COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

leaparsons (8606) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden with a large rocky off-white head, looked good in a Duvel glass. Aromas are sweet toffee, fruit, vanilla and yeast. Flavours are smooth, sticky, toffee malts with yeast, banana, hints of berries and spices towards the finish. Fairly bitter on the finish. It all fits together nicely.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 22, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2013 (Bottled, 0.75l @ Pub Tuulensuu, Tampere, refined @home with a 0.33l) Deep amber-orange color with a medium, frothy and creamy, lacy head. Slightly sour, honeyish, very fruity and yeasty aroma. Very fruity, slightly tart flavor with berries, banana, anise and caramel. Alcohol is evident, but well in control. Very smooth, medium to full-bodied, refreshing but warming palate with smooth carbonation. A very nice and fruity, saison-like tripel. (Bottled, 0.33l, bottle shaken) Hazy golden with a huge, frothy and lacy head. Peachy-creamy nose with honeyish, pale maltiness, grass and juniper notes. Flavor is honey-malty, fruity, slightly stuffy. Quite full body, foamy palate. Seems better without yeast, as this was still mixed after traveling. (Bottled, 0.33l) Now settled and indeed a lot more hoppy, fresh and saisony.

jerohen (2049) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2004
Bottled 0.7 liter, past BB date by a month (so two years old or so?). Hazy yellow/orange coloured, medium head. Some alcohol, malts and perhaps vanilla in aroma. Malty and sweet flavour. Nice in the beginning, but gets a bit boring after your second glass.

Bottle Conditioned at Berenbak, Antwerpen. Hazed orange colour with foamy head. Lovely subtle malty flavour with sweet toffee and a spiy fruitiness. I loved this beer

pivo (2612) - GERMANY - SEP 26, 2004
Smells like fresh rising dough - yeasty and acidic. Cloudy orange color and a sticky head. Big chewy malt body with some fruit flavors. Vanille tones tucked away in between. Turns to a dirty gritty end with a little pepper-like spice. This is what I really like about this beer. Fully body to support all the flavor. Not a typical tripel, but strangely attractive...
