330 mL bottle. Pours a light golden color with a HUGE frothy thick white head. The aroma is a light malt with banana and citrus notes. Lacing stains the glass on this one. The taste is honey and a sweet vanilla finish. A well done belgian.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 1 pint and 9.4 FL oz. Hazy gold color with tall white head. Aroma is light with a bit of spicy hops, lemon, candy sugar and yeast. As the beer warms I smell a bit of malt sweetness. First sip is an explosion of carbonation. The taste starts off tart along with hints of candy sugar. Midway the sugar part gets stronger and some pepper. Later a hint of the alcohol surfaces.

Had typical Belgian strong ale characteristics but just not right on mark. I was a little disappointed by this baby.

8.5, another duvel clone?? Well, not really
..The big thing here is that the alcohol is masked much better than duvel, but the similarities end there....
Light honey wheat smell...
medium bodied fizzy head, that leaves some noticeable lacing...
witbier type light yellow cloudy appearance...
Taste is mainly a honey bitterness with not much complexity, but that can be a neutral- a starter belgian but most people with some good beer background will find this lacking...
an enjoyable easy drinking beer (man,. how often do i say that!?!)
but it really isn’t anything that special...

330ml bottle. Very similar to Duvel. Slightly hazy gold with a big white head. sweet malt and spice aroma. Flavour also inclined towards sweetness with a good, bitter finish. Enjoyable.
