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).

Kasteel Triple. Gold with an orange hue, and a large head that quickly dissipates. Strong triple flavor, with hops and too much alcohol flavor, and the peppery aftertaste at first

Poured in a chalice. Mild carbonation gives way to a bit of lacing. Color is comparable to somewhat cloudy bourbon. Pleasant, with a nasal-passage opening hint of ethanol from this 11% ABV trippel. Not a seasoned reviewer yet and I am having difficulty detecting specific notes. There is a decent alcoholic bite to this brew, but a mild bitterness gives way to a refreshing sweetness. Thin, light with little carbonation once it hits your tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice golden color with medium to large head. Kinda citrusy, but not overpowering.

jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Bottle. Pours a yellowish amber with an average size white head that quickly diminsihes. The aroma has a bit of sweetness with hints of vanilla. The taste is sweet with a distinct alcohol presence. A light acidity makes itself known in the aftertaste. Good but not a great tripel.

TheJollyOne (230) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 18, 2008
Very dark brown body with tan head. Smell of very sweet malts, fermenting raisins and prunes. Taste is full of raisin, fig, and candied surgar, all a bit too sweet in my opinion. A hint of spices as well. Bubbly on the palate, medium fill. I could drink this again for sure, but it will never quite be a favorite.

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.

Fles 33cl. Licht geel/bruin. Mooie witte schuimkraag. lichte gist smaak. Korte afdronk. Een lekkere tripel, niet erg bijzonder.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Pours cloudy gold with a nice lasting head. Aroma is of wheat and lemon with alcohol readily apparent. Decent but not special.

VALIS (228) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 5, 2013
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? I’m drinking it 17 months after bottling (Oct. 2011) but I didn’t think that was a problem with high ABV beers if they were stored properly.

Temptation (227) - - 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.
