4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
When I found out you could buy this beer at just about every grocery store in the Netherlands, my mind was almost blown. Not the absolute best triple, but a very good one. Notes of clove and banana, lots of alcohol, and some nice sweetness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with McTapps. Typical belgian blonde and the best one from Kasteel so far. Yeast and sweetness in the nose with a smooth texture and honeystyle taste. Good beer for sure and easy one to become drunken with style.

Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Unclear goldish colour with steady head. Taste of very strong alcohol, sweet malt, ripe grains, butterscotch and caramel. Not easy to drink, typical headache-beer. Nice though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a straw yellow into the glass with a white head. Filtered unlike some other triples so that is a bit of bummer as I love unfiltered brew. Lots of yeast and dough on the nose with notes of alcohol but not overpowering. Different flavor than I’m used to experiencing with most triples this one has more of a boozy character and less of those wonderful yeast and malt notes I’m so fond of. However, this was still a pleasant brew and I enjoyed it. I would drink it again but I’d have to be in the mood for a triple of this particular style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice yellowish golden color, with a white and soapy head, compact and medium-lasting. Slightly cloudy. Complex aromas, a little bit messy, with notes of citrics, flowers, caramel, nuts and a smoky touch. In mouth is very well balanced, with a great and lasting development, with the right point of bitternes and sweetness, traces of orange peel and liquorice. The yeast, and the alcohol, is very present in nose and mouth. Very high bodied, maybe in excess -it can be a little bit heavy-, creamy and full. Nice beer, though it seems complicated having more than one due to its heaviness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear golden with a small head. Initially a hefeweizenesque aroma with banana and clove, then some orange and apricot but the fruitiness unfortunately fades out almost completely, to the level of a koelsch. The aroma is mainly malty-hoppy, phenolic, with some cotton candy and metallic notes. Light body, very dry and overly alcoholic taste. Not too much flavour, light sweet with a powerfully alcoholic astringent, bitter finish. Very bland and at times even unpleasant. Pretty disappointing.
