3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dit is gewoon een heerlijke tripel van kasteel. De 11% komt goed tot zijn recht maar overheerst niet. Mooie gouden kleur, kleine witte schuimkraag.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance with golden color, cloudy liquid and good foaming.
The aroma is not very strong, but I felt some hops.
On the palate, a strong alcohol is noticed, followed by a bitter and sweet, which tries to balance the beer.
It’s a very strong Tripel, perhaps could have less alcohol.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours exactly like a Pilsner, with disappointingfoam head. Aromas: booziness, hairspray, stale Pilsner, garlic, stir fried mushrooms. No, no. Taste is way too boozy, almost like white wine (including the sourness). Evolves to a cherry flavour, which in my opinion is best reserved for the darker styles. Hairspray in the aftertaste again. Did not enjoy this one bit I'm afraid.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
looks the part. Nice clear pale yellow with a huge white head. Prickly lively carbonation. Taste is also as a typical triple. Flavor is correct. a bit dry in the finish with lots of yeast some spiciness and sweet malts and hops. it has a nice vinous quality.11% is too doninant and makes it a bit harsh. Not very subtle. I like this style but this is not my favourite triple.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
