Reid (2276) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Corked and caged 750ml ( with a different label than shown) from "Habits" S.Salem. $6.99. Nice dark golden beer,with a fluffy,thick almost pure white head. Good aromas,spicy,sweet candy, sour apple( yes sour) slight barnyard. Taste is similar but no real sourness..until the end then its a crab-apple type bitter-sour. Smmooth peppery spicy,yeast driven flavours..some "bubble gum"too. Ok on the tongue..not too thin its OK Overall i enjoyed this one..kinda subdued for a tripel but i like it.

Vaiz (4190) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle at home. Deep golden color, thick white head. Aroma is quite spicy and somewhat metallic and slightly chemical. Flavor is spicy and quite sharp and lingering peppery. Nice and thick body. Slightly out of balance though.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2010
A clear blend of hay, straw, and golden yellow, her white head fades rapidly into a thick collar. Not as much lace as the Dubbel, but still a decent showing. After all, I am taking all this in from a 3oz glass taster, albeit smartly shaped like a mini hefeweizen glass. Her nose, ah her nose… Yeasty, doughy, and fresh, she is smartly assertive, grabbing my attention fast with sliced lemons, freshly baked sourdough, cracked pepper, and pervasive sour yeasty funk without the barnyard. Yowza! A thick full mouthfeel coats my mouth while lemony sourdough settles in for a permanent finish. Sour citrus, cracked white pepper, and whole lemons refresh, delight, and tease my tastebuds with each drying quaff. Full, rich, and stimulating, her simple yet forward palate goes down fast and easy as evidenced by my now empty taster.

Not the most complex Triple I have come across, but intriguingly different. Out of all the Steenbrugge beers I tasted, I would have to say the Tripel was my favorite.

sm89walt (1934) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2010
33cl bottle. Poured with a huge & fluffy, rockily decreasing white head leaving some lacing atop a lively, clear orange/dark yellow body. Banana, esters, yeast & orange peel aromas. These notes are coming primarily from a second bottle of the stuff. I think there were bubblegum notes in the first. Either way, the nose is substantially lighter than the flavour. The alcohol content is fairly noticeable immediately on the palate accompanied by light citrus, dry herbal notes, yeast and some tang. Finishes dry with a spirit-esque bitterness. Warming, medium bodied palate with medium carbonation and a lingering dry hoppy, yeastiness as well as the alcohol bite at the back of the tongue which I seem to remember was less prominent the first time.

checkmatei1 (765) - Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2010
Draft: Poured a golden color with a small head. The aroma was subtle fruit and spice. The flavor was sweet, peppery, apple, cotton candy, and other spices. This was an easy drinker, just not in the same category as the best Tripels in the world.

Strykzone (6560) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Not the most handsome of beers despite the gorgeous bottle. Clear golden with a small white head and fairly active carbonation. Aroma offers some fruit, spice, and malt. Feel is quite active and medium. Flavor has plenty of peppery spice, candi sugar, tangerine, tart apples, yeast, and a steady hop bitterness. The sweetness makes this beer very easy to drink and it throws out some nice flavors.

Wheatyweiss (29) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2010
Poured from a bottle into a Leffe chalice. Pours a murky medium straw with a decent head that recedes and laces minimally. Aroma is light grain, candy sugar and light citrus and tropical fruits. Yeast is fruity and slightly dusty or funky, but not prominent. Flavor is pale malt sweetness with a bit of a pineapple rider. Candy sugar takes the front and is interrupted by phenolic alcohol. Finishes boozey and sweet. Mouthfeel is medium with harsh bubbled carbonation. Finishes sticky on the lips. Carbonation is quite harsh and active. Overall a decent tripel, but not something I would go out of my way for. Reviewed on: 05-28-2010

Pours deep gold into a tulip Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving slower sheets. Tropical fruit, candi and yeast aromas. Sweetly spiced tropical fruits upfront turning dry and cloyingly sweet in the hot, lasting candi finish.
