Flesje gedeeld met familie. Helder goudgeel bier met flink schuim dat redelijk snel weg trekt. Aroma van citrusvruchten en kruiden. Smaak is fruitig en ietsje bitter. Nasmaak is hoppig maar trekt snel weg.

Daanminator (476) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2014
Dit is gewoon een heerlijke tripel van kasteel. De 11% komt goed tot zijn recht maar overheerst niet. Mooie gouden kleur, kleine witte schuimkraag.

Collint (475) - Sylva, North Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2009
Bottle from Papous wine shop in Sylva, NC. Pours a golden yellow beer with a big off white head. Aroma is sweet yeasty and alcohol. Flavor is sweet mosty taste of rotten fruit, banana, yeast, light malt and very light hop. Finish is clean carbonated and very little presence of alcohol for the 11 percent.

Bottle served in a snifter at Bullys. Pour was straw with a small amount of thin white head. Nose was light, hoppy, with a bit of light tart citrus, but it really reminded me of a fresh rain on concrete. Taste was light citrus, light hops, and candied sugar. This is a pretty decent tripple, though not one of my favorites. I tend to prefer less hops and not as dry for the style.

Beltramelli (470) - Campinas, BRAZIL - JUL 17, 2007
Fruity. Damson plum notes, green grape, pistachio nut and clove. Average cream, however with fat bubbles. Excellent aroma, of champagne/white wine. Present alcohol in the palate and the aroma.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 11, 2005
(Thanks to Rick from Cavalier for sharing) 2001 bottle. Light golden color with a fizzy head. Very soft aromas with slightly sweet malt, a touch of grassy hops and spicy yeast. Great carbonation. Somehow soft yet prickly on the tounge. Malty and just a touch sweet. Ghost of yeast throughout. Good, but not great.

chicagobears (461) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Poured from 750ml bottle into a Kasteel bier glass. The apperance was a hazy pineapple yellow with small white head. Nice lacing. This Kasteel glass is one of my favorites to drink Belgiums out of. The aroma was spicy, musty, and yeasty. The taste is stong on the yeasty esters, tangy and slightly burning in the back. The alcohol is apparent. The belgium sweetness manages to pop its head once the lingering spice fades. A slow sipper. This Tripel is well-rounded, but not really a knock out.

I dont see the point of getting this kind of beers to 11% abv, unless the guys who usually drink it make it a pride... I already find Westmalle would better be a little less boozier. This is hugely boozy.
