3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2011 I have not been a big fan of the Dupont beers that I have tried. Sampled on draft at Zeno’s in State College PA this beer poured a very cloudy tan color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is light with banana and bubblegum elements. The flavor starts sweet and fruity with a bit of an alcohol burn and has a tangy fruity finish that turns a bit dry towards the end.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 mL, snifter. Murky amber-orange hue with a tall, rocky, meringue white head. Musky and slightly funky aroma embraces, backlit by a soft floral warmth. Sweet notes of sugared apples. A crisp tone not much unlike freshly pressed linen. Fresh bananas liven the occasion. A dry spice, nutmeg perhaps--and finished by the earthy aroma of a wet, deciduous forest. Flavor is a sublime translation from the aroma; sweet flavors coming up front and a drying, bitter, spicy and funky finish. Medium-full body with a soft texture and lively carbonation.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden yellow tinged with pink when viewed from the right angle (not a right angle). A wrinkled, pillowy duvet of suds stretches over the top. Lots of pils malt in the aroma, very doughy, light evergreen and coridnader/black pepper spiciness. Flavor is lightly doughy and more pepper. Heavy spiciness with some light banana liqueur. High carbonation and a "hot" bitterness make for tingly finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cold. Hazy mellon color with a nice big white creamy head. Big spicy aroma even when cold. Palate is harsh on the mouth while cold, but easier as it warms. Scrapingly dry. Mild fruity/wheaty flavor. Nice stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2005 Tan colored, slightly fruity, high effervescence, slight yet pleasantly bitter aftertaste, and overall well balanced. It smells similar to pilsner urquell, and in taste has a few similarities, but is far superior. It definitely needs appropriate glassware. I lowered my rating a bit after having a second bottle, which I thought unbalanced in its bitterness. Make sure you don’t let this sit too long--it goes flat quick.
