bhensonb (10355) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 6, 2008
33cL bottle as Kasteel Triple / 11% / bottled 03/29/07. Aroma is a bit sweet, spice, light fruit and a hint of burnt sugar. Slightly orange gold color with a significant white head. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is slightly petroleum with sweet malt, a little sharp, peppery spice, and finally some yeast. The finish is dry, with some herbal hop notes. The alcohol is ever present, and the flavors are not strong enough to submerge it properly. It’s not burning, just always there. The malt liquor of Belgian ale?

Hazy golden with medium head. Aroma has citric, yeasty and corriander notes. Sweet flavor with corriander and oranges present. Finishes dry and the balance is very good for such a strong tripel.
