Helder bier met een snel wegtrekkende witte schuimkraag, zacht aroma, niet slecht

kermis (5781) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2014
Bottle at Cafe de la gare. Pours clear golden with an off white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel, alcohol, sweet dried fruits. Flavour is heavy sweet and light moderate bitter. Medium bodied with moderate bitter. Not bad but what’s the point in such a high ABV (marked down overall for that)

BMMillsy (1526) - Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle to go from World of Beer. Dated 2012/04/07, so clearly been around a bit. Pours slightly hazy golden color with a one finger quickly receding head. Aroma is a bit pungent with massive notes of booze and rotten fruit, honey, pears, smells incredibly sweet. Flavor is overly sweet and funky booze pears and honey, not much else going on here, banana and yeast esters, a hint of spice. Heavy on the palate with very high carbonation. I think 11% is just way too much here. Tough to choke down.

alexsdad06 (5938) - Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a clear golden amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have yeast, some apple and pear fruit character, caramel, and some boozy alcohol, not my favorite style.

digopossobon (296) - MACAE, BRAZIL - SEP 20, 2014
Aparência classica. Liquido amarelo acetinado, translucido, boa carbonatação e creme denso esbranquiçado. Aroma intenso e doce. Sabor de alcool e mel bem pronunciados. Ácida. Forte. Um pouco cítrica. Um pouco floral. Baunilha também. Complexa e boa! Retrogosto bastante alcoolico.

Fashawn (192) - Montesarchio, ITALY - SEP 17, 2014
Birra incredibilmente rispettosa dello stile, buona da far invidia con il giusto connubio tra dolce iniziale e amaro finale. Gran bella birra, da bere e ribere.

Alusmamuts (498) - LATVIA - SEP 15, 2014
Golden with rich white head, fizzy. Yeasty aroma. Taste sweet with sbitternes, some acidic, well balanced. Mild bitter aftertaste.

janubio (444) - SPAIN - SEP 1, 2014
330 ml. bottle. Pours a deep golden colour, with a medium head that fades quickly, leaving a small lace. Semell of apricots, banana, clove, floral, honey., cloves. Surprinsingly medium to light boyd, I expected more froma Kasteel on the palate. Taste of apricots, citrus, honey and full bodied wine, the kind of sherry or manzanilla, or oloroso.

cernjoh (142) - Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Poured from a bottle bottled April 17, 2012 into a snifter. Aroma is of esters. .. banana residuals. Appearance is a clear orange yellow with a half finger white head that dissipates to a small white covering. Taste is slightly boozy with a semi sweey banana edge. Palate is good. Overall a very good triple worth trying. Cheers!
