Fin (7347) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
Bottle at De Metafoor, Leuven, Belgium Saturday 28th April 2012 Copper in colour in this light (quite dark in the pub) with a wonderful white head. Spices and minerally wafts on nose. Steady sweetness, and some spices in mouth, though the strength and alcohol is apparent. Soft mouthfeel, it is a good beer. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

dEnk (3774) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2010
Bottle @ home. Clear golden brown pour, small off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, poperingse hops and some spices. Flavour is very sweet of malt and fruit with a subtle hops touch, too subtle. Meh.

meerbier (1473) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle@Home. Pours very thick with a small head, almost no lace. Very sweet and alcoholic but that’s almost it. A bit fruity and certainly metallic. Almost like a strong lager instead of an ale. Horrible stuff, drain pour.

Travlr (10342) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Bottle at Biest poort in Leuven. Bright copper color, clear, thin white head with lots of lacing. Aroma of whiskey and butterscotch. Flavor has butter, caramel, whiskey and a gentle smoke finish. Complex, lots of character. My favorite beer in Leuven.

wimpie133 (380) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUL 18, 2009
Bottle, 33 cl. Because the Belgian Railways (NMBS) refused to foresee extra trains after Metallica on Rock Werchter (for Madonna they apparently did...) we had to go to a jazz bar in Leuven to drink a Leuvense Tripel. The beer has a light orange, a bit brown, colour, with a medium non-lacing head, which lasts however. The smell is very similar to the one of Klokke Roeland: alcohol, but also fruity and yeasty and a bit of orange peel. The taste however is very different from the Klokke Roeland: a sweet taste, flavoured with orange peel, a bit pear. Also malty notes and an alcoholic aftertaste. A medium tripel like you have some others in this style. Adn a typical Van Steenberghe.
