"Kastaar is an authentic beer, balancing on a harmony of taste and colour, between pale and dark, between sweet and bitter and spirited, subtile and complex. The ideal refreshment because of his lower alcohol content and his fruity taste and flavour. A real K-Star from our scale, a strong fellow (meaning of Kastaar)full of allurement and very charming, with his specific Kastaarglass it has brought us a lot of pleasure during serveral decennia.

Bottle @ Odense Tasting, Oktober 2012. Pours cloudy golden with a small white head. Yeast, grain, alcohol and dust. A bit thin. Yeasty and vaguely tart flavor.

Bottle. Pours clear blonde, Ok to small whtie head. Smell is sweet,malty but also got some different characters I don’t really recognize. Taste is intense, yet elegant yeastyness with fruity aspects ( not overripe fruit ) a fine fruity hoparoma as well that pairs nothing less than perfectly with the rather aromatic yeast. Light level of bitterness, yet the bitterness is there. Lovely in balance. Even though tripels will never be my favorite beerstyle, this one deffinately is worthy of being called very good !

ForlornHope (417) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a deep golden colour with a white head that soon disappears. Very slight aroma of orangey hop. Taste is sweet to start, then slightly bitter. Slight citrus taste, thin finish. OK at best.

Icedwarf (1312) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
Licht troebel geel bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hopppig met een ondertoon van zuur fruit, citrus en koriander. Smaak blijft lang hangen.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2014
One of those old-fashioned remnants of Belgian brewing history, according to a recipe dating from 1887, when beers were not as ambitious as they are now - hence the ’daily’ and simple character of this one. Nice session beer nonetheless, golden blonde with a creamy head and spicy hoppy finish. I’d prefer this over a standard lager any day.

Heel mooie beschrijving bij dit bier, maar ik vond het een bier met nogal weinig smaak aan

ShivanDragon (3508) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 25, 2014
spul meegenomen uit Brugge, gouden/oranje wazig met mega schuimige kraag, welke ook al ejaculerend uit het flesje mij kwam begroeten. aroma is floraal, moutig, zoet, hooi, sinaasappel smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matige bitter, licht zuur (fruitzuur van sinaasappel), matig sterk, licht fruitig, matig gemout en redelijk kruidig, echter ook de tonen van gist te bemerken, medium body, glad in de mond, hoge co2, al met al is het aroma beter dan de smaak

A gift from a colleague living in the brewery’s street. Like a pils but with hoppy notes and a sour finish. Nice aperitf or "everyday" beer

Thx! 33 cl. bottle sampled @ Bierkaffee ’t Middelpunt in Zolder. Hazy golden with a white head. Nose is sweet fruity but like apple juice, applesauce, Turkish candy, syrup, white sugar, syrup, very sweet. Taste doesn’t add entirely up either, apple juice & commercial applesauce, some chemicals, huge white sugar, syrup, overly sweet BE yeast,… Body too much yeast, oddly oily. This one of those dull BE blonds that veers too much into unpleasant flavours probably in an attempt to cut corners & please everyone. It is manageable still & drinkable for certain.
