3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear light gold with white head. A little on the higher carbonation side. Aroma is hay, grass, belgian yeast and spices. Taste is similar to aroma with more sweetness and less bitterness than most tripels. Definitely get spice flavors with floral notes. A perfumey taste kind of lingers on the aftertaste. Really don't get any alcohol burn. Overall a decent tripel but not near as good as the top tier ones.

Pours a huge, fluffy, rapidly collapsing white head, with Belgian lace, lacing, over a very hazy dark gold (SRM 6) body.....nose is clove, allspice type esters, light cereal, floral honey, balance is to the esters and phenols.....taste is slightly sweet with floral honey tones, clove, allspice, soft alcohol notes......mouth feel medium body, alcohol hidden, no astringency, sticky mild soft acid finish. This is a complex Tripel with extensive dominating spice notes in aroma and flavor. It is somewhat sweeter than many in the style. The body is not as clean as it should be. BJCP 7/2/13/4/6
