Kasteel Donker shows where the line between beer and wine can get a little blurry. Pours a murky brown color with red highlights, practically no head but there was a good amount of lacing. Smell is really sweet and vinous. Taste is the same way. Lots of dark vinous fruits in a variety of flavors burst out from the start. Really sweet but there wasn't much of a malty sweetness. Alcohol comes in and has quite a kick with lots of flavor. There's a strong Belgian yeast element in here that melds well with the alcohol. Finish is dry and a bit weak for my liking. Becomes too syruppy sweet after a while. Needs more effervescence to offset the fruits. Decent but not the greatest Belgian I have had.
