3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle courtesy of pepsican. Thanks! Pours a hazy almost murky yellow color with a thin fizzy white head that fades fairly quickly. Aroma of bready malts with caramel, spice, stone fruits, very faint earth and herbal hops. The taste is sweet bready malts, cinnamon, other spice, caramel, strawberries. pineapple, citrus and stone fruits. Medium bodied, slight bitterness, high carbonation and no heat. Nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy golden body. Frothy, white head, quickly diminishing. Aroma is mostly clove with notes of mustiness, lemon, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A bit hot in the finish with peppery alcohol notes. Tastes of clove and lemon. Thin and simple for as big a beer as it is.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy golden straw with no discernible head at all. Hay, apples, yeast and some hops in the nose. Taste is much sweeter than I expected, they said this beer was going to be well attenuated but they lied to me. Carbonation is low, as is the bitterness. Is this suppose to be a Duvel clone? If so, it isn’t working. At all. Except for the alcohol content. That is noticeable and equivalent to Duvel. Where’s the goddamn foamy head? Where’s the carbonation? I will finish this beer, but only because it was a trade extra from pepsiedcan, and i need to catch a buzz. Scroll past this beer if you ever see it in a store.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour out of bottle, thanks Aaron! Hazy yellow pour with thin white head, aroma of lemon, biscuit, slight pear and grape, touch of earth note in there as well. Taste is a nice biscuit, caramel, slight lemon with rich yeast, touch of earth and more bready notes, finishing fairly sweet but slightly dry. Pretty nice.

A bit too sweet for me, I much prefer dry blondes. In any case, it is a Belgian, so I suppose it is warranted. Rated accordingly.
