Bottled. hazy yellow colour with mediumsized white fluffy head. Aroma is spices, hops and fruits. Flavour is yeast, alcohol, slight wheat and fruits. A bit harsh, but at the sametime the sweetness balances it up. A weird one...

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 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!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2007
Pours a slightly hazed brilliant yellow w/ a modest spattered spritzy froth the recedes w/ haste. Residual lacing is modest aswell, NIL. Aroma is classic w/ banana malty sweetness and a mildly tart earthiness. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Texture is cottonous w/ a frothy expansion on the palate. Beautiful tropical banana cream malts w/ a mildly persistant acidic tart character. Kiwi, strawberry, pineapple, granny smith, vanilla, leather, earth, and a slight Flemish souring. I even caught a glimpse of cumin. Mildly sweet w/ strong flavors. Theres a pleasant brisk disposition. The finish is bittered w/ an acidic component w/ mild peachpit. The best thing is the retention of effers to the last sip. This brew actually gets a little boring after a while. I would suggest an 12oz serving instead of the 750ml I had.

Kirill (277) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2007
quite outstanding considering i got this for 70 cents at the supermarket, and a 13 percent tripel does not sound too promising... hoppy and fruity, but not to sweet, alcohol quite well hidden

JoeMcPhee (9268) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2007
33 cl bottle. Pale golden topped by a huge thick head. Very light dusty aroma. Black pepper and a light pale malt aroma.. Very lean smelling. Flavour is quite alcoholic. Some peppery flavour and a light spiciness. Very faint peach and pear. As it warms a bit, the beer becomes much more balanced and tasty. Pale malt sweetness and very light peach… the pepper is still there, but it is pretty well-integrated.

ha1ag (849) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2007
Bottled from AH in Mestreech. Hazy light yellow color, with average but vy bubbly fluffy head. nose is yeast. Aroms is fruits some hops and yeasr. Flavour is dominated by yeast, cereals and alcohol. It is not that well composed as their Bruin. Carbonation is a bit too high and makes yeast coming through stronger.

gmonroe10 (243) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2008
Kasteel Triple. Gold with an orange hue, and a large head that quickly dissipates. Strong triple flavor, with hops and too much alcohol flavor, and the peppery aftertaste at first
