4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured a large bright white, rocky and retentive head that lasted to the end. The color is a bright yellow color. It is a little hazy with a good showing of effervescence. Smell is fruity, earthy, and citrus. Taste is sweet, fruity and with a dry peppery finish. It has a great balance of tastes, mouth feel, and a crisp finish. A very distinctive character.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale straw yellow with a mountainous fluffy white head. Chunks of lace left in it’s wake.
Aroma is kind of grainy, kind of yeasty.
Flavor is kind of lemony, kind of apple, sweet/tart,
A crisp refreshing brew. The alcohol kind of sneaks up on you, the 8.5 isn’t real noticed until you about finish the bottle.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is wheat beer-like, fruity and estery, sweetish hops and spice. Taste is strong, slightly alcoholic after swallow, and a weird sweet-but-dry aftertaste. This is a very good, strong, yet refreshing beer. Interesting mouthfeel.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2005 8 May 2004 - Fruity pear malt aroma. Hazy golden colour, white head and excellent lacing. Light sweet malt, intense fruit complexity, slight pear and wheat flavour. Long lingering taste and full bodied. A beer that is light but yet disguises the alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m surprised I have gone this long and not rated this one. Light yellow color with a billowing white head... fantastic appearance. Yeasty aroma with a hint of vanilla. Light and spicy taste. Grassy notes, pleasant finish with a hint of warming alcohol. Not very complex, but probably one of the most drinkable of the belgians. This one goes down smooth, but can kick your ass.

This brew pours an amazing translucient golden color with a perfect tall white head that stays forever in my duvel glass. Aroma has banana, hops, sweetness, and some good spice to it. Taste is very lively with lots of carbonation bringing it to life. A very smooth mouthfeel with a very good balance. Some good amounts of spice in the aftertaste and good finishing hops.
