3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2005 Only slight grapefruitaroma. Strong hopbitter taste with a bit of citrus. Duvel-clone, but with less aroma, taste, complexity and power.
Other bottle-type, other label, other breweryname (Liefmans Breweries), but the recipe is probably the same. Very blonde, this Duvel imitation. Soft chalky lemon-like aroma. Flowery, hoppy, honey-like flavor with lime. Dryish with just a bit of fruity sweetness. Not bad, but Duvel is better.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ Belgisk Bryg, Cph.
Pours pale yellow, good deal of bubbles. Small, frothy white head nice duration. Aroma is a bit metallic, some yeastiness and biscuity malts. Light citrusy. Fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely sweet, good maltiness. Still a lingering off-note of metal. Rather sweet and the metal doesn’t do it any favours.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at From The Vine monthly beer tasting Oct 13th, 2003: Hazy yellow/gold color with a medium thick white head and thin lacing. Aroma of spice, clove and yeast. Fairly crisp with a bitter character and flavors of wheat, pepper, fruit and a little alcohol. The finish is very carbonated. I really was not too impressed with this one.
