Bottle. Clear gold, frothy white head. Banana, spice, pepper, cloves and bread. Great smooth, rich flavours of banana, restrained caramel, strong peppery finish and only a hint of high alcohol. High carbonation, yet still smooth.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle into glass. Sour malt nose. Murky orange/brown beer with slight film. Zingy on the tongue, raisins and alcohol in the finish. Cloves are apparent as it warms. Not my favourite Red Hill beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From 330 ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a thin but lasting white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas of lemon, cinnamon, lime, banana and pepper. Taste opens with bright fresh apple and some white bread, before a firmer peppery note emerges in the mid palate. Fruity finish with some banana and lemon notes. Lingering spicy finish. Not bad at all.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Belgian Beer Cafe, Southbank, Melbourne. Not a bad Aussie approximation of Duval golden ale. Hazy golden pour with a disappointingly thin white head. Nose has golden malts, Belgian yeast and peppery spices that is transferred to the tongue with a bittersweet flavour profile and satisfying dry hop finish. Slick palate with medium body and carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poura a sligthly pale golden colour with a classic huge balgian head that last forever. Aroma of candysugar, dough, hay and some cinnamon. Flavour is very sweet, almost a bit too much. Lot of candysugar and dough, and a cinnamon finish. Medium to full bodied wirh a soft palate, but a lot of carbonation. Overall, a good beer, but nothing superspecial.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a 330ml bottle on 30/11/2012. Pours a cloudy yellow golden with bugger all head. The aroma is Belgian yeast, some apple and spices. The flavour is sweet and fruity, with lots of yeast and spices present. There is some tart apple and more spices in the medium bitter finish. The carbonation is lively but typical of the style. While certainly not my favourite style, this is a decent crack at a strong Belgian ale.
