Golden shining and soft feeling in the mouth - perfectly balanced taste - full body and heart warming, a splendid aroma, tickling in the nose - hoppy dry long finish.

I have had this beer both cellered(18 mos.) and straight off the shelf and I love it. Excellent balance of hop malt and spice. Dry finish that lasts just long enough. I can’t drink just one

Presentation: Poured from a 330ml/11.2oz bottle in to a tulip glass. It has a hazy light golden yellow color with an excellent, huge white head. Its head is thick and frothy with stiff rocky peaks that last forever. The aroma is fruity and sweet with a nutty malt character and strong funky yeast. There is even a hint of coconut as well. The flavor starts off dry, with earthy yeast that turns malty, sweet and fruity. There is a slight hazelnut flavor along with tropical fruit notes and even a light coconut flavor as well. Hops add a light bitterness and herbal flavor to the finish. Its alcohol adds a pleasant warmth and sophistication to this smooth textured, medium bodied ale. This is a very good triple that has a standout flavor that I really enjoyed.

I really enjoyed this brew, it had a bitterness to it at first that slowly settled away. And it had a very thick long lasting head, however I have not tried anything else from Brouwerij Van Steenberge to compare it to. But I liked this one!

A good beer with a malty taste to it. It’s the type of beer to sit back and enjoy. A good experience.

Nice lifting citrus aroma; about as nice in appearance as a pee-yellow beer can be. The belgian spices are at first light but become moer noticeable. This is a Belgian that can be drank rapidly. Quite nice, and much better than the double.

I enjoyed this beer very much, which suprised me. I had recently tried the Petrus Triple which is very pale in comparison to this brew. Initially a great head, intense carbonation. Not too grassy or hay-like. Tastes very much like many triples I had while in Belgium. Good malt balance and the correct balance of spice for the style. I would recommend highly. Good beer with sweets or to relax with.

In the bottle. Pours an amazing white color. Gargantuan white foamy head. Is this champagne? Delightful fruity aroma. Rich thick body- this is packing some alcohol alright. The fruit is a pronounced lemon grapefruity taste. Tart and yet very balanced in its flavor. This is one mighty delicious beer. Quite a bit of spent yeast in the bottom which I captured in hopes of cloning my own batch.

Superb triple. Massive burst of alcohol, spices, fruit and hops. Not too sweet. Bottled conditioned to perfection, crystal clear and not too fizzy.
