Pours a nice golden yellow with an abundant head that remained very well. The abundant carbonation helped to ensure that I had a dose of head with each taste. The smell was dominantly sweet and fruity, I noticed a hint of a raison, but there were also hints of spice and yeast. The taste was both sweet and sour, almost like a green apple, but very pleasant and fairly complex. The carbonation and medium to light body made this a very pleasant beer on the palate. This beer also finished surprisingly crisp. Overall this was a very enjoyable brew, but I think if I had the choice I would rather have a Hennepin or a Fin Du Monde. Nevertheless this beer is in elite company, its just not at the top of the pile in my book.

I've enjoyed a fair share of DT over the years. I've had it both on tap and in their ceramic coated bottles. I recommend having it on draft if possible. The bottles are sometimes off and the flavor just isn't the same. With distribution from Europe, you have no idea how long those bottles have been sitting in a hot New Jersey warehouse.
In it's prime, it pours golden with a beautiful head. In bottles, yeast will be at the bottom of the bottle.
It doesn't smell nearly as good as it tastes. Smells of ale and slight sweetness.
Taste is fruity, spicy, and very sweet. In its prime, I taste banana, orange, coriander, cinnamon, and molasses.
Overall, it's a great beer. I like the overpowering sweetness. It's something I can appreciate with food or by itself.
