75 cL bottle. Straw color. This is labeled a tripel but doesn’t have that candi sugar flavor that most do. It was a bit dry and citrusy with a sake-like flavor. Nice beer.

Shared this one w/ oldrtybastrd. Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty, hoppy, yeasty. Flavor is moderately sweet, highly alcoholic, citrus.

IluvatarMilan (280) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2010
Bottle @ EODT10 Pours a clean dark orange body; big laced head. Intensely sweet malts, acidic fruits. Not very balanced. Similar with taste, stringent sweet tangerine, orange but nothing to balance the sweetness with.

quite outstanding considering i got this for 70 cents at the supermarket, and a 13 percent tripel does not sound too promising... hoppy and fruity, but not to sweet, alcohol quite well hidden

capali1234 (272) - HUNGARY - MAY 21, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2010 Average beer. Aroma was slightly vinous. Some fruit notes. Light mouthfeel. The flavor was unimpressive. Some sweetness and some spice. So-so.

I decided to give this one a try but I was unhappy. I like the lambic style Belgium beers much more than this one. It sure gets your head fuzzy at 11% alcohol is about the best I can say for this one.

Poured a golden honey color with a loose bubbly head...Reminded me very much of an oakey Chardonnay...Light fruit notes abound in this one some bannana and earthiness. Strong alcohol bite very noticeable...Nice beer

Okey so I tried a bottle of Kasteel Bier Blond-Blonde (best before: 2009-01) against a bottle of Kasteel Bier Triple (best before: 2009-08). I know that they are the same beer. However, I will give the them individual scores and then make a weighted score for both of them.

Kasteel bier Blond. Pours a hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of bitter orange, some maturing notes and a hint of herbs and alcohol. Flavour is sweet and warm (you do feel the alcohol). Bitter orange, somematuring notes (yummy!) and some spices. The finish has just a hint of bitterness again with notes of bitter orange. This is some good stuff!
8/4/8/4/17 = 4.1

Kasteel Bier Triple. Pours a hazy yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of bitter orange, some yeast and herbs. Flavour is less mature than the Kasteel Bier Blond - it has the same main feature though (but less sweetness and more present taste of alcohol). Bitter orange, orange, yeast and herbs. The finish has just a hint of bitterness again with notes of bitter orange. This one needs more time in the cellar.
7/4/6/3/16 = 3.6

Overall: 8/4/7/3/17 = 3.9
