Golden shining and soft feeling in the mouth - perfectly balanced taste - full body and heart warming, a splendid aroma, tickling in the nose - hoppy dry long finish.

33 cl bottle. Part of a sampler six of vSteen. beers from <a href=http://ratebeer.com/Place/illinois/oak-forest in Oak Forest, meaning it may have set awhile without air conditioning. Pours a pale yellow in a tulip glass, with a tinge of red, and fluffy white head. Heavy smell of Belgian sugars and a suggestion of wheat malts that Im pretty sure are not there. Taste is immediately heady with alcohol and champagne effervescence, sweet and yet still pretty thick with malts. Despite having sat in the heat of a store, not much ale fruitiness here. Instead, its pretty well attenuated and turns dry a few sips later. Had it with some camembert cheese spread, which worked nicely. Some notes of straw, then noble and citrusy hops. Nice version of a style I like, anyway.

330ml bottle as a gift:
Lively & quite a bubbly, fresh beer that was well carbonated & featured some nice fruits at times, although they did prove to be quite subdued & even weak at times. There was some faint sweetness from the malts as well & the alcohol content turned out to be quite well hidden with some funky flavours, tart & yeast masking it for the most part. It was definitely a drinkable offering but I wouldnt say it was particularly enjoyable, it was an improvement on the Dubbel version from the same brewery though & I guess thats something.

adster (773) - HUNGARY - JAN 29, 2017
Teasznű test, kiss knes, komlval kevert, mzesen lesztős aromk. A szerkezet alapjban vve nem rossz, kellően kerek, nem szrs, teltnek hat zjegyekkel br, melyek kztt zldalms, cukrozott kelt tszts, feldestett malts, lesztős elemek fedezhetőek fel. A zr akkordok enyhn megmunklatlannak tűnnek, kiss cspős s szraz hangulatok keverednek egy j adag keserdes jelleggel; nem az a letisztult karakter, meg kell hagyni, de termszetesen nem is ihatatlan, egyszerű, de elfogadhat tripel.

CanCrusher (1031) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle 0,33L. Clear, golden color with huge, creamy, fully lasting, white head and lively visible carbonation. Aroma of bready malts and earthy yeasts. Taste is light bitter and earthy with medium bitter, hoppy finish. Medium to full body, oily texture, lively carbonation. OK, drinkable beer, reminds me of Duvel.

gegwilson (3588) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 22, 2016
Bottle from Lidl. Pours blond with a foth white head. Mild toasty aroma. The taste is quite spicy with lots of dry pepper. Toasty undertones. Fairly thin for the ABV. Ok.

Kicsit olyan hopfentripeles volt az egsz, gejl-desbe hajlan, viszont legalbb tmelengető.

Pretty basic tripel. Not bad but far from special. Nice hop and yeast combination. Considering the price its decent.

0.33 l bottle. Pours clear golden with everlasting, white head. Fruit dominated aroma with undertoning yeasty and slight alcoholic notes. Sweet, fruity taste with moderate alcoholic notes and warm mouthfeel. Leaves dry, bitter finish. Lively carbonated, medium bodied yet refreshing brew. Works for me.
