Poured into a tulip.
A: Carbonation!!! When I pour, waves of it fill the glass. The body is clear and yellow, with the slightest orange tint. There's a big amount of rocky, white head that dissipates slowly. Carbonation rises all through the glass and provides an audible experience as well. Yay fourth sense!
S: The short and simple thing to say is bready yeasts and citrus and orange notes. But I really love it. Lighter beers like tripels and saisons have always been my favorites, but I've been having a lot of darker beers lately. This aroma is strong, refreshing and crisp. There's a grassy/piny undercurrent here, a smooth malt runs through it and I detect grapefruit and maybe even some grapes.
T: Follows the aroma, though the grass and yeast overly dominate the citrus aspects of the beer. It dulls the beer down a little bit.
M: Carbonation!! A thin body with lots of carbonation to fill your mouth. Very appropriate but maybe a little too much on the bubbles.
D: Strong flavors and strong carbonation. It only works well if the beer is made exquisitely and this beer unfortunately has some problems. It's still a very good and refreshing drink that I like more than my rating indicates, but the strong but dull flavor, along with the aggressive carbonation make this beer kind of a chore to drink.

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.
