ForlornHope (537) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
33 cl bottle at home. Looks like a typical tripel, golden in colour with a small white head. Aroma is sugary sweetness with the vegetable aroma one associates with Saaz hops. Taste is sweet with a low bitterness. Sweet palate with some dryness, there is also some acidity and musky sourness. I would like to have seen these tastes and aromas enhanced with more hopping, as it is this is just another sweet tripel - meh.

Alengrin (5727) - BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2014
Tripel in this politically compromizing series - but I guess you’d have to be Belgian to grasp that political meaning. Anyway: a stereotypical tripel with a thick, off-white head and pale golden blonde colour; malt sweetness and apply estery fruitiness prevail, some coriander, phenolic too; straightforward taste, malt sweet, subdued fruity onset, spicy ’Van Steenberge yeastiness’, mild hop bitter finish. Totally redundant - it tastes as if Van Steenberge made a cheaper version of their own Augustijn. Not to mention the metallic undertone. This beer company is quality-wise not an addition to Belgian beer culture (carefully put) and is primarily motivated by politics, that much is certain. No more Flemish lions for me.

JefVerstraete (3641) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle from De Zytholoog. Golden colour, white foam. Lively carbonation. Sweet aroma with metallic notes and bitter aftertaste. Unbalanced, typical Van Steenberge flavour, a flavour I don’t like.

33cl flesje via café De Gouverneur, Maastricht Alcoholpercentage van 8,5% Uitgeschonken in het originele glas Uiterlijk: goudkleurig met redelijke witte schuimkraag Aroma en smaak: ijzer, zuur, grassig Conclusie: niet slecht, maar zeker geen topper ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MarcoDL (5399) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Ordinary Belgian tripel. Has the usual traits, but remains a bit flat. Strange that they labeled a beer after such a nationalistic and violent event.

blackisle (2816) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Hazy pale amber color, one finger frothy white head, recedes slowly, thin layer remains, good lacing; aroma malty, banana, yeast, dough, bit toffee, coriander; taste light sweet, slightly bitter, alcoholic and spicy notes; full body, oily to creamy texture; all taste elements including some acidity present in finish.

77ships (11056) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 7, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ De Stroopop in Zoersel. BBF 17/04/2015. Almost clear bright golden with an off-white head. Nose is iron, candy, orange & pretty heavy on esters. Taste is pretty basic, plenty of esters, slightly boozy, orange peel, apples, candy sugar, touch iron,… Light, touch higher carb. Pretty dull & basic brew. Nothing objectionable here.

MrW (741) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - OCT 24, 2013
33cl bottle @ The Capital, Leuven. Aroma is hoppy, grass, apples. Clear yellow, huge white foamy head, lasting rather long. Taste has grains, malts, apples. Dry finish.

mutz (1113) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2013
Gouden kleur, veel kraag die langzaam inzakt tot een laagje op het bier. Niet heel veel aroma, wat zoetfruitigs. Smaak idem, wat vlak. Droge afdronk.

Countbeer (6599) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2013
Bottle: Medium sized, slow disappearing white foamy head on top of a clear yellow colored beer. Aromas of fruits, grains, corn, cream, sweat, light glue. Quite normal. flavours of spices, grains, malts, bitters, light sharp, some light fruit tones and a hint of yeast. Aftertaste is light sharp, light picy, light cream and some fruit. Medium carbo, bit blown mouthfeel, medium body and a texture between creamy ad watery. Bit Duvel a like but less balanced..
