3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Blonde beer with medium white head. Aroma of malts, also light sweet and some spices. Medium body, malty taste, light sweet, some spices included giving the beer a bit sharpness and also a light hoppy taste in it. Much better than the Kasteelbier Donker: more pallet and very well balanced. Nice tripel.

I didnt like this one as much as the Donker version. The alcahol is not well balanced to the rest of the beer, it is overwhelming.

Classica triple belga dal profumo leggermente fruttato e floreale con sentori di lievito belga. Al gusto dolce fruttato e in chiusura mielosa.

Dit is gewoon een heerlijke tripel van kasteel. De 11% komt goed tot zijn recht maar overheerst niet. Mooie gouden kleur, kleine witte schuimkraag.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
4/7/05. Poured out of 750 mL bottle at Stuffed Sandwich in San Gabriel, CA 4/7/05. 2003 Vintage. Poured a lightly hazy golden tan with a fluffy, rocky, and slightly broken head. Lasts long in a thin cookie-like patty, spotted with rocky bubbles. Lacing sticks at first and then shatters and crumbles, but still maintains dense ribbons high atop the sides of the glass. Lemon pie crust nose, lightly sweet with mild, inviting honey, candied lemon peel, and something like angel food cake. Taste has yeasty and lightly doughy components. Some subtly sweet vanilla flavors too. Finish brightens and dries up on the swallow. There’s background alcohol but generally really nice masking. Very drinkable for 11%. Medium-full body. Long, subtly humming finish with the mild yeast and vanilla, lightly dry and with still more hints of cake. Very damn good, and I think the extra year or so of aging helped to soften and refine this a little bit. I’ll have to get more.

Clear gold. Moderate-to-high carbonation. Thick white head that dissipates relatively quickly. High alcohol content noticable -- but balanced nicely by spicy notes. Better through the first sips as the high-octane nature of the brew makes it almost cloyingly sweet by the end of a glass.

Pillowy large white head. Hay yellow color. Beautiful cheesy yeast on the flavor. Bready nose. Alcohol is there but complimentary to the taste. A gift from a friend.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear golden colour with a nice foamy head.
Aroma is that of oranges and some other fruits mixed in.
Taste is also oranges, but can also detect banana.
A good abbey tripel.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Golden color, big head. Sweet and yeasty aroma. Malty candi like flavors. Alcohol evident but not hot. A bit dry. Med body, effervescent. I would call this tripel. A nice strong ale.
