COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A strong Belgian brown ale.
After extensive tasting, trying to fulfil increasingly strict requirements, the brewmaster obtains a creamy, dark Belgian brown ale: Kasteelbier. The quality of the past is still unmatched and the beloved taste is very much of the present. Kasteelbier is a dark, artisanal beer, soft and mild, full and creamy. It can age for many, many years, as indicated on the bottle. 11% abv, serve at 12°C (54°F) (Translation by Martinus)

Una splendida scura del noto produttore belga Kasteel. Colore marrone e una schiuma beige molto sottile, con un deciso aroma di malto. Caramello e dark fruits la fanno da padrona, rendendola una piacevolissima birra dolce dal primo all’ultimo sorso. Alcool ben presente con 11% e carbonazione nella media. Da non perdere quando è disponibile.

Aroma van karamel en chocolade, en ietwat vanille. Kleur is rood, bruin, met geel schuim en wazige gladheid. Smaak: zwaar zoet, licht bitter. De body is zwaar, met olietextuur, zacht koolzurig palet en lange afdronk. Lekker bier!

Superbe bière, très équilibrée. Des arômes d’abord fruités puis très caramélisés . un col fin et une robe légère en font une bière fortement appreciable. La finale est moyennement longue mais laisse une saveur caramélisée douce.
