Alengrin (4329) - BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2016
Bottle of a couple of years old, thanks Christophe for sharing. Commissioned Lefebvre tripel with thick, coarse, bubbly, snow white, thickly cobweb-lacing head and hazy peach blonde colour with vivid fizz. Aroma of dried apricot, dried orange peel, slight banana, bread, hay, biscuit, old dry cookies, potato starch, baker’s yeast, some ’natural’ iron, a bit of coriander seed and a touch of cardboard probably due to ageing. Crisp, fruity, sweetish onset but not as sweet as the other raters describe (probably due to extended bottle refermentation), estery with light banana along with peach and apple peel, sourish citrussy touch, spritzy carbo, bready and caramelly malt middle with lightly bitterish toasted edge, earthy finish with some grassy and spicy hop bitterishness, floral retronasal aromas, yeasty and fruity, some vaguely onsetting oxidation as well as lightly lingering coriander. Decent but stereotypical Lefebvre beer and most likely an alias, of Moeder Overste perhaps?

Thanks Sebastien @ RBBWG 2014. Pours a pale yellow gold with a small tan had. The smell is light sweet malt, fruit. The taste is similar to nose, quite sweet with a dry and slightly bitter ending. Light on body with very active carbonation.

sebletitje (9026) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
Bouteille 75cl achetée directement à la confrérie. BB 29/01/2015. Dorée trouble, col blanc. Arôme est malté sur un bouquet donnant pas mal d’indication des 8%, houblons sont de caractère nobles. Palais est malté ointe douce/sucrée très belge sur un houblonné noble au caractère légèrement fruité citronné. Haute effervescence presque sur un fini ester fruité. Malt carapils, pâle et léger caramel. Pour peu cette bière n’est qu’une autre bière d’étiquette de Lefbvre. - Floreffe revisitée possible?

75 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Courtesy of & thx! to Sebletitje. Light golden with an egg-white head. Nose is sweet & sugary, overly heavy with white sugar, cornflakes and caramel. Taste is overly sweet & sugary, cornflakes, white sugar, apple, caramel, grains,… Touch higher carb. Not my thing.
