Golden with an off-white head of foam. Aromas are floral and hoppy with some nuttiness - oddly like some English bitters. Flavours are bitter and hoppy primarily with some sweet malts lurking in the background. Could be stronger on the final straight - the finish is spicy but lacking in oomph.

A fairly decent Belgian Ale, although I don’t know if I would purchase this again. A somehwat floral aroma, somewhat light body, and somewhat bitter taste make this a somewhat dull experience...somewhat. Ok..

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy gold to dull orange in color, with towering, rocky, buzzing and highly aromatic head. Aroma is citrus, spice, lemon, straw, sugar. Solid body, strong palate presence, a lively hop profile, with sweet maltiness behind it. Very distinct and uplifting taste and a pleasant finish that takes it’s time. A real reward in every sip, and a decent Duvel clone, but certainly not the same.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Slight banana, clove, and wheat taste. As with St. Sebastiaan Dark, it is a little thin in body. Finish is quite crisp and clean. Not bad, but not something worth writing home about.

75cl. bottle. pours an hazy gold with a substantial head. apple, spicy hops, orange and yeast in tha aromas. flavors of orange candy, apple. spritzy mouthfeel. becoming dry in the finish with a slight orange flavor lingering. kind of a let down in the flavors. I expected a little more. still a good beer.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
08.22.04 0.5l crock. Golden pour; big bits of stuff floating about; head is small, but thick and creamy, light tan. Typical Belgian yeasty aromas. A slightly off, slightly chemical smell (aerosol paint?). Creamy texture, very full mouthfeel. Mild flavors with melon and vanilla undertones. Nice finishing bitterness. Not much spice. Pretty focused on one dimension, unfortunate alcohol presence for a beer that’s not huge. Enjoyable, but not remarkable.
