Tap. Very light blond with thick froth. Detectable alcohol in aroma, a bit disturbing as it appears also in the taste. Generally smooth, quite drinkable and overall enjoyable but not as great as I expected it to be.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
75 cl bottle at home. Pours like a tripel and looks like one - what more can I say? Powerful aroma of pungent hop, earthy vegetable and spice. Taste is firm malty sweetness and some fruit, mango and pinapple: soon becoming very bitter. A light sourness, but in a good way. Rich and satisfying, you can tell there is a lot of alcohol in this, but it wears it lightly. Long, bitter and dry finish. Truly great, Dupont brew some excellent beer and I think this is the pinnacle.

Looks like a urine sample of someone with a medical problem. Hazy yellow with no head or lacing. Nice Belgium yeast, wine, banana aroma. Tastes of a true Belgium that is well hopped and a little alcohol. A complex beer.
