3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy deep straw and slight white head. Could be better for a Belgian. Heavy DMS (corn) aroma, but also has clove spicy, wheat malt, and a light fruity aroma. Cloves, alcohol, and wheat malt pretty well balanced, finishes dry and hoppy; very little fruitiness, but very spicy. Higher carbonation leads to lighter than actual M/F, and is also slightly astringent. This beer was much better on tap than out of the bottle, I can tell you that. I was impressed by the draught version, but the bottle leaves something to be desired IMHO. It's not a bad beer by any stretch of the imagination, but I expected more from this one.

Dark yellow with a huge soapy white head that quickly faded. No lacing. Smelled of pear and banana with a slight hint of citrus. The taste was pear and vanilla overlaid with nutmeg. Alcohol presence notable only as a soothing warmth. Not the best Belgian, but not the worst either.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light... gold color. Very sweet, too much alchohol taste. Very complex taste overall with fruit, nut, and something toasty. But not as yummy as the pink elephants are cute.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
a light golden color with a thick head. Very similar to Duvel except in the aftertaste, the only difference between the two beers that I see/taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a hazy golden peach, with a large, solid white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma is yeasty, fruity (apples and pears), slight peppery spice in the back. Flavor is sweet, lot's of apple, some mild spiciness comes in the middle to the end. Medium-full bodied, dry ending.

light orange aroma, cloudy amber hue with a large frothy head, yeasty, citrusy charachter, bitter acidic finish. If you have 2 bottles of this in a row the alcohol will definitley get to you.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2003 Suprised to find anyone that didn't enjoy this. Aroma is definately nectarines (not peaches) with the smallest amount floral hop and of volatiles. Poures a slightly opaque straw yellow with a big fluffy head. Flavour is slightly sweet with a small amount of malt and an INCREDIBLE aftertaste of nectarines to match the aroma. Magnificent carbonation and wonderful full mouthfeel. Given enough of it I may seek out the fabled pink elephants myself.
