Had 2 12oz bottles brought back by neighbor’s daughter from Belgium. Liked it a lot, as I do the other Kasteel beers that I have tried. Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Pours a hazy golden yellow with pulp. Aroma of alcohol, yeast and caramel mixed with citrus. Flavor is interesting, it has a bite but doesn’t. It is a mix of vanilla and hops with a finish of caramel and hops. Definite tones of bread. Palate is medium to thick and mild carbonation. Overall, a very decent tripel.

Yellow gold; nice white lingering head. Aroma of honey, grains and amber malts. Very tasty...amber malts, honey, caramel, slight alcohol, but this one has aged and it’s not so biting as fresh in the bottle or on tap. Very slight medicinal notes at the end but overall tasty with some aging. voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 22, 2008
Hazy golden with a large white head. Strong perfumey alcohol aroma, bit of yeast, citrus, salt and peach lay beneath. Soft, delicate remarkably light mouthful. Mild flavour of caramel, salt, some spicy vanilla hops. Finish is a bit more warming and bready sweet. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Bottle. Golden beer with an off-white head. Slight estery aroma with some yeast and eathy qualities. Bubblegum, sweet malt flavor with fruity esters and a bit of breadiness. Medium body. Breadiness lingers with some esters.

Elena ordered this and after having a sip I looked it up on my phone to see how I had rated it. Amazingly I hadn’t done it so I knicked it off Laney and squeezed one out. (A rate I mean.) Nice clean blonde looks with an excellent white head. You can see it has a thick consistency and it has lots of legs from the alcohol. Looks pretty inviting to be honest. Spicy blonde aroma with nice hops, honey and yeast. You know the drill. It’s exactly the same as hundreds of other strong Belgian blondes. Similarly straight down the line in the flavour but probably a little better than usual. Alcohol is clearly there but not as over the top as you would expect. Nice bread and honey notes. Yeasty, alcoholic finish that is a bit on the sharp side but still enjoyable enough.
Strong burnt wood aroma.
Brown foam and dark brown colour.
Strong bitter flavor with sweet notes in palate.
Recommended to drink with strong meals (hunt meats or spicy salads) llbjr77 (89) - Largo, Florida, USA - JAN 9, 2008
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. 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 bhensonb (15756) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 6, 2008
33cL bottle as Kasteel Triple / 11% / bottled 03/29/07. Aroma is a bit sweet, spice, light fruit and a hint of burnt sugar. Slightly orange gold color with a significant white head. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is slightly petroleum with sweet malt, a little sharp, peppery spice, and finally some yeast. The finish is dry, with some herbal hop notes. The alcohol is ever present, and the flavors are not strong enough to submerge it properly. It’s not burning, just always there. The malt liquor of Belgian ale?
