BOTTLE 33CL. BB 09-2014. Look: muddy orange with white head. Aroma: malty and fruity with a distinct alcoholic punch. Some phenolic overtones too. Taste: starts very dry (like a white wine), continues with a fruity and alcoholic wave, finishes somewhat thin.

A so so tripel, too alcoholic and thin bodied at the same time.

Bof... The waiter misunderstood my order for "Triple Karmeliet" for Kasteel Tripel. My first beer had been a Chimay blonde, maybe that influenced my taste? Anyway, I found nothing special in this beer, strong alcool content with some caramel added.

Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aroma is light fruits and some spices. Taste is medium sweet and follows the nose.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Aroma - a champagne/alcohol like nose coupled with coriander spice, Belgian yeast, and some hoppy presence (doesn’t at all show up in the brew) Appearance - golden body color; liquid is mostly clean and clear, just slightly hazed; the white head reaches about 1/4" Taste - is sweet, but with an alcoholic quality as well. There is a fair amount of coriander spice, Belgian yeast, some acidic fruit qualities as well. Palate - body is between light and medium; the texture is like that of a wine and spirit combined, but also somewhat thin; the carbonation is lively, but almost fizzy; finish is dry, and boozy

blackisle (721) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Hazy golden color, small frothy white head, dissipates quickly, small rim remains, bit of lacing; sweet malty nose, dough, alcohol, banana, vanilla, butter, coriander, citrus; medium sweetness, a wee bit sour, dry spicy notes (peppery); full body, thick feel, average carbonation; finish is bittersweet finish, alcoholic and spicy. Alcohol way too prominent.

Nice light yellow gold color. Poured in original Kastell glass doesn't give much foam and it dissipates quickly anyway. Smells malt, sweetness and alcohol (it's an 11%). The taste is quite sweet for trippel and quite Belgian anyway, so I wouldn't call it my favorite. Overall a sweet Belgian trippel, but nothing making it special.

Hazy Gold with a nice top, a bit creamy. Alcohol dominates a bit too much; I understand that it is because of the high alcohol % but why have such a high level if it only dominates other aromas? Finish is rather short if not for the alcohol. Bitterness is OK
