rederic (3228) - montrťal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2006
Hazy yellow honey hue, with a frothy white head, yeasty citrusy fruit nose, with some stewed apples accents, bready dough, pale malt aroma follows through on a full-bodied palate with a yeasty, bready dough character, fruity accent of marmalade, hint of vanilla spiciness, stewed apples, toasted and pale malts, leading towards a sweet honeyish alcoholic punch, candied citrus fruits and an earthy hop bittering finish.

presario (4901) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2006
4th Kapittel bottle from a 4-pack bought in Portland. Lasting thin clumpy head on a dark dusty golden elixir containing some dusty dark particulate around the edges of the glass. Strong fruit and yeast aroma is quiet at first but has a seductive quality that pulls you in. Body like drinking a cloud. I donít notice the alcohol in the taste but I can feel itís effect half way through the bottle. Flavour is hard to describe. Light, wispy, quiet spice, wine-like perhaps.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 28, 2006
Hazy/amber peachy appearance...I wouldnít have thought an "abt" would resemble a tripel, that seems like what Iím in for...big, buoyant head, slowly settling... Aroma: yeast, spice, fruit, ...very alert and lively, a boucy, flavorful affair, this... Taste it, now...big spritz of taste, here,...large carbonation, quite a buzz on the tongue...peach and apricot on the palate, nicely hopped, ...oversized effervescence, spritzy and spicy...likeable, though, if I need to mention it. Medium bodied, long, spicy, citric finish...nice ale, but not dazzling. Iíll have one again, but it doesnít belong among the pantheon of Belgian greats, that we can attest to...despite that, lean back and enjoy the yeasty, fruity, spicy goodness! I may also mention that the over-large alcoholic content is highly hidden until the end...10% what?, who?...oh...you...

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 15, 2006
Light amber coloured, strong carbonation and a large diminishing white head. Sweet yeasty aroma, fruity (citrus?) Full dough body, Finish is strong alcoholic, sweet ending more bitter and rather dry. Not bad.

eaglefan538 (2982) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 5, 2006
Poured with a nice head and a fairly cloudy golden yellow color. Sweet and citrusey aromas and flavors arose over top of the wheaty tasting (and yeasty) base that was accented by orange peels and coriander. Candi sugar flavors were detected and this one actually included a slightly bitter finish to keep things honest. Good stuff.

more interesting than the blonde. perfumey smell amplified by the higher alcohol content. iím a rum fan and this seems to have notes of some iíve sampled.

winegarner (220) - san diego, California, USA - MAY 22, 2006
Poured a golden color with a thin white head that faded quickly. Aroma is very odd, has an incense or perfume character. Flavor is just as daunting and disappointing. Some sweet candyish flavor as wellas some vanilla and apricot. As with other Kapittel beers there is a good level of hops being used. And as with the other beers it lends a harshness to the finish.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2006
Copper/amber colour with a small lasting white head. Spicy, fruity and candied sugar aroma. Full bodied, starting sweet and finishing with more sweet tones and some spices. Nice but a little too sweet for my palate.

PorterPounder (6711) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Savannah, Ga. 11.2 oz bottle. Dark golden pour with a sticky head of white with good thick lacing. Strong. pleasant aroma - pick up hints of rum, bourbon, maple syrup, alcohol. Sweet flavor, with essence of candied sugar, alcohol, hot buttered rum, butterscotch. Some nuttiness finds its way into the back end. Very thick and creamy mouthfeel. Impressed with the "Kapittel" line thus far.

10į!! Good taste, in real triple belgian style, full body, good flavour, persistant alcol aroma. A good beer for meditation.
