Bottle. 2003. Hazy yellow / orange color with a huge frothy good lacing fully lasting white head. Aroma is fruity, lemon, acidic. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and light acidic and bitter with a average duration and a very good balance. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Very nice ;o))

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2007 33 cL bottle (labelled as Kavijaks). Pours hazy orange with a finger thick white creamy/crispy head. Aroma is light fruity, a slight leather note. Heavy carbonation. Flavour is sweet, flowery hops, there is a mild smoke note appearing before going into a long lasting bitterfinish. The smoke is blending in with a peach fruit note. I don’t like the blend :( but appreciate that this is wellbrewed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2006 A hazy dark orange beer with an enormous white lasting head (atleast when drunk from a tulip). The aroma is rather spicy - I can’t pick up that much, but yeast, corriander, and caraway. The flavor is sweet and rather complex containing notes of honey, oranges, corriander, and other for me unrecognizable spices. The end is both sweet and bitter combined with the alcohol tingling the tongue. The palate is good - especially considering it weighing in at only 6% ABV.
My rating for the Kavijaks edition: Hazy orange with a huge beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of appricot and lighter notes of yeast. The flavor is sweet spicy with coriander standing out, but also with a light fruity touch. 6/3/7/3/13

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Orange golden, hazy or perhaps rather murky, with a gigantic head that leaves a good lacing as it slowly collapses. Very flowery nose and citric touches throughout. But it’s the bitter hops that completely dominates this - it’s very, very hoppy indeed. With some late sweetness. Another unusual beer from De Dolle - but far from their best. 300198

Bottled (as De Dolle 2002 Museum Bier). Hazy pale yellow colour with huge white foamy head. Citric malty and yeasty flavour. Witbier like, but with strong alcoholic flavour. Citric, bitter aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Hazily orange. Livley, firm head.
Grassy and very fruity. Sugary and rounded, notes of citrus and lightly sparkling mouthfeel. Good, but less pronounced than other De Dolles.

bottle at home ... Golden orange ... huge loose foam head ... sweet sharp hoppy fruit ... juicy hop resins ... quite fruity ... Masssive bitter background ... and an odd touch of saltyness.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep blond color; giant thick head. Very nice aroma, spicy, some malt, cellar, classic Belgian. The taste is malty, but it’s spoiled by what for me it’s a too high bitterness, unmatched in Belgian beers. The final as well is characterized by this dry bitterness.
Earlier Rating: 7/25/2002 Total Score: 4
Golden colour, with a magnificent head and a beautiful lace. Pleasant spicy hop aroma, sour & fruity. Good mouth sensation, sweet in the front and bitter (tart) in the end, passing through a well married sourness. Quite good malt in the taste and hop in the palate, pretty long and dry.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden/apricot color, very lasting white head. Grapefruit and citrus aroma, woody and with a dry feeling. Flavor brings hops and citrus, grassy with metallic notes, spicy and with some fruits. Really bitter finish.
