UPDATED: FEB 26, 2011 Bottle dated May 02, enjoyed 4/9/05. Light golden pour. Very fizzy, with a bit of a sweet honey smell. Taste is a sweet white wine, a touch of vanilla and a suggestion of oak. Just a little bitterness and then tartness with a sugary finish. I found this at Foremost Liquors, being closed out at $2.99. Why? They surely know Belgians stay pretty good as they age. Maybe because the labels were different from year to year.
Another 2002 bottle, enjoyed 5/31/07. Just as nice as before. Just noting a bit of cork in the initial swig. Ive had a previous bottle that went way too tart, but this is still nicely sweet, with a contrasting dry finish. Crazy world, huh? This had a different label that I hoped meant it was the Donkel, but it still says "Golden" on it.

maekchu (2687) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Peachy sweet nose, big fumes, light yeast. Light orange/amber color. Rich fruity initial, sugary, syrupy thick sweetness, some alcohol burn, and a tiny bit of oxidation. Medium-heavy body. Okay. Heavy and very full.

Enorm mooi hier met mooie schuimkraag. Lekkere zoete triple met een bittere nasmaak. Mist in mijn ogen karakter en heeft een te wat simpele smaak. Lekker bier maar geen absolute topper.

jamaty (1160) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Dorada clara, con espuma ligera. Efervescencia notable. Aroma ctrico ligeramente especiado. Gusto balanceado, ni dulce ni amargo, algo plano. Limn, banana y algo de especias. Pese a que tiene bastante ms alcohol que casi todas las triples, se nota menos que en algunas. No especialmente reseable, e inferior a otras de la marca.

NOTA DE CATA: - Aspecto: Kasteel Tripel es una cerveza rubia una delgada con la cabeza blanca cremosa burbujeante. - Aroma: El aroma es a malta, caramelo y afrutado con toques de especias. - Cuerpo / Sabor: El sabor es muy similar a la miel, cilantro y levadura algo afrutado.
