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.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
Couleur blonde foncée tirant vers l’orange. Gigantesque mousse dense et crémeuse. Arômes levurés et épicés, muscade, clou de girofle sous une touche de caramel et de malt. Très sucrés en bouche, sucre candi et malt spéciaux apportent des saveurs de bonbons. Une touche verte arrive vers la fin et rappelle la sève d’arbre. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne. Bouteille, Voyage Europe 2005.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2005
Pour is dark hazy golden with a big, but fast fading tan head...smell is sweet with brown sugar and hoseblanket funk?...some spicyness...taste is weak with some mild pepper and sweetness...a disappointment...

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2005
Light copper with an off white head. Spicy, lemon grainy aroma. Similar flavour, with some interesting herbal notes. Still shows the alcohol, but perfectly drinkable.

JonMoore (2025) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2005
Bottle. Hazy golden with huge white head. Sweet, fruity, spicey and a touch medicinal aroma. Flavour is toffee, malty, fruity with a medium sticky mouthfeel, and a spicey, lightly bitter finish. Not bad.
