UPDATED: NOV 9, 2014 Commissioned by the Delhaize supermarket chain, I got to know this beer many years ago when it was apparently still brewed by De Smedt (now Affligem under Heineken) and presented as a Christmas beer towards the year’s end; nowadays it is available throughout the year and no longer limited to being a Christmas beer. Pours a clear and warm golden blonde, clear with regular fizz but slightly hazy with deposit, under a thick, snow white, sticky head. Aroma is a bit sourish and vegetable-like, DMS clearly present (cooked cauliflower), apart from sweaty grains, a faint hint of burnt rubber, plastic, and, frankly, diswhater, further compromizing the otherwise not too unpleasant hints of green apple, young ’jenever’, flowers, soapy hops, white bread and yoghurt. Tastes fortunately better than it smells: lightly estery, apple, some banana and mandarin, rounded and slick mouthfeel, a bit metallic, slight sugary sweetishness as well as sweetish pale malts, soft, minerally with medium to strongish carbo, finishing in a mild grassy hop bitterishness, medium long, dryish with quite some wodka-like alcohol, though less wry than I had feared; malt sweetness and even ’powder sugary’ sweetness also keeps lingering, in fact longer than the hop bitters. In all: another attempt at rivalling the sovereign Duvel, but not nearly there, as the old Lucifer under Riva. The aroma is just too flawed to fully enjoy this, but I don’t really complain about the taste. But hey, enjoying a drink also has a lot to do with smelling it, hasn’t it?

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2014
Pours a murky yellow colour with little carbonation. Strong bitter, hoppy aroma, little scent of citrus there. Hoppy bready bitter flavour, nothing special but not bad. Goes down smooth, little touch of alcohol, thin/medium bodied.

Sten (674) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - JUN 17, 2014
Pale golden coloured beer with a small white head. Aroma is malty and yeasty. Flavour is medium sweet yeasty and a bit acidic in the aftertaste. (Bottle 33cl)

tlind2 (1159) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle@Brussels, July 2012. Golden color, lasting white head. Spicy flavor reminiscent of Duvel. Medium-full body, high carbonation. Pretty good.

MichaelAwesome (4574) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2013
Not a bad one. Just a duvel from delhaize with a bit less sweetness and hops than the original piwo. Still bit sweetish, quaffy, big carbo. Not rocket science but a good brewed quality beer.

McTapps (4574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2013
Didn’t really want to buy and drink this one, but my hubby forced me to ;-) Pours out in a light hazy golden colour with steady, creamy head and medium body. Nose of pukey sourness. Taste of mild ripe hops, grass, mash, sour barley and citrus fruits. Easy, but not nice to drink, alone for the puke character on the nose.

77ships (4297) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2013
33 cl. bottle @ home. Purchased from Delhaize. BBF 26/02/2015. Lightly hazy apple golden, egg white, soapy head. Nose is sweet, light lemonade, white sugar grains, cheap sweet Chinese pastry,… mellow nose. Taste is sweet, white sugar, white bread, soda, Belgian yeast, cheap sweet Chinese pastry, finished bitter spices with cheap alcohol, disinfecting alcohol, white alcohol, mineral, finish is quite brutal in a non-fun way, almost like taking a shot of old Jenever,… Body is a bit fluffy. This is not too bad actually.

# 3234 ersma: auch bei delhaize hat sich viel getan, hier gibts nicht mehr nur billigbiere, auch nachgehopgfte sorten in schicken, verkorkten flaschen sind im programm. hier ein eher schlichtes in der 0.33-l-knolle. goldfarben, perlig, schaum ist recht stabil. der geruch ist fruchtig, süßlich, etwas banane und hefe. der antrunk ist hefebetont, leicht säuerlich mit süßlichen aromen, leichte zitrus-anflüge und stroh. die mitte wird herber, ansonsten hefe, fruchtigkeit. der abgang ist hopfenbetont und hat ansonsten süßlich-fruchtige noten. die flasche ist bis auf das große delhaize-logo ansehnlich. fazit: überraschend nett, besonders wenn man die biere kennt, die delhaize vor einigen jahren im programm hatte. hier haben wir ein angenehmes, rundes strong ale, das ohne besonderheiten aber auch ohne fehler daherkommt. gut trinkbar. 11,10,10,10,9,10 - 10,05 - 4/3/13
