Belgische Bieren - Belgian Beers

 

KASTEELBIER BLOND

 

This is a live beer, and since secondary fermentation takes place in the bottle, there is a relatively high amount of carbonation.

 

This is also a beer style that will cellar well (if stored at appropriate temperatures) and it will actually improve with age.

 

The incredible fact about this beer is that it has a 15 year shelf life! (Forget those 'born on' dates!)

 

This is a big beer with 11% Alcohol, a big number, but the alcohol is not so overwhelming.

This beer is actually quite easy to drink. Dare I say it? It can even be guzzled.

 

 The nose has a honey-malt sweetness. The palate is malty, sweet, filled with butterscotch and complex hop flavors, mellowed by a nutty, vanilla edge.
