Once, the legend goes, insulted by the stubbornness of its inhabitants, Emperor Charles let all the beer from the inns of Bierbeek be thrown into the Molendaal River. That's how the town of Bierbeek got its name. 500 years later you ar now drinking a Bierbeekse, a golden blond living beer with a secnd fermentation in the bottle. Cheers!

Simple malts, biscuit, some cara perhaps, only light cereal in aroma, very faint hop. Bit fruity sweetness on taste, some alcohol, not much. Really boring, even too clean thus below average. (33cl bottle from ABC Drinks Prik&Tik Leuven)

Ik ben een fan van goede tripels maar dit is geen goeie tripel. Niks speciaals van smaak.

Ordinary and quite boring Belgian tripel. You’ll almost find these growing on trees in Belgium.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a thick dark blond and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a fruity touch . This beer smells to fruit.
