Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a very dark red brown amber. Massive carbonation, overflowed the bottle on opening. Large light brown head that slowly dissipated leaving lacing. Aroma of dark and light fruit, Belgian spice and yeast, malt. Taste is dark fruit and malt, light brown sugar. Flavor somewhat attenuated on the finish. Overall pleasant and interesting, but the intensity of the flavor is somewhat lacking. Light to medium mouth feel. A pleasant Belgian ale.

A: pale appearance, clear, decent lacing, some head retention, cascading bubbles

S: nose is heavy on belgian yeast, some spicy clove character, a bit of funk

T: some sweet malts to start, light bubblegum, heavy clove and Belgian yeast, leans heavily on the yeast side of things

Mf: light body, medium to high carbonation

O: nice intro to Belgian style ales, not the best balance for the style

Poured from 750mL bottle. Immediately noted the large, promintent near-pure white hear. Very tight foam, almost a soapy quality in how it forms and laces the glass. It has a cloudy, golden color with visible sediment and abundant carbonation visible that fuels the long-lasting head. It smells very sweet, a combination of floral hops and a number of fruits that I couldn’t easily decipher. When you first take a sip, it begins by being sweet. As soon as you pull the glass away the spiciness sets in and it is honestly very unique compared to everything else I’ve had. As it settles there are slight notes of bitterness and long lingering spiciness that leaves you wanting more. I could barely tell the alcohol content was so high while drinking. Very high carbonation, but it doesn’t take away. Medium mouthfeel that lingers with the taste. Overall a great and unique beer.

Poured into a snifter

A: What a pretty bottle! Opaque, lemon yellow with a thick, white one finger head that stays. Lacing to die for.

S: Yeast and Belgian funk have arrived! Lemons and coriander with a zesty floral freshness that I can't stop sniffing.

T: Fresh, citrus-y. Floral. A semi-sweet, yeasty finish. Drinks like a tripel. Full of zip.

M: thick, chewy, creamy. High carbonation; bubbles dance about on the tongue.

O: I love the high-caliber crispness of DT. My wife is a fan, too. If you like lighter tastes in beer, this one will wrap itself around your taste buds and squeeze. Yum!

I enjoyed this beer at the Celtic celebration bar in Gent, Belgium.

A - A clear yellow beer with no visible carbonation. The head is white and dissapears quickly into a foam layer.

S - A light floral and piny scent along with a light malt syrup scent.

T - A very light sweetness, bitter and refresing

M - A high carbonation and a bitter finish. A real thirstquincher. In the finish there is some heat.

O - A good ale for on a warm day.

a: pours a bright golden color, a big three fingered white head, lots of small bubbles.

s: light citrus, and the coriander spice quite present. very crisp smelling.

t: very smooth malts and wheat, along with a solid lemony flavor and the spiciness from the coriander. mouthfeel very smooth.

o: very drinkable and nice, but not as complex or exciting as some of BSPA i have tried.
