3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden color with huge yeast particles flowing. Soft, fruity, toffee and honey aroma with a slight alcoholic feel. Very soft, sweet, slightly sour and malty flavor with low bitterness. Very easily drinkable with low carbonation and a short, bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old gold, clear; thick white fluffy head. Dry, candi sugar, sweet nose, also dry tobacco. Dry taste, typical Van Steenberge imprint, aromatic but not really pleasing. Spicey finish, but unremarkable. Sticky, dry mouthfeel, not very well attenuated for a triple. This is just too much Van Steenberge hard mould to be really enjoyable. It’s like a caricature of itself.

Very deep reddish colour, brown/reddish head. Strong spicy aroma. Malt, very spicy flavour, maybe the spicy presence is a bit to overwelming.

Botteled jan 2000. Sherry aroma. Hoppy, dusty flavor. Sherry flavor, some cream. Has softened up over the years, I guess. Still good lacing. Carries the years with dignity.
