Lacks complexity for what it is. Almost a hybrid between a strong dopple and a lager, which is really a little weird. However, some banana, some peach, some apricot and a really beautiful color makes it a decent beer overall.

Poured from cellar temp. Pours a nice orange with strong amount of white head. Retention is good. Nose is temperate rain forest, orange, apple, and some floral notes. Taste is a tad bitter upfront, but smooth and sweet on the aftertaste. Getting lots of Belgian yeast, fruit, and a bit of tree bark. Maybe a bit of horse leather. Quite nice - definitely not a typical pale ale. Mouthfeel is medium and not too dry.

Aroma of overripe bananas. Taste is sweeter (caramel) than normal for a Belgian Strong Pale Ale, with a strong, spicy, peppery finish. Highly carbonated and the 11% makes itself known. Overall, a solid beer.

Large shared bottle from the UK.
Clear honey colored body with a weak head. Low but adequate carbonation.
Fruity aroma. Well balanced, complex but fairly mild flavor. Sweet aroma with a mildly bitter taste.

Dulcis 12 has a thin, white cap of foam, minimal lacing, and a hazy, golden, slightly bubbly appearance, which will cause a strong burp, however. Aroma is of Honey Comb brand cereal, bees’ wax, and breakfast cereal grain. Taste is of those elements, along with low-level bitterness, Bit-O-Honey brand candy, maybe coriander, and spiced bread. Mouthfeel is a touch slick and medium to heavy. Dulcis 12 finishes semi-dry and sip-able.
