2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle into tumbler. Pours a murky toilet water brown with a small fast-collapsing head; leaves a ring of foam. Aroma is a little phenolic with some overripe fruit thrown in; there’s a hint of vanilla, too. Taste is...odd. It’s lightly sweet with no bitter or sour notes; grainy. Carbonation is too low, has a thin body. Finish is abrubt. Not very good. I think it may be past its prime.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle courtesy of Anndiesel. Hazy orange-brown, thin beige head. Sweet vanilla amber aroma. Sweet and sugary, rather mild and mellow carbonation. Somewhat watery for the style, simple and subdued. Funky Belgian yeast goes a long way in carrying this one. Straightforward and enjoyable, but rather insipid compared to it’s peers.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a snifter. Angelique pours a rich mahogany, with a solid white head that retains at about a quarter of an inch, which leads to nice lacing. Aromas are of baked apples, nutmeg, clove, and some strong alcohol tones. Tastes are of fall fruits, apples, pears, figs, raisins, clove and nutmeg. High carbonation, with a smooth and clean mouthfeel. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. [thanks after4ever]
Clear red-brown pour with a small, creamy, off-white head that fizzes a little. Aroma has nuts, caramel, Belgian sugar, light red berries, some mild oxidation. Medium carbonation, fine creamy if a bit light mouthfeel. Flavour has firm milky chocolate, some raisins, esters, caramel. Centre feels slightly oxidized before the firmly bitter malty finish sets in. Simple but very nice anyways.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Julig smak, balanserad mellan sötma och beska trots att den är dubbelhumlad. ?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a dark coppery mahogany with a lot of sediment and a decent pale tan head. Aroma is fruity and a little sweet with a malty underpinning. Fruity, slightly woody flavor has a malty undertone and a hint of caramel. Texture is quite smooth and just a little tingly. Overall, worthy of at least a try.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Good full body. Fruit, cinnamon, sweet flavors. My first venture into a dubbel Belgian and at 3 bucks a bottle, it’s not bad. Great 750ml option.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
January 2011. From a 750 ml. corked bottle. Poured deep amber with a tan head. Fruity notes mixed with caramel, honey and spice. It’s a good beer, but will get lost amongst other better choices.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2011 750 ml bottle- Pours somewhere between muddy brown and ruby red with a thin white head, aroma is belgian yeast and some banana. The flavor is sweet and candy like, much better tasting than the mystique, I think this is the best tasting of the three I’ve tried so far ( euphorique mystique and now this). The body is a little thin and watery and there is really no lingering flavors, its like after you drink it, you immediately forget what it tastes like. Forgettable and drinkable!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Pours a hazy brown with golden highlights. Initially a large light brown head forms, but doesn’t stay very long. Aroma is quite sweet, with caramel, bananas, and esters. Flavours are bananas and caramel, estery and lightly spicy, with a bit of harsh alcohol in the finish. This came across more like a dunkelweizen than anything, and not a very good one at that.
