Dedollewaitor (16239) - Odense, DENMARK - NOV 11, 2007
Tasted as Kasteel triple (33cl) : Pours cloudy yellow with a large fluffy white head. Spices, alcohol & yeast. Sweet matured taste. Alcohol warmth. Incredibly smooth palate & fantastic lacings. Long end!

JoeMcPhee (9459) - 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.

KimJohansen (10510) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2007
Hazy golden with medium head. Aroma has citric, yeasty and corriander notes. Sweet flavor with corriander and oranges present. Finishes dry and the balance is very good for such a strong tripel.

yespr (46790) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2007
33 cL bottle (as Kasteel Triple). Pours slight hazy yellow with a lacing yet dense off-white head. Slight acidic with an underlying malt aroma, sweet. Flavour has a sweet malt flavour with a mild caramel note. Breaking this a distinct citric to acidic flavour intermixed with coriander and yeasty spiceness. Nice and complex and different from other triples. Pure joy.

3.3
ElGaucho56 (394) - USA - OCT 21, 2007
Sampled @ GDBTF. Almost like an overcharged saison. Very straw, haylike hops on the nose, extremely sweet malt body overwhelmed with the alcohol, yeasty bite towards the finish. Spritzy on the palate, but thin.

3.5
DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2007
Bottle @ Beer Circus, Croydon. Big head. Sulphur, egg and yeast nose. Golden colour. Taste is thick musct-like, alcohol and sweetness. Alcohol comes through the nose. I enjoyed this one.

2.3
mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2007
On tap, from old notes. Bright yellow with stark white foam. Big phenol and alcohol aromas, very sweet flavor with more alcohol burn. Too syrupy for me.

4.4
Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Bottle. Golden color, big head. Sweet and yeasty aroma. Malty candi like flavors. Alcohol evident but not hot. A bit dry. Med body, effervescent. I would call this tripel. A nice strong ale.

Cloudy golden color with a medium size white head. Nice lacing throughout. Yeasty, citrusy aroma. Somewhat sweet initially, with a dry, hoppy, alcoholic finish.
