3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured hazy copper color with medium off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy citrus tropical and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet & tart flavor with a medium tart finish of moderate duration. Very strange brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Murky golden ale with a quickly dissipating, white head. The bouquet is spicy and herbal with peppery hops. Medium to full-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is a blend of tart and caramely sweet. Finishes tangy and a tad spicy. Age has been kind to this bottle. Thanks go out to darkguardian for sharing!

On tap at Kuhnhenn Winter Solstice Night Two. A so-so Belgian. No aroma, light orange with no head. Some orange taste, a little fruit. A little sour finish. Not too drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle courtesy of mikem409 and shared at the 17th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 1/28/12. Pours a hazy straw color with a thin tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of sweet malts, yeast and an almost corny note, The taste is big tropical fruits, yeast, and bread. Definite canned fruit quality, which I can’t stand. Medium bodied. Disappointed by this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at the brewpub. Clear dark golden pour with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Short stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of peppery yeast and caramel malt. Medium body with flavors of yeast, pepper, wheat and malt. The finish is sweet with a yeast and fruit aftertaste. As a Duvel clone it falls short, but still a decent brew.

Bottle... Poured golden/amber with an off-white head. Not sure what this one was supposed to be. Mostly Belgian yeast spices and esters. Some malt sweetness and light fruits. Honey sweetness, the aroma of cooking jello, pepper spice, and herbal earthiness.
