The bottle is really great looking. I like the pink elephants and lizards. The amber bottle is painted to look like stone or ceramics. DT pours a cloudy orange color with a huge white head. The head shrinks down to 1/2 inch and hangs in there. Some minimal lacing. The aroma begins as soon as the cap starts to bend under the opener. By the time you pour it into the glass, the aroma (something like a Hefe Weizen) is very pronounced. This is my first Belgian Strong Pale Ale. I thought DT tasted very much like a Hefe. There is a citrus and astringent taste but the astringent part is much more balanced and acceptable than any Hefe I have had. I did not notice the high alcohol from the taste. The mouthfeel was good, not too heavy or light. If I didn't know and respect the ABV, I would consider this very drinkable, especially for someone who likes Hefe's better than I do.

On tap, poured into a snifter.
Appearance - gold, bubbly champagne. Thin, white head that leaves minimal lacing.
Smell - a bit underwhelming; some fruit sweetness and mild spices.
Taste - far exceeds the nose, very flavorful and refreshing!
Feel - light considering the ABV, but that isn't a negative. Finishes a bit dry.
Overall - a very good beer, but for the price, give me Duvel.
Serving type: on-tap
