UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 The Kasteel Donker is one of my top beers, but I find that the Triple, while decent, does not live up to the quality of the Donker. Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer pours a medium golden color with a large white head. The mouthfeel is moderately thick. The flavor is very sweet with some spiciness, a bit of tang and a yeasty finish. There is alcohol burn on the finish as well. The spiciness lingers on the tongue.

Poured yellow and cloudy. Aroma of yeast and banana. I felt more than tasted the alcohol. This was a pleasant surprise.

cloudy dark yellow, creamy appearance with lace. Smooth, with yeast flavours of bannana and sweet fruit coating the experience. Alcohol not detectable but then hammers you.

A true contender for the best beer in the world. Deep, sharp, mellifluous. About the best thing you could drink before bed--heaven in a glass.

had this on draft in antwerp, in a string of bad ones....is that possible, yes it is, if your not in the right place. this was the best of the lot at this old cafe we sat in all by ourselves as the bartender looked as us uneasily. (didnt know if he just didnt like us or because he hated GWB, which most of them do) nice belgium yeast in the nose with beuatiful haze and a thick white head. banana fruit and spices no real alcohol feel . smooth almost greasy on your palate. good.

Brian (145) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2005
Reddish-brown hue--almost opaque. Nice heavy aroma with some sweetness coming through. Taste is strong but not as harsh as I’d expect from an 11% Belgian. Nice

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 13, 2005
Golden ale by taste Huge tripel by strength. Some bubblegum and fruit esters. Lite banana and pear notes. Some candy sugar and honey hints with big alcohol warmth. Good conditioning and mouthfeel with atouch toouch to much alcohol.

desurfer (1224) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 28, 2005
My bottle calls it a Tripel, it tastes like a tripel, so that’s what I assume it is. Body is pale gold with very little head. Aroma is moderately alcoholic with a good deal of yeasty and bubblegum notes. Flavor is a bit dull, however; it’s dominated by malty sweetness without the complexities of spice and other flavors evident in a top-notch tripel. It’s not bad, just nothing I’d ever buy again, especially when I can get a sixer of Golden Monkey for what I paid for this bottle.
