Vells (1056) - Rīga, LATVIA, LATVIA - OCT 17, 2013
Malty and quite yeasty, bread, bit honey, spices, some hops, bit fruity. Sweet with moderate bitter finish. Hmm.. normally I would read my description and would want to buy this, thou overall I am not very excited.. Maybe I can blame poor balance, maybe bit watery.. Emm.. anyways.. drinkable brew, quite OK

Clear golden orang with an off white head and heavy lacing. Aroma of wet dog, must, medicine, and sweet fruit. Taste is sweet, medicinal, and grainy. Medium bodied. Smoothly carbonated. Not good.

Yellow with a white head. The aroma is full of grass and biscuit malt. The flavor is similar with some biscuit malt, Belgian yeast and grass. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

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!

jmgreenuk (5833) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 7, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a cloudy amber with a thin white head. The aroma is a little bitter. The flavour is medium bitter with a strange medicinal aftertaste. Not one of my favourites.

cmc619 (501) - California, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Classic-looking tripel from 12oz into Duvel glass. Light gold with a sturdy white head. Really pleasant aroma of light grain and smooth funk. Really smooth on palate and harmonized flavor. Especially like this one since I live 5 minutes from the Keizersberg abbey and it’s beautiful to walk the grounds in the fall!
