Golden and clear with a 2 inch persistent head - good lace.
Bananas, faint bubble gum, spice, yeast all in the nose.
Fruity (banana again), hot, spice, finishes dry.
Medium bodied, smooth, mid to high carbonation.
Overall a good beer - true to the style and enjoyable.

4.45/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a corked and caged 750ml bottle with no freshness date (yet has been cellared in proper conditions for over a year) into a 16oz St. Bernardus branded chalice.

A- Initial (and conservative) pour reveals a beautiful orange/apricot hued beer with minimal haze and a 1/2 finger white, head with sea foam-like consistency. Nearly perfect for the Tripel style. 4.75

S- An absolutely inviting aroma for a Tripel! A wonderful fruity bouquet comprising of pear, apricot green grape, apple skins, honeydew along with a orange/lemon zest...some pineapple comes though as the beer warms. 4.75

T- Equal parts sweet and tart. The tartness is that of a 'green grape' quality, reminiscent of a white wine. The sweetness is only perceived for a moment before the spicy and dry finish takes over, much like an oak barrel aged Chardonnay wine. Despite the (as far as Tripels go) a relatively modest 8.7% ABV, you do feel a warming sensation as it goes down. 4.25

M- Highly carbonated with a medium body. The spicy and "tannic" finish makes this beer quite refreshing and devastatingly drinkable. 4.5

O- Although Tripels rank in my top three beer styles, I did not have much expectation being that this is brewed with gruut/gruit as opposed to hops. However, this beer was an absolute joy to consume (the bottle was a relatively quick study as a result of the time it took to consume)...so color me absolutely impressed by the Steenbrugge Tripel. There is no question that I will purchase this again, but next time I will be certain to find a bottle reflecting a 'Best Before' date...but being that my review is of an older bottle, I can say with confidence that this beer ages very well. 4.5

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

DATE TASTED: November 23, 2013... GLASSWARE: Affligem chalice... OCCASION: a Game of Thrones reading evening... APPEARANCE: pours a slightly copper, malty golden body; lively effervescence; thick,, foamy two-finger white head that keeps its resilience; lacing is formidable... AROMA: bouquet is light, hoppy, floral with light citrus--mostly peach--and apple as well--quite an air to it!... PALATE: full-bodied; immediately warming at the throat; active and anxious in the teeth--clearly not disguising its intentions...TASTE: grape accents early grant a surprising start; smooth, mellow hops make for a surprisingly casual finish; coriander and some nameless funk round out the flavor...OVERALL: a bright, uplifting strength to this beer lends spirit to the religious overtones of the label; situated among the other beers of this mix pack, the "Best of Belgium" proclamation holds some substance--not the best tripel I've tasted, but more than holds its own...
