Bottled at Rich O's: Poured a cloudy orange/yellow with a huge rocky meringue head. Quite effervescent. Has a sweet finish with a light fruity taste and the usual Belgian ale flavors. Good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Straw yellow color, slilghtly cloudy, with a thick white foamy head. Aroma is very tripel-like; yeasty, sweet, bright and crisp, with bananna and orange notes, honey, and nutmeg. Flavor is pretty sweet, with lots of honey, especially in the finish, with an alcohol base threading itself through the aroma and flavor. A somewhat unique brew, definitely worth having.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange golden body, frothy white head. Characteristic De Dolle aroma, very spicy and peppery with fruit and alcohol tones. Flavor is also very spicy and tart, white pepper, coriander, fruit, yeast and hops. Another good beer from De Dolle, but you really have to be in that certain De-Dolle-mood when drinking it.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light hazy copper-gold, huge, clumpy white head that clings to the glass. Nose nicely yeasty, loads of banana-ish esters, good spice as well. Alcohol is very noticeable, overly so for something under 9%. Good spiciness, yeastiness is there, odd, somewhat medicinal finish, kind of an odd honey sweetness mixed with candy sugars.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The cap comes off with authority. Great head from the pour, very tightly packed bubbles uniformally spaced, i likes. Licorice aroma, kind of strange, but an overall good taste, great beer.

first thing first, i love the label! hazy caramel golden color. in my glass there is about 3/4" of the beer and about 4" of head. i can smell clove and a myriad of other spices, some alcohol, but not that much, quite perfumey as well. i can feel the alcohol burn, and taste the yeast immediately, there is an initial honey sweetness that isn't overwhelming, and the slight alcohol burn is there throughout. the honey quickly gives way to some sort of fruit, but i can't detect what it is. still, a pretty tasty beer.
