3.29/5  rDev -13.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

APPEARANCE - Pours opaque light brown, with a one-finger head that dissipates in about a minute. A little lacing.

SMELL/AROMA - Herbaceous, very sweet, piney.

TASTE - Quite sweet and mildly piney. Lacks ale bitterness. ABV not well hidden.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE - Not much carbonation, viscous and syrupy.

OVERALL - I really like Imperial IPAs better than Tripels. This one is cloyingly sweet and a bit too boozy for me.

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.

330 ml. bottle. Pours a deep golden colour, with a medium head that fades quickly, leaving a small lace. Semell of apricots, banana, clove, floral, honey., cloves. Surprinsingly medium to light boyd, I expected more froma Kasteel on the palate. Taste of apricots, citrus, honey and full bodied wine, the kind of sherry or manzanilla, or oloroso.
