As is evident from the graphic, this beer starts with a really nice presentation. Uncapping it, even to a nose as dead as mine, Belgian fruitiness is in the air. It pours a wheaty, champagne tint, with a healthy, frothy, and dimpled head, which just keeps coming. The lacing pulls down like a Rorschach test, like those clouds that kick imagination into gear. The mouth feel is yeasty and carbonated, but not too much of either. A reminder of its goodness hangs about on the back of the tongue. It's 8.5 ABV is not apparent, absorbed by its blend. This is a good brew! Somewhere, God said, "Let there be Belgians, and let them make good beer..."

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.
