Taken from my beer journal dated 3/6/12

Appearance: 25.6oz bottle poured into Duvel tulip. Colour is a nice, translucent, orange-brown with a finger-thick head that leaves a healthy rim. Moderate amounts of visible carbonation.

Smell: Spicy clove and yeast are first and foremost followed by strong bubblegum and bananas.

Taste: Strong and bitter clove mixed in with sweet malts and a slight bitter hop.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a light, silky touch.

Overall: If there was one single word to describe this beer it would be elegant followed by finesse. It doesn't have the greatest flavours in the world but I can taste the level of craftmanship that has gone into this brew.

750ml bottled 7/9/13. Served in a DFH signature glass

Appearance: Pours an amber color with 3 fingers of an off white/eggshell colored head. Nice lacing and retention. Body is hazy with relatively high visible carbonation.

Smell: Wheat, spicy belgian yeast, honey, grape, clove.

Taste: Sweet, slightly tart orange/citrus, classic witbier flavors of wheat, yeast, and some slight clove along with grape juice and coriander.

Mouthfeel: Relatively full bodied, slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Medium carbonation. A sipper, but not overwhelmingly boozy.

Overall: This is a tasty beer, but like some Dogfish beers, I'm not really sure the ABV needs to be this high. I think turning it down a notch would actually beneficial to this one.
