2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
I am not impressed. I look forward to trying anything from Belgium. In this case however my optimism was unfounded. Bitter, sour taste and unbalanced in my opinion. I tend to be a hopp head but even the hopps in this beer was poorly done. Gold color with a large white mostly lasting head. Mod lacing but the flavor aspects did not live up to the visual. Pass on this poor attempt at a belgium

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow with bathwater head that settles into a thin quiet white foam. Aroma is more winter melon than any scent described in the commercial description. Flavour is lighlty fruity and heavy on the baking soda foaminess without much body to hold it. Perhaps a better summer beer or a poor Duvel clone.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours greenish golden yellow with huge soapy white head. The aroma is hay, soap, yeast, and some lemon. The flavor is very lemony and very astringent. There is a ton of yeast twang, too, and some alcohol burn in the finish. The flavor is very aggressive, but not satisfying. Iím not a fan of this one.

Bottle. You know, I love Belgians, but this one didnít fit the bill for me. Light and extremely dry with too many creepy floaters. I donít mind yeast and some particles, but this was like frog eggs... slimy and disgusting. Nose was yeasty and a bit of hops along with that sweet tangy Belgian smell. Also, their was almost a fusel alcohol flavor and wispiness up into the nose. I wish I liked it, but I think it sucks. Maybe Iíll try another after seeing the rating here... maybe not.

Iíve had a bad run with Belgians. This beer deserves to spend eternity with the one on the label. No aroma. Pour was a hazy pee color with a 4 finger head. The taste was way too carbonated and not very tasty. Stick a pitch fork in this one....itís done in my book.

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. Canít be bothered.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle) Bizarre aroma for a Belgian Strong - smells more like an American swill Malt Liquor? Grassy, tin nose mixed with a mild malt and some lemony-fruitness. Huge, non-dissipating, white head. Belgian Ale flavour yet watery and non-complex. Finishes smooth and lame.

Cool name. Cool label. Mediocre beer. Hazy golden body with a big, frothy white head. Aroma was sweet: honey, peaches, maybe apples. Some spice. Feels artificial in the mouth. Like a sauce or a cleaning product. Not a real beer feel. The flavor seems to have a lot going on but none of it is successful. In the end, itís just bittersweet without character. A beer with this name should kick ass and make you want to dance with the devil.

(on bottle) Hazy, pale yellow. Pear-sents with a citric applepeal note. Taste is not that complex; ībit like wet cardboard and that impression lingers in the finish too.

Bottle. Really expected a bit more out of this devil brew. Sweet yet spicy and pungent. Just not my thing. What the hell were they thinking.
