Prune maltiness is enticing in the aroma but just a little too raw and sticky on the palate. Hearty and warming with alcohol more noticeable than in the tripel.

dark amber color with a thick head that slowly dissipates. The first thing I noticed about the beer while pouring war the fruity aroma. Taste has hints of raisins and cherries. Almost like someone has mixed Lindemans Kriek Lambic with a Belgian Ale. Good, but I have had better.

Deep rusty brown colored. Big thick creamy tan head, rolling dense foamy, beautiful! Hints of ripe fruits and toasted barley. A mild vinuous character. Green apples followed by some deep caramel & subtle milk chocolate malt notes and of course theres the alcohol as well. All that in just the nose. tastes of alcohol, which stands quite proud when the beer is too chilly. THen the complexity kicks in full gear. Some caramel notes among the loads of very ripe fruits. Maybe some yeasty hints in there as well. A VERY warm finish, wih notes of flaked barley on the roof. I'm going to share a 750 of this with people more often.

Smells like mincemeat...slightly spicy, with apples, nuts and raisins. Love the sticky brown sugar-like quality that accompanies the fruity aspect.

Aroma of brown sugar,spices and alcohol then got mildly fruity as it warmed up.Sweet flavors of pinapple,raisins,candy sugar,cherries and a touch of chocolate with slight hop bitterness towards the finish.The complexity of this beer suprised me.

Kasteelfreak (341) - Fallbrook, California, USA - DEC 29, 2002
Nice aroma. Smells like Kasteel. Lightly sween toffe-raisin flavor. Up to that point it’s great. It goes downhill with the finish. Finish is burnt and bitter. Bottle did not have any pop when opened, but pour produced a nice head. Bad bottle?

Light aroma, inviting when discernable. The flavor is wonderful caramel with spice. The hint of sourness works well with the creamy palate. Not extremely complex but terribly enjoyable. I would buy this again.

Bottle. Dark red in color with a tan head. A sour red fruit aroma with some hints of sweetness. Malty, acidic, candy, and dark fruits in the flavor.
