One of best tripel i ever drunk... Classic tripel color, aoma and taste are sweet and fruity (Peach...) , the body is smooth, and the carbonation is soft, one very good after dinner beer!

Great example of the sub-style, the abbey tripel. Yeasty and sharp-malted with a very pronounced alcohol burn and slightly hoppy finish, the difference between this and, say, an ISL is the layers of flavor that unravel as it warms up (11.2 oz bottle, Carrefour Exp)

Une triple un niveau de 11 % Abv de la brasserie Van Honsebrouck nous envoie du lourd. Cest en effet une bire de caractre o lalcool sexprime franchement qui nous est propose. Sa robe est dun beau dor fonc mais cependant avec une mousse quasi inexistante. Le nez est port sur les fruits confits, labricot sec sur un fond dalcool marquant. Lattaque est relativement douce et plutt discrte en se portant essentiellement sur les crales. Lamertume et lalcool arrive alors de faon directe et intense. Lampleur en bouche est soutenue avec des armes complmentaires de fruits confits, dabricots et de poires et une pointe de girofle. Le final, long, ne laissera en rien diminuer la puissance des armes qui perdurent longtemps en bouche. Ce final napporte nanmoins aucune variation qui aurait pu augmenter la complexit de la bire. Lensemble est bien dos, lalcool prsent est bien intgr, et le sucre ncessaire pour contrebalancer quelque peu nos 11 %, nest pas en sur-saturation. En conclusion, cette Kasteel est un triple forte qui sassume, et qui grce une bonne homognit sait rester agrable.

Moravius (1152) - Beijing, CHINA - NOV 6, 2016
Flasche (Kasteel Tripel, 33 cl) von Jenny Lous, Peking. - Goldbraun, schwach trb. - In der Nase schwere Se von Konfitre und berreifer Banane, aufdringlicher Alkohol und ein wenig Lsungsmittel. - Im Antrunk breite Se von Aprikosenkonfitre und Sahnebonbons, die allmhlich in leicht holzige Herbe mit bitterer Orangenschale und leichter Schrfe bergeht. Gut rezent. Der Alkohol ist viel zu prominent. Herb-trockener Abgang mit Orangenschale und grnen pfeln, unangenehm medizinischer Nachtrunk (Aspirin). - Arg grob gestricktes Tripel: zuviel Alkohol, in ruppige Aromen gekleidet. Warum Michael Rudolf ausgerechnet das in seine 100 besten Biere der Welt aufgenommen hat?

Bill Becker (847) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 22, 2016
Bottled March 17th, 2013. Light gold with plenty of foam. Long lasting with lacing. Caramel malt with maple syrup like aroma. Tiny bit of what I suspect is oxidation. Fruity, with hints of tartness, more massive than any sweet notes that I expected to find. Quite different than the smell but good in its own right. 11% abv seems to be on the timid side. Decent mouthfeel though I reckon some carbonation was lost in the 3 and a half years. $2. On clearance. Worthy.

Belle robe dore avec mousse peu persistante.Le nez nous offre une odeur trs frache et douce avec des notes citronnes et herbaces.Une lgre amertume se fait sentir en arrire bouche. Une tripel blonde bien quilibre entre lamertume, la douceur et lalcool!

appiantiqua (110) - Lyon, FRANCE - SEP 21, 2016
Gote dans un verre neutre "tulipe". La robe est dore avec une mousse de faible tenue. Le nez est plaisant avec de lgres notes citronnes et dabricot. Le got apporte une bonne amertume toujours sur des fruits jaunes. Larrire bouche est de longueur moyenne et maintient un bon quilibre. Une trs bonne triple. 15.5/20

Good tripel. Nothing wrong with it. No special aroma, but good mouthfeel, palate and aftertaste. Little spicy.

ulrikolsen (440) - DENMARK - AUG 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours clear golden with beige head. Aroma is sweet and light malty with biscuit and light spicy. Taste is light malty with biscuit and light bread yet spicy with coriander and has a balanced sweet and spicy dry finish. Alcohol quite evident.

thirstyrabbit (1772) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle. Semi-clear golden body, medium to small head. Aroma has honey, biscuity malts and Belgian yeast. A bit thin mouthfeel. Taste has sweet malts, caramelly and biscuity. Hops are dry and herbal. Finish has notes of white wine sourness and the booze is pretty evident. Not a very smooth sipper. More yeast could give this beer a more fuller and perhaps smoother feeling.
