4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hazy copper with a huge frothy white head. Yeasty nose. Flavour has honey, flowers, candy, straw, hay, plums, light stingy alcohol. Feels pretty light for the abv and the alcohol is well concealed but helps to balance the sweetness. Medium body, oily texture, high carbonation. The carbonation is a bit much, I think, but I guess it could get cloying if it was lower. One of the best paasbiers out there.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle bought some place I can’t remember. Pours golden with a huge frothy offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some soapy trace on the glass. Smell is malty and phenolic with biscuits, cereal, hay, ripe red apples, dark grapes, pepper corns, dark honey, lemon zest, orange zest, caramel and hints of marzipan. Taste is sweet, malty and tiny phenolic with crackers, cereal, caramel, marzipan covered baked pears, apple skins, hay, dry soil, pepper corns, St Johns wort, orange zest, honey and hints of caraway and cinnamon. Mouthfeel is soft, round, silky and near full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet, tiny sour, tiny bitter, fruity, malty and phenolic with bread, cereal, honey, sheet metal, unripe pears, orange zest and St Johns wort. Solid solid stuff...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at home (Feb 2013). Pours a golden yellow to amber with a huge frothy white head. Aroma of sweet honey and fruits, yeast and flowery hops. Sweet floral, fruity, taste with a dry, hoppy bitter, finish. A nice brew, but probably nicer in spring time, or maybe even with Eastern..

A solid ale. Pours a murky orange with sediment. Very nice aromas of sweet apple and caramel. Nice Belgian candy flavors with a good hop finish. No alcohol presence. Great stuff!

Lots of carbonation in this one. Poured into a tulip, have had to slow down the pour as I’ve already got a 4 finger head with another quarter still left in the 330ml bottle. The aromas are of yeast, pears, honey and hay. The taste is honey, pears, citrus and pine with a light alcohol burn in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and leaves a dry, bitter and hoppy coating on the tongue. Altogether, another very good beer from De Dolle but a bit over-carbonated.

Une bonne bière dans l'ensemble mais pas la meilleure de chez De Dolle. Pointe d'amertume du houblon.
