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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Flaske fra min hyggelige pusher på Belgisk Bryg, siste kveld på hytta denne vinterferien: gylden, med fint hvitt skum som varer. Liflig aroma av tropisk frukt og appelsinmarmelade. Smaken likeså, og med en myk avslutning som gjør denne tripelen så konsumeringsvennlig at den burde ha en advarsel på etiketten. Lett brusete munnfølelse.

Bottle (330 ml). Clear golden with a huge slowly diminishing white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is quite sweet with light spiciness, lemony notes, alcohol and honey flowers. Taste is sweet (cloying) with spices, floral notes, alcohol and light bitterness. Medium body. Fizzy carbonation. Sticky alcohol and spices finish. No balance

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a fizzy white head. Aromas of candied lemon peel, bread, sweet malt, floral, alcohol, and a bit of estery pome fruit (apple/pear). Taste is bread, yeast, light pome fruit esters, a bit floral, boozy, slight almond, citrus peel, and medium bitterness. Fizzy, medium body. Dry finish. Definitely not my favorite tripel, a bit too sweet and boozy and lacking in complexity.

Bulles agressives inutilement, gout alcoolisé fortement, peu de nuances, pas une réussite.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy light orange with shinny golden hues and a creamy white head. Aroma is spicy yeastiness with some lemon and sugar. Flavor is syrupy sweet with some peaches and a slight floral hops touch, warming bittersweet aftertaste. Medium to heavy palate, not sticky but alcoholic and a bit cloying. A rather full trippel and a tad too sweet.
