3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dorée claire, effervescence moyenne-forte, col blanc assez abondant et persistant. Odeur bizarre, genre égout, idem pour la première impression au goût. Pour le reste: mauvais vin blanc (astringence comprise), miel, bananes et petite amertume. Bofeuark!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours misty yellow to amber wit huge soapy beige top, light lasing. On nose it comes dominant fruity-yeasty with sweetener like honey in background, malt and hops presence is weak to medium. Taste is sweet with elegant medium bitter at the end. Bubbly lively carbonated and refreshing it was to me, finish is mild to medium dry. To me it seems not tripel, just OK Belgian strong ale.

5/III/13 - 33cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: 9/I/14 (2013-215)
Clear blond to light orange beer, big fizzy dense head, crackling (sound), falling down quickly, little adhesive. Aroma: pretty sweet, ripe banana, orange blossom, bit yeasty, sugary. MF: a bit too much carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet, sugary start, some dairy, defined yeasty character, some banana, bit spicy. Aftertaste: yeast, more banana, sweet and sugary, little bitter but not much, bit sourish, might be the carbon, pretty chemical ending, alcohol noticeable, warming the throat. You can do better than this, Van Steenberge!
