3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fitting for number 666. Very pale straw coloured beer with a huge lasting head. Big yeasty aroma, apricot/peachy fruit, green apple, black pepper spiciness, and more hoppy aromas than I was expecting, with a hop profile reminiscent of Orval, grassy and herbal. Flavour is quite light and refreshing, yeast, spice, some fruitiness. Ethanol is noticible. Very good, if a little thin-bodied.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2006 Bottle. Clear gold color, soda-like bubbles in a large white head. Nose has some spicy yeast and some fishy vinegar aromas. Flavor is spritzy alcohol and a biting sharp grainy flavor. Very plain nose, but harsh on the tongue and in the finish, with a heavy fuel alcohol coating. Stinging carbonation as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale yellow, hazy. Thick, fast collapsing very white head. Nose of grain, seemingly some wheat too. Very grassy aroma, or unripe fruit. Grainy taste. Sugar-candi dryness, slightly spicey impression. Dry mouthfeel. Alcohol is there, but well masked. Long dry aftertaste. Somehow, and from the very beginning, I've always thought of this beer as of a super-strong Dentergems wit, rather than as a Duvel-competitor. It has characteristics of both, anyway. Like it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from The Epicurean. Pours a hazy shade of intense gold with a big, frothy, white head that lasts even through the repour. The aroma is heavy citrus, some candi sugar and barnyardy funk notes, and floral spiciness. The mouthfeel is lively but not dense, with flavors of spicy florals, citrus, some barnyard, and a dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear yellow body, with slightly hazy effervescent body and a good head. Aroma is spicey with strong yeast dominance. A sweetness becomes prominent and passes over the tongue quickly. Very dry bitter finish with hot alcohol notes.

Oak dryness and flowery bitterness…Citrus esters and clovers…Yeasty and…that’s it…One amongst many others…

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Clear golden colour, slight fruitiness detected and some yeatiness. Not bad but not up there with some of the better Belgian golden ales.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Misty gold with bathfoam suds. Soapy, rubbery, alcoholic aroma with traces of marmalade and pine. Aggressively booze-sodden with lurking antiseptic notes. Pointless, pleasureless administration of alcohol to the central nervous system. Pissed comprehensively over by Duvel. Can’t be bothered.
