This pours a nice golden straw color with a bright white fluffy billowing two finger head that settles down to a rocky covering with rings and patches of lace. After a quick swirl, the head seems to boil up from below and replenish its self.
The aroma is spicy and a little medicinal, with a hint of chewed up Juicy Fruit chewing gum
The flavor is sweet and a little tart, acetaldehyde, with clovelike spices and an estery background and a little phenolic. All these different qualities blend together and work well for and overall impression of this ale.
The mouthful is a little thin, but the carbonation is damn near perfect.
Very drinkable and I wish I had more to enjoy. The alcohol is completely absent, and at 8,5% can sneak up oh damn!

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.
