Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a completely transparent lighter gold with foamy white head. Smells of Belgian yeast and hops with notes of citrus and a moderately sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel that’s medium-bodied for the style. Some clove too. More semi-sweet than sweet. Not bad, but not good either.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head that leaves decent lacing. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, banana, some yeast, bubblegum, pale crackery malts, a splash of honey, very soft finish, just ok.

Oransje farge, høyt skum. Aroma av gjær, malt og sitron. Smak av sitrus og gjær. Også alkoholen merkes. Litt tørr.

Certo per riuscire a finire una pizza con cipolla e salsciccia può sicuramente fare la sua parte, ma poi...

Schnabelhund (69) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 1, 2014
Pours hazy golden with a hint of copper. Its white head is big at first and has medium lifetime. The nose is very tropical with it banana and pineapple notes, which are accompanied by buttery sourdough and cupcake notes. It also has a hint of spicy qualities to it. A mouthful reveals a burst of fruitiness up front, followed by caramelized malts on the mid-palate which is only slightly unclean. From the center, it makes a transition from semi-sweet caramel flavor to a long finish which leaves a nice glow from the alcohol as well as spiciness of clove and white pepper behind. Steenbrugge Tripel has a soft and creamy mouthfeel overall; with an above average carbonation complementing the spiciness nicely. While the it can be taken as complex, it is on the more ’casual’ side of tripel. Dangerously sessionable at 8.7% ABV.

Pleasant aroma of Belgian yeast and spices. Small head disappearing to thin durable layer. Clear golden body. Harsh alcohol bitterness in taste with good flavour of spices.

Solid tripel. Body of grainy malt and yeast, with some fruits and a nice dryness.

Location: Draft at St. Arnold’s, 5/24/14

Aroma: The aroma is on the sweet side, yeast/spice, and some fruit
Appearance: It pours a clear yellow-orange color with a decent sized head
Flavor: This beer has a pretty decent flavor, leans sweet, with some spice to it as well
Palate: The mouthfeel is pretty solid too, with a decent body
Overall Impression: I’m surprised I haven’t rated this one before. This is a nice, solid, Tripel. I have no complaints.
