2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy yellow with very fluffy white foam head. Head is lasting and lacing to glass. Arome small, barley. Taste is surpisingly flat, some yeast, some caramel, not bitter. Bit dissapointed. (Velp 201206)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Total Wine, Fairfax 330ml: Pours an orange colour with a small head for a Belgian. Aroma is wildflower honey, fruitiness, and another note that is very particular to some Belgian ales. Taste is somewhat sweet, owing to the intense honey overtones. Has an off-note or two. Still, it is really smooth and pretty nice to drink. Alcohol covered up, but it kind of has like a hard liquor taste in a way.

This Belgian Ale has a sweet vanilla aroma with a light yellow color and a big frothy head. The taste is really sweet with a short aftertaste.

Bottle at tasting. Hazy light yellow color, creamy white heas. Aroma is faint, malty and spicy. Flavor is slightly metallic, spicy, somewhat sweet, slightly bitter in the finish. Nice balance. Subtle yet nice. Creamy texture and above average carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle - pours hazy orange with quickly diminishing white head. Nose is nutty with basement aromas. Flavor adds caramel and leaves. Sweet! sticky mouthfeel with a slight burning sensation. A flavor that just wonít quit. A night cap reading beer if Iíve ever had one; too bad itís only 7:34 PM.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drank in the very pleasant surroundings of íThe Tr@cks and Travellers Barí Knokke-Heist in Belgium.
This is a poor mans Duvel, even down to the glass. Everything is Duvel like, the look, aroma and aftertaste even. But all a little paler and weaker in every aspect. Nothing wrong with it, but Iíd rather have the real thing, wouldnít you?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark brown color, aroma is nothing special, first few sips had a metal flavour to them with a sweet taste on the background which later comes to the foreground. The flavor dissipates fast though.
