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.

9/20/2006 Beer at home. Very high alcohol content which is not well hidden, but surprisingly drinkable. Nice ale. Quite spicy.

Pours piss-yellow. Way to sweet for me. Alcohol dominates. Metallic, chemical flavor. Not nice

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Trappist glass. Clear, golden colour with a big, fluffy white head. Sweet aroma with yeasts, dried fruits, spices, orange peel and subtle pepper notes. Taste is sweet. Full body with a creamy texture and a lively carbonation. Finishes rather dry and bitter with a good warmth from the alcohol. Very enjoyable - however, I see no need for 11 % abv.

First of, I am not fond of Kasteel beers. This one is okay, compared to other tripels and good compared to other Kasteel beers. Taste: dry, coriander, hay, spicy, alcohol.
