3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden, white foam fades pretty quickly, smell is Belgian yeast, a touch of funk, fruit, hint of clove and pepper, taste is slight sweet, bitter, tangy citrus, nice finish, lots of flavor but they don’t quite come together. The beer has bite,although not overly bitter. The feel is a bit too thick for me, it lessens the refreshing quality. A touch alcoholic. A strong, aggressive, flavorful beer, enjoyable but a bit rough around the edges.

Courtesy Beerlando. Slightly cloudy golden color, thin white head. Sweet grainy aroma, Belgian yeast, slight spiciness. Almost flat mouthfeel, and has a general sweet character overall with some crisp fruitiness on the back end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden color with a minimal, bubbly, white head. The foam settles quickly to a wispy film. A soapy wash leaves virtually no lacing behind. Aromas include candy sugar, bready yeast, light caramel, and perfumy, floral hops. I can see instantly why some call this a Duvel clone. Flavors show more candy sugar, with hints of cotton candy and some apples coming through. Wildflowers lend some spice and bitterness. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated, this is fairly easy drinking considering the substantial ABV. Nice brew.

I liked this beer. It was a bit sweet, and the 8% alc. was completely hiden. Poured bronze with a creamy head. Sweet and fun, very easy drinking. Flavor of honey, flowers, and a bit of citrus. Very clean aftertaste. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
[1720-20080917] 22floz bottle. Wheat "hotdogs and mustard" or over-cooked ham aroma and a little citrus. Hazy, light brown orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Very wheatie flavour has a citrus yeast finish and mild syrupy pear and lemon zest along the way. Light-medium body. Surprising to come from 06/06/06, but still a great brew.
