I live in Florida where a premium beer is Budweiser! I probably rate good beers higher than reality but Kasteel exceeds FL standards. It's drinkable and not overly filling. Nice balance of fruit flavors. Going from drinking good beer up North to scalvaging a good one when the ship comes in, ahh a good day!

Very heavy, not well balanced. Tough after taste.

Pours a slightly hazy gold with one finger thick fizzy white head, fades to a thin ring, a few dots on the glass. Smell: pear, dried apricot, golden apple, clove and booze notes, sweet with spicy hopping not making too much of an impression. Taste: pear, soft golden delicious apple, clove, pepper, grape and coriander in the finish, vanilla-ish booze. Lighter-medium and slick, growing carbonation midsip then ending in a sticky finish cut by clove. A bit messy and boozy but pretty tasty overall.

Bottle to go from World of Beer. Dated 2012/04/07, so clearly been around a bit. Pours slightly hazy golden color with a one finger quickly receding head. Aroma is a bit pungent with massive notes of booze and rotten fruit, honey, pears, smells incredibly sweet. Flavor is overly sweet and funky booze pears and honey, not much else going on here, banana and yeast esters, a hint of spice. Heavy on the palate with very high carbonation. I think 11% is just way too much here. Tough to choke down.
