Finally got to use my cool Kasteel glass. Great glass. Average beer. Poured murky brown with no appreciable head. Aroma was slightly vinous. Some fruit notes. Light mouthfeel. The flavor was unimpressive. Some sweetness and some spice. So-so.

On draft at the Abbey. Absolutely delicious - rich fruity (pears?) ale. Alcohol "heat" is absent, but three of these sent me for a loop.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Very light slightly hazy golden color. Sort of spicey fruit aroma. Spicey lemon hoppiness with some fruits. The big alcohol is very well hidden.... you can tell its there, but not much.

zach8270 (3217) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 [bottle - Great European Beerfest 8, Sharp Edge Tavern - East Liberty, PA] Poured a deep gold color with a thin tan head. Potent aroma of yeast, fruits, malt and alcohol. Good sweet yeasty and biscuit taste with fruit and malt in the backbone and a slightly spicy finish.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 26, 2004
Very nice golden color with a thin head. Aroma of spices and yeast, maybe fruit too. Nice spicy, sweet and yeasty flavors. Very good beer but not as good as the brown Kasteelbier.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2004
On tap. Poured a light golden in color with virtually no head. Spicy, fruity and yeasty aromas. Sour, fruity and spicy tasting. For 11%, alchohol well hidden.

Cornboy (424) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2004
It had a slight sour nose with a yeast aroma following. Pours golden. Was a bit sweeter than the nose led you to believe. The 11% is hidden well in this little bottle. Finishes with a nice spicy tingle.

sabbac (3) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 1, 2004 does not count
Amazing flavor, sweet but spicy. minimal bitterness, and very smooth. The finish is mild, but the alcohol sneaks up on you.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 27, 2004
UPDATED: APR 25, 2007 Dark copper color with creamy off white head. Aroma of banana, apple and spice. Taste is a bit sweet and the alcohol hits you right in the middle of the class. Fantastic. Re-rate 12/04. I dont see how du Chateau Triple Blonde is the same stuff as the blonde on the site. This 3/99 bottle is yellow with a light malty taste. Still very good yeah but a way different beer.

Cerveza fuerte de color dorado muy oscuro. De muy alta graduacion (11%) y bastante espuma. Sabor agradable, intenso y afrutado.
