750 split two ways. Hazy golden in appearance with a medium to large white head. Aroma is spicy and fruity, with citrus notes and some ethanol. Taste is the same, with a spicy, and alcohol warming finish.

Bottled. hazy yellow colour with mediumsized white fluffy head. Aroma is spices, hops and fruits. Flavour is yeast, alcohol, slight wheat and fruits. A bit harsh, but at the sametime the sweetness balances it up. A weird one...

johninmelb (1127) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2006
Big floral nose with some grapefruit, some musk and some peach. Pours cloudy pale gold with quickly dissipating head. Flavour is fresh and slightly tangy with herbs and spice developing into a slightly astringent but generally pleasing long finish. A Cate Blanchett of blondes.

jcr (2365) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Hazy, golden pour with average white head. Sweet aroma that is filled with spice and yeast — clove, coriander, alcohol and a hint of ripe fruit. And then there is the note of medicine behind all this that also shows up in the flavor which is moderately sweet and slightly bitter at the end. Medium body and somewhat watery texture. The taste and aroma improved dramatically as the temperature rose above 55 degrees.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - DEC 3, 2006
A golden hazy colored pour with a small thin head. Citrus, spicy, sweet like aroma with a nice sweet malty finish to it. I like this.

Tmoney99 (12036) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2006
Bottle. Poured a orange hue with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Full aroma of sweet fruit and alcohol. Medium body with smooth texture. Full flavor of fruit and spice with a solid alcohol bite at the finish.

kopestes (164) - Braine l’Alleud, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2006 0.33l bottle at home. Yellow with almost no head. Some lacing though. Aroma is very light fruity and some spicy hint. Aroma is more intense as beer warmes up-gets more spicy. Quite spicy taste in the beginning and malty at the end. Alcohol is quite present. It is a nice triple.

DruncanVeasey (7712) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2007 Wildly fizzing golden trumpet swirling with chunks. Rocky pillows of aromatic foam. A flowery snout, with hints of vanilla, honey and coriander lulling you into a dangerous sense of security. And then the electrodes are attached. A sledgehammer of booze-sodden fruit and cough-medicine strangeness knocks you out of your chair. Your ears catch fire. You cough and struggle at first, but slowly succumb to the narcotic herbal woodiness and odd vinous dryness. A dizzying fog of sweet spiritous fumes encloaks you. You are dead. You have mastered 11% of this adventure. You have been drinking Kasteel blonde 2004.
