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

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.

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.

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

Not bad for a lighter Belgian Ale. I really want to try the "brown" version as I prefer darker ales. Too much head, and slight alcohol after taste. Smooth for a triple with slight sweet taste at first. Nice, but have had better.

Dégusté avec french tickler le 7 avril 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!

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2003 Skunky and bitter spices aroma. Yellow/golden color, white head, good lace. Sweet, citrus, malty, lots of carbonation, litle syrupy, where's the alcohol?

nice smell of yeast; washed-out yellow color with medium head; definite alcohol taste - not nearly as complex as others of this type I've tried

Finally got to use my cool Kasteel glass. Great glass. Average beer. Poured murky brown with no appreciable head. Aroma was slightly vinous. Some fruit notes. Light mouthfeel. The flavor was unimpressive. Some sweetness and some spice. So-so.
