kraddel (4952) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2015
Pours clear blonde, big white head. Smell is spiced, bitter, hops and yeasty. has a certain earthyness to it, as well as a sweet touch. Taste is mostly bitter, in a sharp way (naturally, is a question ?) Over a sweet, sugar-like body. MF and carbo are fine, but the taste has something off. Not per-se a flaw from brewing, but more something I just simply do not like... I’d say its the sharp-bitterness&sugary-sweetness combo, more than other aspects, I really don’t like here.

Pours a thick orange/hazy color. A decent Abbey Tripel but nothing out of the ordinary for a beer of this kind.

jsporrer (216) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Pours a cloudy straw yellow color. Slightly sweet aroma with some spice. taste is fairly smooth and semi-sweet like clover honey with a little spice. Not too much flavor and there is a slight alcohol burn at the finish. Not that enjoyable especially for a Belgian ale.

Trübes goldenes Bier mit einer ordentlichen weißen schaumkrone. Geruch getreidig süß, malzig, reifes Obst. Geschmack sehr malzig, Honig, reife Früchte, leicht alkoholisch.

Douberd (3712) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2014
(Keizersberg Tripel) Stubby bottle 330 ml, served into a tulip, ABV 9% Bright golden orange colour on the body, very clear, with good activity in it. Tall soapy head, with good retention, leaving spots of lacing here and there. Aroma of sweet malts, apricot, light wine and wood notes. Sweet taste, with lots of apricot and peaches, sugars, obvious alcohol, again some homemade wine. Medium body, carbonation on the high side. Not bad, drinks good.

Goudblond bier met mooie witte schuimkraag. Fruit en gist in de neus. Kruidige en hoppige afdronk. Stevige triple!

ShivanDragon (2551) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
@Leuven, gouden met witte kraag. aroma van citrus, koriander en iets sinaasappel. smaken zijn vol van co2 bij elke slok, je hebt iig je mond vol...sinaasappel, mout, maar ’t is best een redelijke tripel. Afdronk korander en gistig.. Nadeel van een Belgische tripel is dat het allemaal erg veel op elkaar begint te lijken.

MrW (469) - Londerzeel, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle (BB 03-2016) @ De Wiering, Leuven. Aroma is light herbs, chicory, somewhere a bit banana. Appearance: clear blond, little thin sparkling, lacing head. Taste is herbal too, alcohol is present, sweet fruits. Aftertaste is long sweet but ends dry bitter. Started really good, but got more average while drinking.

Alengrin (3674) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
Abbey tripel, golden blonde with very strong, rocky head and rather complex, yeasty, fruity and spicy character, light sweetness, yeasty and bready, with dry finish of warming alcohol and herbal hops. Tasted at several years of age from a 75 cl bottle and the aroma had become a bit saison-like. Above average for a Van Steenberge brew.

Een tripel zoals het hoort te zijn: een uitgesproken smaak, dit is een goede tripel.
