2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Fruity, yeasty aroma. Hazy yellow, with a huge white head. Taste fruity, more alcoholic than Duvel even though it has considerably less alcohol.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Shared with Tranquility - thanks!
Pale yellow gold, with a light head. Typical strong belgian beer aroma. Clean and crisp, pleasantly bitter, and with a lightly bready maltiness. A bit alcoholic in places. Nothing actually wrong with it, but maybe it didnít suit the hot weather and my mood.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Fruity, rather sweet, some warming alcohol. A little sourness. Not unpleasant, but not outstanding, either.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big white head. Yellow body. Mealy, rubbery aroma. Sweetish spicy milky yeasty aroma with wheaty and toffeeish notes. Rounded, sharpish mouthfeel. Dry, grassy mealy milky aftertaste. Nice, but a bit dull. (0.33l bottle from Dorstvlegel, Antwerp.)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle at Camargue, Antwerpen. Hazy, deep golden colour, medium off-white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma with hints of peach. Moderate sweet and fruityflavours with a rather more bitter finish. Well-carbonated. Enjoyable, but not very original.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden, moderate head. The aroma has notes of fruit and the flavour is sweetish with a lot of fruit/citrus and a dash of caramel and spice, mostly coriander. A charming one, makes me think of Duvel...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice and good tasting beer that you can compare like duvel. Not that full bodied and not so strong but still a very nice beer

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From a 11.2 oz. stubby bottle with a freshness date in the lower right hand corner, sampled at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
Poured a clear orangey golden with frothy, rocky, bubbly white head, good retention, small amount of laced sticking.
An estery nose of apples, bananas and small whiffs of alcohol, a light sweet maltiness in the background, not much else.
Good carbonation and a crisp, dry, smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel.
Pleasant tasting, if not average, kinda of bland and inoffensive, the alcohol is noticeable right from the start by providing at sharp sting on tongue, warming in the palate, followed by tastes of sour apples and bananas, sugary malts, a light spicy bite towards the end, and a finish of apples, sweet malts and alcohol.
I too found this to be overpriced for what it is worth, I paid $14.99 for a four pack, too much, not worth it.
