Bottle, bought @ Beerplanet, Brussels.
Pours lovely clear golden with a big, staying, frothy, white head. Fine, rather large streams of bubbles surge upwards. Aroma is mildly sweet, some bready malts, light Belgian sugarm some mild viniousness, green apple. Highish carbonation, nice oily mouthfeel. Flavour is fairly sweet, apple-notes abound, some doughy malts, light biscuity, fairly crisp. Nice, straight-forward tripel.

JStax (2857) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2010
On tap I to a sampler glass. Aroma is slightly fruity. Appearance is a golden color with a thin, quickly dissipating white head. Taste is a very light fruitiness with the alcohol coming through at the end. Not a whole lot to experience with this one.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2010
(Bottled) Hazy golden, good head. Slightly vegetably nose with honeyish malt. Honey-bisquity, sweetish maltiness masks the alcohol pretty well. Not too acidic. Some vegetably hints. Quite carbonated. A very basic, but well-made tripel - typical for Steenberge. 5335

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - SEP 9, 2010
Aroma fetidissimo di vomito + alcol, ma cos’è sta robaccia, probabilmente la peggiore birra che Van Steenberge potesse fare; bleurgh
