Moeder Overste is a triple beer with 8% alcohol content. With its full, strong taste, it is possibly one of the best brews produced by Lefébvre. Flanders and the Netherlands have been able to appreciate this heavenly beer for the last 15 years. Moeder Overste has a golden hue and is perfumed with spices, wood and fruit flavours mixed with malt to produce a fine bitterness.
It can be served cold at 5°C or with the chill taken off at 10°C, depending on one’s taste. Enjoy.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 26, 2008
Bottled 33cl. Appearance: It pours a hazy golden beer with a quick diminishing off white head of a decent size. Some lacework. Aroma: Melon, hops, candy floss, yeast, quite a lot of cinnamon, gooseberries, honey and lemon peel showing up. Faintly acidic. Very pleasant. Flavor and palate: Wonderful. Malty with an excellent hop profile. Hints of crackers, biscuits, caramel, gooseberries, oranges, candy floss and lemon peel. Interesting and atypical. Low bitterness. Nicely balanced. Nice yeast character. Flawless. The finish dry with hints of hops, licorice and crackers. Overall impression: Different, interesting, flawless and very pleasant. Definately worth while purchasing again.

Pale amber coloured, medium to big airy white head, lively carbonation. Pleasant fruity alcoholic nose. Quite poor abbey tripel, sweet malty, light fruity and alcoholic with weak notes of hops and spices. Rather bitter finish.

Borresteijn (6490) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2008
On tap @ De Geuzen. Hazy golden amber, white head. Aroma of flowers, malts and ripe fruit. Flavour is malty sweet and fruity, a little tart. Becomes more sour as it warms up. A very nice fruity not-your-ordinary tripel.

Bottle at home. Sweet flavour. Hazy golden colour. Very hoppy. Has a dry finish. Not very special, but a very decent tripel which I enjoyed a lot!
