Birra incredibilmente rispettosa dello stile, buona da far invidia con il giusto connubio tra dolce iniziale e amaro finale. Gran bella birra, da bere e ribere.

janubio (408) - SPAIN - SEP 1, 2014
330 ml. bottle. Pours a deep golden colour, with a medium head that fades quickly, leaving a small lace. Semell of apricots, banana, clove, floral, honey., cloves. Surprinsingly medium to light boyd, I expected more froma Kasteel on the palate. Taste of apricots, citrus, honey and full bodied wine, the kind of sherry or manzanilla, or oloroso.

cernjoh (124) - Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Poured from a bottle bottled April 17, 2012 into a snifter. Aroma is of esters. .. banana residuals. Appearance is a clear orange yellow with a half finger white head that dissipates to a small white covering. Taste is slightly boozy with a semi sweey banana edge. Palate is good. Overall a very good triple worth trying. Cheers!

Poured from a bottle into a snifter a light golden orange with a white head. Aroma is fruity what I distinctively call Belgium when I smell the brew. Flavor is subtle banana malty crisp defined. Floral but not overwhelming. As a blonde one of my favorites. Refreshing and balanced to the mouth.

JaBier (4887) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Sample at World of Beer Easton on 8/8/14. Clear gold in color with a medium white head. Aroma of apricot, citrus, banana and malt. Malty flavor with banana and clove character before a citrus finish.

Niall73 (1780) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
GBBF 2014. Pours gold with a white head. Sweet aroma with honey and belgian yeast. Medium body, medium carbonation. Honey, booze, light corn... Nothing special. OK.

dogbomb (944) - ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Stubby bottle. Blonder than blonde with a decent white foam. Nose is WOW, like walking into a banana plantation. So fresh and bananananana. Taste, surprisingly, ISN’T banana (well there is a hint), but is viney, winey and floral. Hoppy with an underlying alcohol burn. This is yummy! Just a shame about that burn.

Ambla (29) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - AUG 14, 2014
Rundes Tripel. Wenig Aroma, aber sehr gut im Geschmack. Getreide, Pflaume, leichte Alkohol-Note. Lecker.
