3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golde triple color with a small dense white head that smells of wet wood/cardboard, vanilla and bannanas. Flavor is pretty good, tropical/mango, plum and vanilla, with a slight oxidized, pappery note in the finish. If this beer was a little more consistent vis a vis Duvel it could be a contender, but as it stands it's occasionally pretty good, varying greatly from bottle to bottle.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Whoa...this was some powerful stuff. Upon opening this stubby little bottle the alcohol sneaks out from under the cap. Also is spicy and lemony. Poured a cloudy, opaque yellow with lots of chucky things floating around, yeast and grains are my guess. Gained a small fluffy white head with some divets and pock marks.
Taste is quite strong of alcohol, with a lemony/orange spice and a bit of a nutlike malt, very milky, grainy, pulpy in the feel with a smooth alcoholic bite that cleansed my head.

Nice toasty-maltiness, very drinkable. Very little aroma but a lovely flavor. Golden color with a little murk and only a little lace.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an orangey color with an off-white head and no lacing. Aroma is spicy, with alcohol ones. Not one of the best Belgians I have had. Very Average.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
amber-blond colour, fine head, nice lace, aroma of caramelized sugar, alcohol and peach/orange, vinous, tart and full-bodied, the sweetness is followed by a robust dry bitterness and a long warming alcohol and spicy aftertaste

Aaaaaaargh, shiver me timbers etc etc. No, sorry I should stop with that motif. This beer is OK but not anything special. For the money I am not impressed. If I could buy two for $2 and make earrings out of the caps it wouldn't be bad for a buccaneer. Boring beer.

The aroma is very sweet and alchoholic with notes of fruit. The color is a clear amber and it has a beutiful head, though it disappears. The flavor is very powerful and fruity. The alchohol content is hidden but gives it a great palate and prickles your tongue. It ends on a dry note instead of bitterness. A really great beer.

Cloudy light amber color, creamy head. Strong, persistent malt aroma; sweet. Smooth taste, malty, quite sweet; very well balanced in the end. Powerful and wrapping. Perfect afterdinner.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Full of flavor and aromatic surprises. Medium bodied and complex, spicy and tangy with very little achohol taste considering it is 10.5%. I just found myself wishing it came in a bigger bottle.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Medium amber color with lots of head, little lacing and some chill haze. Aroma of wheat banana and clove, very belgian. Full belgian flavors, very complex with lots of fig. Mouthfeel is alcohol, dry and refreshing. This is very unsuspecting from the bottle, don't ask me why.
