Poured from a bottle into duvel glass a bit hazy, yellow-orangish with a very fluffy white head; great retention. Stays bubbly. Smells a bit yeasty, sweet and fruity; some pears. The taste mathced aroma well, sweet, fruity, but also had a bit of bite to it. Mouthfeel is smooth, lots of carbonation but not harsh, very airy. Great beer, I really enjoyed it. It has a great aroma and taste and is not heavy. Definitely a bottle you can put down alone and enjoy it.

From a 750ml bottle notched on the 3 and the 11. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Slightly hazy amber with a beautiful pillowy white head that maintains it's size and shape for a few sips. Lots of carbonation activity coming from the D at the bottom of the Duvel glass, like a column of bubbles climbing to meet the head.

S: Sweet and fruity, but mellow, very complex. Banana and strawberries perhaps with light floral hops and slight clove spices. Very inviting, almost as good as Damnation.

T: Matches the aroma perfectly, very inviting and complex. Sweet with the strawberry and banana notes through which blend into the delicate floral hops and end with a light spicey cloves finish. This is almost as good as Damnation in the taste.

M: Expands in the mouth with a creamy body and huge amounts of soft carbonation, very airy.

O: This is an excellent beer and I wish I hadn't put off so long trying it. It's one of my favorite beers now and I'll more than likely buy another for my non beer drinking friends to enjoy.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Delirium Tremens snifter.

A - body is straw yellow with streams of bubbles coming up from the etching on the glass. About a finger of fine white head with decent retention. Minimal lacing

S - smells of crisp tart apples and green grapes. Clean bready malts and some delicate floral hop aroma.

T - slightly sweet and a little tart up front. Light bready malt and herbal hop flavor. Finish is dry, clean an balanced.

M - thin body with tingling carbonation. Finish is dry and clean.

Overall - very well balanced Belgian strong pale ale. Top notch.
