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.

Clear golden colour. A touch of tart apple in the aroma. Flavour has a bit of sweet malt. Very neutral. Not unpleasant but uninteresting.

Recht dick mit einer ordentlichen Prise Vanille und Hopfen. Dazu heftige Perlung, viel Süße und eine gewisse Art von Süffigkeit. Nicht schlecht.

McTapps (5867) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a hazy light golden-amber colour with steady big head and smooth body. Aroma of Belgian yeast and flowers. Taste of Belgian yeast, caramel, flowers, hops, spices and bread. Typical Tripel - boring and too yeasty.

A bit cloudy, somewhat orange colored beer with a light brown layer of foam. It has a complex sweet-sour and fruity aroma. It has a bitter-sour taste in which the bitterness has the upper hand. It has a complete bitter aftertaste which hangs on for quite a while. Een iets troebel, oranjekleurig bier met een lichtbruine schuimkraag. In het aroma zitten de complexe fruitige zoet-zurige aroma’s. Het heeft een bitterzure smaak waarin het bittere overheerst. De nasmaak is vol bitter en blijft enkele tijd hangen.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2015 Bottle. Pours an amber color, nice frothy foam head. Well rounded aromas of citrus fruits, oranges, little brown sugar. Really nice. Tripel taste, little sweet from sugar, nice blend with citric fruits again, little sour. Aftertaste little sticky and dry from the sugar. From draft I rate it 0.2 higher, the sourness is more pronounced then.

Pours clear orange with huge head. Aroma of sweet malt, oranges, candy sugar. Taste is fruity and sweet with a touch of hop bitterness. Good drinkability and very nice balance. Excellent tripel!

Jimthechap (2064) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 29, 2014
Appeared faintly hazy gold with a voluminous, active white head. The aromas are typical of the style: somewhat sour with mild malts and lemon citrus. Not the most enormously characterful beer, but I don’t wish to damn with faint praise. The flavour is excellent with a true reflection of the aromas. It ticks all the Tripel boxes.

Bottle. Slightly cloudy copper with a medium foamy head. Distinct aroma, cant quite place my finger on it. Herbal. Also a bit strqnge but intriguing taste. Has a real nice edge to it. Enjoyed it!
