belgian beer scene, never too hard to find with good representation in bars and readily available in the supermarkets.  For this reason, such beers are sometimes passed over for others that are more obscure, more artisanal.  It is good to cast aside the preconceptions and enjoy the beer for what it is.

All of the St Feuillien beers are really well made examples of the classic Belgian styles.  Of course the hero of this beer is the malt, with the typical Belgian yeast taking up the supporting role.

Caramel malts, dried dark fruits, brown sugar, nutty, herbal, licorice and spices.  Lots of flavour, wrapped up in a smooth, way-too-easy to drink liquid for the ABV that leaves you warm and satisfied.
