4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle
This has the appearance of Duvel without the meringue head. Clear, yellow with great carbonation. Fluffy white head that disappears over a few minutes leaving a nice lacing. Good yeasty aromas with the usual spices of Belgian Pales- clove and fruit. Good spiciness on the tongue. Crisp and refreshing for a beer approaching 10% ABV. I can see drinking this one through the summer. Close to being a pilsner with the crispness.

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
12oz twist-off bottle. Golden pour. Musty nose of mustard, eggs, and bread. 300lbs of sugar? What was the O.G.? and only 6.7% ABV, strange. A very large batch? Very bold and sharp flavor. Threw me back a bit. Literally. Finishes very dry. A tad too bitter. This beer tastes too much like VOMIT. Dry, bitter, and not palatable.

12oz bottle- Pours a clear golden with a nice full off white head and an aroma of yeast, coriander, cloves, and grass. Taste is of the same with a little coriander and sugars thrown in. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad. The Belgian flavors grow on you and you drink more. Nice brew.
