Poured into tulip.
Pours clear deep golden to orange with 3-finger white head, recedes to 1-finger in several minutes. Aroma not as intense, yeasts, floral traits, pale malts, vinous. Taste contains tons of alcohol, outshining nuances of the style. It's actually hard to define them.

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.
