2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
You know, there is a lot MORE going on in here than in New Glaurus’ Spotted Cow, but it has the same soggy cornflakes malt flavor that I noticed drinking that one recently. Of course, DT also has rollercoaster waves of fruits and spices, but none of it is all that settling. I get off the ride and weave around, trying to get my bearings. Anyone for a good earthy brown ale?

Had to give this high marks in appearance due to the huge carbonated head that it has. Color is orange copper and cloudy, very sweet and yeasty, a decent twist on a Belgian Tripel.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2004 Very sweet, malty aroma. Bits of apple & orange, cidery, yeast. Tangy hops - big aroma. Foamed out of the bottle when opened. Huge frothy off-white lacing head over semi-cloudy light amber beer. Heavy carb but effervescent like sparkling wine. Medium-heavy body. Lots of characteristics of a wheat beer. Sweet, yeasty, can taste alcohol. Slight bitterness to the finish with sweet, nutty-like after.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2008 (on tap) Clear golden triple. nice head. Indeed superb mouthfeel. Spicy & overwhelming.
Rerate. Well.. This one is certainly not a 4.1 as in my previous rating. (Chabged the brew or my taste for beer has changed..) Actually this one is quite disappointing. Aroma is alcoholic, has some caramel malt and yeast. Clear, golden-yellow coloured with a white, lasting head. Taste is sweet, caramel malty with some hoppiness and too alcoholic.

Yeast and citrus aroma. Golden amber, with a creamy white head. Orange, hops flavour with plenty of zing! Great mouthfeel, fine tongue tingle. A really good Belgian Strong Ale!

Well, er, i was guilty of massively overating this, very sweet yeasty belgian character, but quite one dimensional. An average belgian ale.
