4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brown with some orange hue. Pillowy,lasting head which leaves great lacing. Aroma of sweet bread,toffee,house yeast,and light flower. Lively carbonation makes this seem a little less hefty than it is. Good flavor balance of fruity,sweet malt with underlying yeast,and earth flavors. Little damp wood as well. Lingering sweet,tart,and more of a hop presence than expected. Pretty dry. Delicate,and dangerously drinkable. Seems it was gone in just a few gulps. I love De Dolle

Not too much aroma, but generally yeasty. Lots of phenols in the taste, some bitter and a touch of sour notes, grapefruit, citrus peel. Starts sweet, finishes bitter and boozy. Lot of alcohol taste. I wasn’t super impressed.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours opaque dark brown, nearly black, with a gigantic three-finger beige head that lasts a long time. Thin layer of fine yeast sediment is present at the bottom. With that huge head, it brings aromas of fresh apples (honeycrisp), baking spice, roasted malts, & some caramel. Arrives spicy with a mixture of apples (sweet and tart). Malty & roasty middle. Finishes candy sweet (chocolate/caramel) and of course with a kick of alcohol. Lively on the palate without carbonation taking over; medium-bodied, finished long, and surprisingly hot with alcohol at 9%. It doesn’t hide the ABV that well and certainly tastes/feels like it’s in the range of 12-13%.

Draft. Orange/pineapple, caramel malt, and light hay aroma. Golden yellow with nice head. Very sweet orange/pineapple, caramel malt, and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Nice body and balance. Excellent - not sure how I missed this for so long.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap into a wineglass showing red wine with a finger of clean white foam.
The nose is tart and acetic with hints of blackberries.
The palate is lightly carbonated and medium bodied. Very light flavors of dark fruit (plums, blackberries, cassis) and a light bitterness on the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cherry wood brown with huge 2 finger lite tan head. Sticky lacing lingers for a long time. A little cloudy from a crappy pour.
Initial aroma reminds me a very watered down Supplication. Next is dry slightly floral and pungent ... Nuttiness fades to an almost dry amaretto aroma. Pepper low coriander and finishes with an unexpected Belgian yeast spiceness and maybe a little bit of tartness. Very unique and flowing flavors .... spices and fruit meld to yeast fruitiness ending with a dry tart finish.
