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.

33 cl bottle. Part of a sampler six of vSteen. beers from <a href=http://ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/oak-forest in Oak Forest, meaning it may have set awhile without air conditioning. Pours a pale yellow in a tulip glass, with a tinge of red, and fluffy white head. Heavy smell of Belgian sugars and a suggestion of wheat malts that I’m pretty sure are not there. Taste is immediately heady with alcohol and champagne effervescence, sweet and yet still pretty thick with malts. Despite having sat in the heat of a store, not much ale fruitiness here. Instead, it’s pretty well attenuated and turns dry a few sips later. Had it with some camembert cheese spread, which worked nicely. Some notes of straw, then noble and citrusy hops. Nice version of a style I like, anyway.

Mild fruit aroma. Not much estery compounds. Sweet malt but dryish finish. Pleasant...

Hazy golden color with huge white head. Aroma is fruity and spicy. Taste is soft, sweetish, and with warming finish. Quite nice beer, but nothing extra ordinary.

Bright gold color, hazy, with medium fluffy white head and messy thick lacing. Aroma has nice Begian spices, banana, and clove. Flavor is nice- spicy Belgian yeasts, bready, chewy, earthy. Okay overall

Teran (208) - Belgrade, SERBIA - NOV 2, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2015 Hazy pale colour not totally clear. Nice white top. Pretty much flat beer with medium carbonation an everything rest but the alcohol. Drinkable but pretty much forgettable. More German Pilsner than Belgian Abbey Tripel. Disappointment, but here underrated.

Een redelijke zware tripel, een donkergele kleur, wel een goede schuimkraag.

Hanoi (668) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle. Cheap from Lidl. Nose is slightly sulpherous, grass, lychee, some fruity esters, peach. It smells slightly awkward. Taste is grassy, slightly sweet, and flat cardboard taste akin to a macro lager, corriander, dry medicinal finish. It’s not a very pleasant beer and probably the worst triple I’ve tasted. It was cheap but bad value.
