3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cL bottle as Kasteel Triple / 11% / bottled 03/29/07. Aroma is a bit sweet, spice, light fruit and a hint of burnt sugar. Slightly orange gold color with a significant white head. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is slightly petroleum with sweet malt, a little sharp, peppery spice, and finally some yeast. The finish is dry, with some herbal hop notes. The alcohol is ever present, and the flavors are not strong enough to submerge it properly. It’s not burning, just always there. The malt liquor of Belgian ale?

Golden, slightly hazy body, with minimal head. Aroma is sweet (bubblegum), fruity (apricot) and slightly spicy/yeasty. Flavor is sweet bubblegum, spice, but still fairly well balanced. The alcohol is nicly warming for the most part, but it asserts itself at the swallow, causing a moderate burn.

Golden with a small white head. Yeasty aroma with an earthy touch. Dryish yeasty flavour with notable alcohol. Technically well balanced with well hidden alcohol, it’s just not my kind of beer

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours clear golden with a small very white creamy head - low duration. Aroma is pleasantly bready malts, some yeast and lightly vinious. A bit of exotic fruit notes as well. Quite high carbonation, but still quite creamy palate. Super sweetness, and very soft feel. Lots of chewy malts, light fruitiness and well-balanced alcohol. Good yeast tones as well.
