3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden color. Thick layer of foam with a structure like the foam you get washing the dishes. First sip, extreme gas and bitterness. Second sip, and the taste was drastically different. The tongue was used to the bitterness and the underlying sweet fruity flavors could be tasted. Great beer, if you’re up to it.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Cerveja dourada e completamente âmbar, com espuma presente, porém fina. É possível ver bolhas subindo à superfície. O aroma é fraco e pouco convidativo. Quanto ao sabor, o lúpulo se destaca e o corpo é médio. É difícil destacar os elementos presentes na cerveja devido ao péssimo aftertaste. O álcool não é muito perceptível, mas a drinkability é ruim. Uma cerveja equilibrada devido à falta de elementos no sabor. Não gostei.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light golden colour. Fine foam that rapidly falls back though very much persistent. Smell of hop and apple. Fruity and bitter, lightly malty, spicy, a bit of honey; quite dry though very much aromatic. However not of the most luscious triples I know.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a bright gold with a slightly hazy body. The nose is unbalanced with alcohol right off the bat then subtle citrus zest and pungent spice notes. Well carbonated with a medium body. Light caramel malt with overbearing spiced notes of coriander and clove. A bit of a mash up. Overall, good but not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The beer states "Moederbier Bornem Triple", and was brewn for the 750th anniversary of my hometown Waarschoot. Nice blond beer with nice foam. Fruity flavour and spicy hints. Good to drink, with a great finish.
