The BRUSSELS BEER CHALLENGE 2017 took place between 28 and 30 November in Namur. Eighty-five experts from around the world came together over 2 days to give their professional opinion and objectively and impartially judge more than 1.500 competing beers. During tasting, the competing beers were split into standard categories based on their origin, their typical features and their style. On 20 November, the results were announced at Horeca Expo in Ghent.
The St-Feuillien Triple was awarded the prestigious “Certificate of Excellence” in the keenly contested category of “Pale & Amber Ale: Belgian Style Triple”.
The St-Feuillien Triple (8,5 % ABV) 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. Whether served as a refreshing aperitif in summer or savoured during the winter months, the Triple is a connoisseur’s beer par excellence.
Brasserie St-Feuillien was also awarded with a Silver medal for its St-Feuillien Grand Cru in the “Pale & Amber Ale: Strong Blonde/Golden Ale” category.
A symphony of aromas and flavours Grand Cru (9,5 % ABV) is a speciality beer carefully crafted by Belgium’s St Feuillien Brewery. This extra-blond amber nectar masterpiece undergoes refermentation in the bottle, resulting in a beer endowed with unforgettable character. The secret lies in the unique combination of the most noble hops and the finest aromatic ingredients. Grand Cru differs from other beers in the range by its absence of spices. Its full, white head is light and frothy, and when poured it creates a subtle lace effect. The very pale colour of Grand Cru lends clarity and brilliance to its body.
