Bottle at home. Clear golden pour, thick foamy white head. Aroma is spicy, peppery, dusty, slightly metallic and a bit chemical. Flavor is sweet spicy, fruity, somewhat alcoholic and a bit chemical. Slightly rough and with some strange side notes, but overall not that bad either.

Benzai (12571) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle @ home, shared with DutchDrebus. Hazy golden color. Smell malts, sweetness and honey. Taste sweet, not much more. Also too much carbo that dominates the taste.

DutchDrebus (5502) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2012 A mediocre tripel. Taste and smell were banana sweet, to bad the very bubbly mouthfeel ruins the experience a bit.

Rune (10834) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2011
330ml bottle with the burger (downstairs) at Bier Central. Unclear, golden body. Film-type layer. Malted wheat and fruits to the nose. Fresh fruity flavour along with honey sweetness and a lighter touch of spices. Notes of yeast beneath. Smooth and dry bittersweet ending. Integrated alcohol. Likable (Antwerpen, 29.04.2011).

FatPhil (13032) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 28, 2011
330ml bottle (S. Brevinga Alus Salons, Riga)
5 Corny aroma. Some odd mushroominess.
3 Gold, brief spongy head.
5 SImple malty body, slightly tangy, and a bit chemical. Alcohol noticeable too, as well as the other odd volatiles.
3 Some toffee butterscotch finish. Decent bitter tingle, but lacking in whole green hop.
11 Sub-par. Alcohol stands out too much. NOt a total disaster, but compared to the excellent Halve Maans we just had this is black and white.

Abio (1831) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2011
Light orange, golden coloured beer. Small head but holds good. Smell is light sweet, fruits, malts and spiced. Taste is a lot spiced and malts. Slighty hops, starts light sweet and switches to light dry bitter. A lot of these Van Steenberge brews are very simular... Allready 3th beer of them (in a small time) I smelled and tasted before I knew where it came from, and I allready tought it was from Ertvelde...

KyotoLefty (8907) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 12, 2011
Bottle in Leuven, 2005. Nice light blonde tripel. Good honey malt flavors, alcohol quite well hidden. Decent balance, fruity, some bitterness without a whole lot of hop characterer. Not ultimately distinctive, but good enough.
