A tripel, as solid as a castle. A full bodied beer, brewed with Belgian hops, to enjoy quietly, with a powerful, distinctive flavour: flowery, hop bitterness and soft alcohol.

Ingredients: water, barley malt, corn, sugar, hops, yeast, antioxidant (ascorbic acid).

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.

My bottle calls it a Tripel, it tastes like a tripel, so thatís what I assume it is. Body is pale gold with very little head. Aroma is moderately alcoholic with a good deal of yeasty and bubblegum notes. Flavor is a bit dull, however; itís dominated by malty sweetness without the complexities of spice and other flavors evident in a top-notch tripel. Itís not bad, just nothing Iíd ever buy again, especially when I can get a sixer of Golden Monkey for what I paid for this bottle.

A golden hazy colored pour with a small thin head. Citrus, spicy, sweet like aroma with a nice sweet malty finish to it. I like this.

PilsnerPeter (3031) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Bottle: Light golden pour with good clarity and a lacing white film of head. The aroma has some pale Belgian malt, graininess, bready notes, honey, peppery esters, and mild banana. The palate is thick and alcoholic. It has a note of bread-crust in the fore-flavor with plenty of yeasty/peppery phenols. Plenty of spicy alcohol is apparent. Has sweet notes of apple, honey and more yeast and ethanol into the finish. Neither balanced, nor complex.
