Pours piss-yellow. Way to sweet for me. Alcohol dominates. Metallic, chemical flavor. Not nice

Wow, nice Tripel! Much 'stronger' than expected: and its not that yeasty as well. Overall a refreshing beer

33 cl. bottle poured in to a Trappist glass. Clear, golden colour with a big, fluffy white head. Sweet aroma with yeasts, dried fruits, spices, orange peel and subtle pepper notes. Taste is sweet. Full body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes rather dry and bitter with a good warmth from the alcohol. Very enjoyable - however, I see no need for 11 % abv.

First of, I am not fond of Kasteel beers. This one is okay, compared to other tripels and good compared to other Kasteel beers. Taste: dry, coriander, hay, spicy, alcohol.

Pours hazy golden, standard whitish to creamy head. The aromas are round and pleasant, maybe subtle, fruity, malty and a bit spicy. As for the taste, it is almost like a white wine in character, complex and smooth, with a well hidden alcohol content, hints of sweetness and a fabulous (but mellow) fruit-like tone that the Belgians seem to love so much. The flavours themselves are not round and deep like those in BSAles, but, instead, more delicate and fragile in a way that is reminiscent of white wines. Very nice. The body is medium and well developed, and the carbonation is medium to low. The finish is longish with a detectable presence of alcohol... though, you’ll actually detect that when you stand up and walk somewhere else. Decent one.

11.2 oz. stubby bottle thanks to weihenweizen. Label reads Bottled on 2013/07/03. Side by side comparison with St. Barnardus Tripel. Golden with a Amber like hue, thin head. Aroma has big yeast Phenols, banana, sugar, mild sweet malt,

The flavor mirrors the aroma with notes of peach. The major off putting thing is the high level of alcohol that can still be tasted during and after the sip. Sharp amounts even after the length of time it had to develop in the bottle. In all honesty, St. Bernardus wins this taste test hands down.
