Benzai (10175) - 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 (4775) - 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 (9363) - 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 (10893) - 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 (1773) - 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 (7571) - 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.

thewolf (11495) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2011
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 (3779) - 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 (4691) - 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
