2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
26th June 2013
Craft Clerkenwell Tasting. Hazy gold bee, little white head. Palate is light and pretty dry. Fine carbonation. Fine dry malt. Very light touch of cognac. Little yeasty bitterness. Dry finish. Disappointing! But then I’m not a fan of the Kasteels. Yeasty dry and the cognac is bordering on wimpy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a dense, off-white head that lasts and leaves lacings. It’s malty and sweetish on the nose, with alcohol, dried fruits and some resiny hops. The flavor is quite sweet, with pale malts, white sugar, dried apricots and some bitterness. Full body and a soft carbonation, quite high level though. Lasting sugary and bitter finish with a herbal touch. Too warming this one, but far from bad. 140830

Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell - big thanks to Ken for busting out the boozy Belgian beers! Pours clearish, yellow-gold with a light, white cream head. Nose of pale and bready malts, light honey, ripe fruits. Medium sweet flavor with moderate alcohol, light dry wood, some citrus, bread, yeast. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish with more yeasty and doughy pale malts, some lemony citrus. Not altogether bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Corked bottle, 4558 of 9000. Pours a huge head. Raspberry, vanilla and hints of oak in the aroma. Malty sweetish, slightly alcoholic flavor with the slightest hints of cognac and vanilla. Hints of peach. Pleasant, but the effect of cognac barrel aging should be more noticeable.
