3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The third De Dolle brew of the evening and one of the most original beers I've had the pleasure of sipping. Poured a burnt orange color with plenty of sediment and a creamy white head. Caramel, toast, and cheerios in the aroma- a hint of urine? Also some rubbing alcohol or Band-aid tones. Very interesting flavor- alcohol, caramel, honey, chocolate, oranges, some woodiness and a hint of banana. Lively carbonation.

Massive sweetness from the nose, like a glass of honey with sugars poured on top. Taste is similar, one-dimesional sugary treat. Belly warming alcohol apparent after first swallow. After reading the other reviews, I wonder if this beer is past it's prime and has lost it's balance or complexity. If you like sweet sugary beers, this ones for you, but I enjoy and expect more going on. I'll try this agian if I ever see it.

really sweet hoppy scent going on here, very cloudy amber color with large chunks of yeast - with a nice layer of thin head, VERY effervescent, too sweetly flavored, smooth creamy flavor, but way too sweet

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange gold color with a HUGE cloudy head and was still huge all the way to the end. Aroma is lightly hoppy with a citrus spice character, very nice. Flavor is sweet with candi sugar with a well hidden alcohol background. Finishes smooth and zesty with carbonation. Overall this is a great strong tripel, I love it.

Pours a light and cloudy gold, lots of head and carbonation. Pleasing aromas of candy and citrus. Very yummy fruit flavors (pears.) Very carbonated palate with a slight alcohol finish. Definately glad I can get De Dolle here now.

This one gets points just for the funny label art. A very cloudy and pale amber orange in the pour with a huge craggy head, that totally has a mind of its own. It dissipates quickly but leaves a nice residue on top. Lots of fruit in the aroma that follow into the taste, lots of peaches and pears with delightful citrusy sweet aromas at every turn. The finish is extremely dry and slightly bittersweet, very very good!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Bottled] An unclear red/orange beer with a beutiful though collapsing head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of peach. The flavor is also sweet malty with notes of oranges, peaches, coriander, yeast, and alcohol prickling the tongue. It ends on a fruit rich dryness with a hint of bitterness. It has a great palate for a beer of 7% ABV. But it has too much yeast flavor for my liking.

Whats with the label? Looks like a silktork user pic :) Muddy burnt orange in color, hazy with mad head. Aroma of barnyard, alchohol, yeast. Full, rich flavor, candy sweet taste, a bit too sweet in the finish....too much candy sugar, slightly dry finish.

Bottle, purchased for the cool-ass rabbit. H-U-G-E head that foamily dissipates. Excellent sweetness in the nose, with prominent alcohol. Nice pear/apple flavor that nicely develops into a sweet and scotchlike flavor in the finish. Nice!!
