3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
cloudy golden color,tall white head again as with the others.Mild malt aroma,slightly sweet with hints of fruit and spice as well.Very nice flavor better then the other brews i've had from these guys.mild semi-sweet taste,hoppy and it also has some mild flavors of fruit and perfectly spiced.The honey is just detectable but mild,the after taste comes through as spicey and fruity with a slight hop bitterness that fades to leave the spice alone on your palate.This is a fine brew IMO and well worth having a few more around for later.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(On tap)I don't know what to think of this beer. It's typical a Dolle-brew; very strange. This time I didn't like it much. Spicy smell, some peppers, yeasty, perhaps some hops in the aroma. Good lookin brew; cloudy yellow/orange coloured, lasting head. Taste is bitter, sour, very spicy, some citrus. Moderate bitter, dry palate.

Mouth tingling carbonation with an attractive head. Malt character is smooth and clean, nice hop tickle and finishes with a warm honey alcohol note. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thick massive head. Dominates the glass. Big bubbles, good lacing, and lasts for a while. Apricot bandage smell. Maybe some vanilla. Has a cloudy orange look. A type of rubber-plastic taste, which comes fully through as unfiltered yeast. Very doughy like bread dough. Interesting: dark and heavy with a bit of Belgian lightness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Okay, I have been hesitant to buy this due to the crazy looking bunny on it. Wasn't sure if it was okay to drink if after Easter without the bunny coming after to me. Well the head on this beer was huge, to say the least. What little beer I could see under the massive foamy white head that at least drifted down quickly(leaving spider like lace)was a hazy gold color. An good amount of carbonation was present, which would stand to reason giving the head. The aroma is very fruity, with elements of hops, banana, caramel and bread. A flavor of hops and cirtrus with some clove present with a touch of pepper. A touch astrigent in the finish. Not a bad beer, but the aroma almost leaves you expecting more.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2003 version, 7% ABV. Cloudy orange/brown color, enormous frothy lasting head. Spicy and yeasty aroma. Taste is also yeasty i guess, spicy, cane sugar, hint of honey, little alcohol. Bit dry palate. Not the best brew by De Dolle.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Extremely full-mouth-feel...too much carbonation - huge, foamy head seems non-stop and sticks to the sides of the glass. Cloudy, dark golden body. Spicy and citrus aroma, as is the flavor. Drinkable, but only very slowly. Too harshly carbonated. A dry palate like strong champagne.

I poured as carefully as I could, and still the frothy head overtook the top of the glass, a foamy mountain begging to be demolished by my sips - smells like yeasty candy - the taste? the only way to describe it is liquid cake, complete with frosting - a little alcohol burn near the back, but otherwise a sweet, yeasty journey into Wonkaville - if I had to imagine the taste of fizzy lifting drink, this would be it.
