2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale golden with big white head. Poor retention. Final pour adds the yeast remains, making the beer hazy. Strong carbonation, a bit too much to be honest. Smell of alcohol and sugar, maybe corn. Taste: sugar, alcohol, corn. Hint of bitter, but mostly a sweet finish. Feels as if the unnecessary high alcohol kills the hoppy, floral and fruity notes, leaving the beer somewhat thin and simple. It lacks complexity and the high alcohol and large amount of sugar deny the beer character. After an unfortunate clash with the Donker, I had hoped that with this tripel Kasteel would redeem itself. Alas, it did not.

Birra incredibilmente rispettosa dello stile, buona da far invidia con il giusto connubio tra dolce iniziale e amaro finale. Gran bella birra, da bere e ribere.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a deep golden colour, with a medium head that fades quickly, leaving a small lace. Semell of apricots, banana, clove, floral, honey., cloves. Surprinsingly medium to light boyd, I expected more froma Kasteel on the palate. Taste of apricots, citrus, honey and full bodied wine, the kind of sherry or manzanilla, or oloroso.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle bottled April 17, 2012 into a snifter. Aroma is of esters. .. banana residuals. Appearance is a clear orange yellow with a half finger white head that dissipates to a small white covering. Taste is slightly boozy with a semi sweey banana edge. Palate is good. Overall a very good triple worth trying. Cheers!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle into a snifter a light golden orange with a white head.
Aroma is fruity what I distinctively call Belgium when I smell the brew.
Flavor is subtle banana malty crisp defined. Floral but not overwhelming.
As a blonde one of my favorites. Refreshing and balanced to the mouth.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Stubby bottle. Blonder than blonde with a decent white foam. Nose is WOW, like walking into a banana plantation. So fresh and bananananana. Taste, surprisingly, ISN’T banana (well there is a hint), but is viney, winey and floral. Hoppy with an underlying alcohol burn. This is yummy! Just a shame about that burn.

Rundes Tripel. Wenig Aroma, aber sehr gut im Geschmack. Getreide, Pflaume, leichte Alkohol-Note. Lecker.
