Bottle at Congress, Longton. Pours golden. Light spice, some yeast, smooth hop. Pleasant easy drinking gold.

bartlebier (3946) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2017
33cl bb2018, BL sampler 2017-V. - Blond, soft malts as if centrifuged banana milk shake and basic vanilla wheat cake. Intimations of apricot and mainly macro supermarket honey although the drinkability is on point to be not a challenge at all. Quite pointless for its 7%, if/while clean. - If the middle of the road were strewn with pilsner malts and sugar, this spent banana peel would be the result.

Une kasteel qui ne restera pas dans les mémoires par son manque de saveur et de recherche

33 cl bottle purchased @ La caisse de bière. Pas la meilleure de chez Kasteel.

pivnizub (10576) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2017
Bouteille (333ml): Pale golden to golden, lively carbonation, stable and creamy off-white head; mild to moderate sourish-fruity nose, grainy and yeasty-tart aromas well detectable, may traces of bittering hops included; milder sourish-sweetish flavour with a slight bitterness, astonishingly light bodied for a beer of 7%, more tart than soft; more bitter - not hoppy (!) - grainy-fruity finish. From Belgium, but not a masterpiece...

Globalement décevante. Voici en deux mots résumée la Kasteel Blond 7 qui déçoit à plus d’un titre : arômes peu développés (arrière bouche comprise), manque de complexité et équilibre perfectible. La robe blonde d’une limpidité parfaite est néanmoins des plus attrayante. Cependant, malgré une effervescence marquée, la mousse, blanche, nappe tout juste la bière. L’attaque est simple mais agréable sur les céréales, la coriandre et un fond de moût de raisin. L’attaque n’est cependant pas à la hauteur, peu marquée, sur le caramel, le blé et la pêche. La seconde bouche est très linéaire, avec une amertume modérée et une arrière bouche quasi inexistante. La suite s’améliore quelque peu, fait éviter le naufrage pour gagner en arôme (fruité et de miel) et en densité. Le final, présentera quant à lui des notes épicées appréciables. Cependant la longueur est trop courte. L’alcool, pourtant bien présent jusque là et sur une bonne adéquation avec le sucre, ne porte plus assez l’ensemble. Le château ressemble au final davantage à un pavillon de banlieue...plutôt simple et standard.

33cl bottle from beer hawk. Golden colour , not much head, not too sweet for the 7 % alcohol. Taste of bubblegum , slips down nicely, very smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

R4N5H (1166) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2017
33cl bottle from BeerHawk, and poured into a snifter on 31-Dec-2016. Clear pale golden amber in colour with a short lived white head. Aroma of sweet malt, grain, wheat and banana. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is sweet, fruity and with a lot of Belgian yeast. Dry sweet finish with light bitterness. OK.

3.4
RaduPopovici (20) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - DEC 16, 2016
Bottle 330 ml, branded Kasteel glass, in Bucharest at Bistro GUXT. Superb clear golden-orange color. Not much of a head, quickly fading to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and an island in the middle. Some lacing when disappearing. Aroma is biscuits, caramel and fruits (bananas, apricots, pears) with hints of spices (coriander and cloves), orange peel, flowers, some acid hints. Taste is sweet and bitter, with hints of fruits, citrus, flowers and spices. Very well integrated alcohol. Long and intense aftertaste, dry with some sweet, flowery and mineral hints. Medium carbonation and a surprisingly light body for 7% alcohol. O good beer, above average, but it gives me no real reason to say “Wow!”

3.7
Gehbe (442) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - DEC 10, 2016
Clear golden with a medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma of citrus, coriander, zest, candy, hints of clove and a touch of yeasty notes. Tastes light/medium sweet and sour with a very light bitter bite on finish. Light body, high carbonation. Zesty and fizzy, quite nice.
