3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden body with small yet lasting light beige head. Sweet aroma, honey, peachy, caramel malts, tea. Like liquid honey. Taste is as expected, with honey like sweetness, but fuller than I anticipated from a brewer such as Castelain. Leaves a nice warming brew for late summer or early autumn that reminds of better days. It’s 27°C today though... (75cl bottle from Auchan)

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is strong, vinegary, apples, wine, sweet, cider. Appearance is light amber with very short silky head. Taste is apple cider (brut), malt, honey. Mouthfeel feels watery, palate is is very light. Rather disappointed in this tripel. * Note I think this bottle is bad. It foamed when I opened it, and a previous tick on Beer Advocate I had rated this a 4... will try another.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a tripel, malty with darkish Amber pour. Not great, paulaner is better, why the comparison? Ask Dan.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small bottle. Golden body, small white head. Sweet aroma with fruity malts. Sweet and bold malty taste, almost lagery. Not resembling Abbey Tripels which are mostly dry, paler and have a citric/alky bite. Quite drinkable but if I had specifically wanted a Tripel and got this instead then I would feel cheated.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a bright golden with a full, quickly fading, white head. The aroma is a bit different, with barley, honey, peach, caramel, and wheat. The taste is a different matter. It loses the initial impressions and is replaced with a metallic flavor that is supported by a sweetness that doesn’t completely hide the foul taste. The aftertaste is the same and sadly, it sticks with you for awhile. Medium body and texture, soft, sudsy carbonation. Skip this one.
