3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Corked bottle and served in Duvel snifter: Pours a clean deep golden hue with a mostly lasting frothy head and very good lace. The aroma has notes of herbal bittering hops, a touch of apple skins, biscuity malts, hint of light crystal and plenty of Belgian yeast esters of bubblegum, banana and clove. The taste is still mostly malt and yeast driven but you can indeed notice the increased bitterness. There is a moderate hop spice and leafy tone about the midsection. The finish is earthy and a bit astringent. The mouth feel is lively but not has crisp as I would have hoped. It is a good beer but I would much rather have a Duvel Tripel Hop over this.

Nose is funky yeasty malt, hops, apricotty fruit. Tastes complex, fruity and yeasty, with mid-palate hops, notes of florals, apricot, and honey, and a lively mouthfeel.

Clear golden pour. Smell is mostly banana, yeast-dominant. Super spicy taste, sweet, some yeast in there. Potent for the abv. Dry effervescent palate. similiar to brooklyn sorachi ace which I am drinking side-by-side as a coincidence.
