2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear golden color with a thick white head. Ordinary aroma and flavor of coriander, citrus and yeast, feels a lot like a boring tripel. The palate is light and creamy and the carbonation is lively. It’s not very entertaining.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very pale hazey yellow with a sweet fruity (mango not citrus) aroma. Flavour is maltier than its colour would have you believe and alcohol is there in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light golden amber, fine pearling carbonation, big fluffy lacing head.
Tropical fruit and mineralic yeast aroma.
Harsh phenolic entry, fermented fruit, chocolaty notes , earthy mineralic, spicy. Strikes me as unharmonic.
Velvety mouthfeel, light pearling.
Old fruit aftertaste.
Now this was disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another from my escipades in belgium(2002). Aroma is apricots and some sort of sweetish funkiness, though not that bad. Taste is orange peel with spices and a sweetish finish, with alcohol having a wee say all though the beer. Not bad maybe needs more aging or needs to be drunk fresh, but have nothing to compare with.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2005 Yellow colour emerging from below the huge white Duvel-like head. Delicious spicy and green apples aroma. Also yeasty. Flavour starts with soft malty sweetness, gradually drying up to a finish with yeasty notes.Very fizzy. It looks like a Duvel, but it tastes more like a confused blond,. The alcoholic warmth reveals its strength, though.
