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.

bottle sample from a while back, poured a deeper golden clear colour with a white head, caramel sweetness, sweet overriped fruits, banana, honey, boozy alcohol finish in the back, unpleasant heavy finish.

I don’t see the point of getting this kind of beers to 11% abv, unless the guys who usually drink it make it a pride... I already find Westmalle would better be a little less boozier. This is hugely boozy.
