3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden coloured with big white head. Fruity and fresh. A very "straight forward" beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle conditioned. Golden beer with white head. A citric, sugary flavour with warm malts, cereal flavours, quite earthy. Drinks as a high alcohol beer with astringency and spiciness. Probably lacks real depth to be a great beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-gold. Huge, fluffy white & irregular head, quite stable, going down laey. Very alcoholic nose, candi sugar. Dry-perfumed taste. Quite some sweetness left, with a meaty taste. Not much depth. Mouthfeel is alcohol-dominated, and dry. Slight bitter aftertaste. Not very exciting. Maybe after the fifth...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nothing special. Lacks complexity and body. Quite sweet and yeasty and malty. However, still worth drinking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Frothy head. Citric aroma. Sweetish, fruity flavor with orange. Just a bit yeasty, some alcohol present. Well made beer, but lacks complexity.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice name for an ale. Drank this one a bit to warm I think, does not even come close to Duvel. Is not as impressive as the latter one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrus aroma. Golden color, white head, good lace. Citrus flavor, light sweet, pretty hoppy. Sparkling, bitter long lasting finish. Not bad but boring.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At first, I thought this was going to be yet another Duvel-imitation and partially I was right, but the colour was amber instead of white. Yeasty aroma, alcoholic too. It has an alcoholic, little spicy flavour. Ends malty. Not as intense as the Duvel-flavour.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A little bit of spicy taste, not as good as Duvel, but it is a good strong beer never the less. Head and colour is very fine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Odd light brown color. But with the spicy aroma and taste, it is a Duvel-look-a-like, though you wouldn’t have guessed it when you look at the color. I really enjoy these types of beers.
