Sampled on tap at PIB, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, and paint thinner somehow. Flavour of dry malt, yeast, not much else. Pretty dry and simple tripel, just how I like it, but missing that extra oomph to make it fully fulfilling.

FatPhil (15795) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 26, 2008
330ml bottle (Punavuoren Ahven, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks)
Hazy orange, accidentally poured with a few sinky bits. Rich fruity aroma - fleshy fruits. Alcoholically tingly palate, some crisp carbonation. Soft light grain base with almond and citrus - maybe tangerine. A bit alcoholic, but not offensive for 11%. Some nutty late finish.

Benzai (15297) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
It has 11% ABV but you dont taste the alcohol too much. Nicely done. Blond color, reasonble smell. Very nice taste.

bhensonb (14946) - 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. Its not burning, just always there. The malt liquor of Belgian ale?
