"Kastaar is an authentic beer, balancing on a harmony of taste and colour, between pale and dark, between sweet and bitter and spirited, subtile and complex. The ideal refreshment because of his lower alcohol content and his fruity taste and flavour. A real K-Star from our scale, a strong fellow (meaning of Kastaar)full of allurement and very charming, with his specific Kastaarglass it has brought us a lot of pleasure during serveral decennia.

tderoeck (10682) - Gent, - NOV 19, 2012
5/II/2012 33cl bottle late 80s vintage @ vintage tasting Brugs Bierfestival - BB: n/a (2012-1224) Thanks to JimRittchart for the sample!

Note: from lost notes earlier this year, found again!
Clear dark orange beer, pretty big aery big bubbled off-white to beige head, pretty stable, non adhesive. Aroma: dry, cardboard, dusty, maybe a little spicy, definitely off. Taste: about the same as the smell. The beer has died over this time. If I ever come across a fresh one, I’ll rerate it.

vinckebosch (2) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2017 does not count
A cloudy golden beer, medium full body with an average carbonation, fruity aroma and a long aftertaste. Drinking temperature around 8 degrees celcius, consumed at home.

nathanvc (804) - Brugge, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2017
Pours hazy yellow/golden with a lasting, foamy, white head. The aroma contains fruits (orange), hops, spices and yeast. It tastes medium fruity sweet and light hoppy bitter with a yeasty, bit dry finish. Medium body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation. Totally inoffensive but good in its own way.

Ysok02 (1920) - Mons, BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2017
Robe blonde, fine mousse crémeuse. Nez houblon, malt, farine, très simple. Bouche banale, courte, milieu de bouche aqueux, finale courte. Bière sans intérêt.

Rubin77 (2752) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 3, 2017
F: big, snow-white, poor to average retention. C: deep gold, hazy. A: malt, orange, herbal, fruity, yeast, apple. T: malt, orange peels, fruity, peach, a bit spicy, light soapy, yeasty, white sugar, medium body, medium carbonation, nothing special but drinkable and not bad, 33cl bottle from Carrefour market – St. Michel @ Etterbeek, Brussels.

Salmaneser (175) - BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2017
33 cl bottle @ home. Pale yellow colour with an orange shine, and a lasting white head. Sweet and yeasty aroma, full of carbonation. Taste is bitter with some sourness, and the palate is a bit watery.

Syfher (516) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2016
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass; from the fridge. Usual pils, with nice taste and aroma. Nothing more to say

kraddel (9338) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear blonde, Ok to small whtie head. Smell is sweet,malty but also got some different characters I don’t really recognize. Taste is intense, yet elegant yeastyness with fruity aspects ( not overripe fruit ) a fine fruity hoparoma as well that pairs nothing less than perfectly with the rather aromatic yeast. Light level of bitterness, yet the bitterness is there. Lovely in balance. Even though tripels will never be my favorite beerstyle, this one deffinately is worthy of being called very good !

ForlornHope (547) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a deep golden colour with a white head that soon disappears. Very slight aroma of orangey hop. Taste is sweet to start, then slightly bitter. Slight citrus taste, thin finish. OK at best.

sic1314 (4773) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2015
Poured light amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of sweet fruit and light Belgian yeast. Light body, flavour is medium sweet, medium bitter.

Icedwarf (1886) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2015
Licht troebel geel bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hopppig met een ondertoon van zuur fruit, citrus en koriander. Smaak blijft lang hangen.
