3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In bottle at home. Pours a dark golden colour with a thick, lasting white head. Aroma of honey, biscuity malt, hibiscus flowers and alcohol. Similar flavours and nicely bitter with heavy carbonation and a chewy mouth-feel. A bitter meady finish. Really interesting with a dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden with a medium white head that leaves intense lacing. Nose is of peppery alcohol, spices and slight yellow fruits. Classic De Dolle. Taste is pretty much completely dry, gives out some nice pears and more alcohol. Body is medium and carbonation moderately low. Alcohol is felt at each level but sometimes this is the only thing you need. It leaves the mouth dry and the drinker happy. Overall this is pretty much a lighter (in body) Dulle Teve, not sure which I prefer but these crazy brewers sure know how to please!

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from 03/2014. Aroma: As sweet as you’d expect with both honey and cane sugar, but well balanced with floral notes and fruity esters such as pineapple and pear. Appearance: Murky caramel colored body with a huge light tan head that settles into a firm cap. Flavor: Wowzers… an unyielding explosion of fruity, yeasty sweetness up front. This is stiff stuff; you feel every bit of that 10%. Dries out comparatively well and leaves a lingering dry floral impression. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, effervescent carbonation, bitter/astringent finish. Overall: This was too harsh for me. I know the description says not to keep it "eternally," but I can’t help but think a few years might calm this down a bit.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
25cl cellared bottle from 1989. Poirs a clear datk golden with a vanishing head. Round balanced aromas of caramel, fig, a bit chocolate and reminder to Stille Nacht of the same era - kept in the same conditions. Amazing aromas! Taste has a flatter co2 profile than it's superior Xmas sister and offers a wonderful unique palate experience. Stunning aroma treat, because of the unique Rodenbach yeast.
