A tripel, as solid as a castle. A full bodied beer, brewed with Belgian hops, to enjoy quietly, with a powerful, distinctive flavour: flowery, hop bitterness and soft alcohol.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, corn, sugar, hops, yeast, antioxidant (ascorbic acid).

Pours cloudy gold with a nice lasting head. Aroma is of wheat and lemon with alcohol readily apparent. Decent but not special.

Everything about it is bright and sweet, but too much so. Green apples, pears, apple juice, even. Sparkling sweet and crisp. Gassy. Is my bottle turned? Iím drinking it 17 months after bottling (Oct. 2011) but I didnít think that was a problem with high ABV beers if they were stored properly.

b79turner (226) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - FEB 19, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2011 Bottle poured into a Kasteel glass. Very smooth beer, alcohol is slightly noticeable, but not for an 11%. There is a hint of fruit that shows up with this beer. I was very impressed and would definitely recommend.

Temptation (226) - - OCT 11, 2012
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.

sound67 (223) - Offenbach, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2009
33cl brown bottle, as shown. Pale yellow colour, minimal white head, little lacing. Aroma of sweet-and-sour apples, possibly "Jonagold", and some malt. Medium mouth feel, creamy texture. Initially sweet, fruity taste of sweet apples, with a strong alcoholic note (well, itís 11 % abv) - soon to be replaced with a strong, persistent bitterness and dry, bitter aftertaste. Well-balanced tripel - which, in itself, is quite an achievement.
