3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Dégusté avec french tickler le 7 avril 2007.
Golden amber poor with a nice white head. Aromas of brown sugar, peaches, caramel and alcohol. Alcohol predominence... flavors and palate. Flavors of lemon and peaches. Nicely carbonated, sweet, good bitterness and creamy. Mouthfeel is surprisingly good. Not as good as the brown, but definitely worthy!

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.

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