Serrved on tap in a chalice glass Appearance – The beer is served a crystal clear light golden-amber color with a nice one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades very slowly over time leaving a great level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell –The aroma is heavy of a light fruit smell with peach and apricot being the heaviest and is accompanied by lightly toasted malt smell. Along with these smells comes some aromas of a light yeasty nature as well as some candied sugar and toasted bread smells. A little bit of a graininess and some grass and herbal hop smells add to the overall nose and create a rather pleasant and crisp aroma. Taste – The taste begins with a rather nice blend of sweeter fruitiness and crisp malt. The sweeter fruits are mainly of a peach and apricot nature, but also contain a little bit of an apple taste. The malt that is present upfront is mainly of a pale Belgian malt taste taking on a somewhat doughy and lightly toasted biscuit nature. As the taste moves forward the malt and fruit remain rather constant with some other flavors of a light yeast and a bit of a grassy flavor coming to the tongue. A bit of a graininess and some floral and citrus hop flavors come to the tongue at the end, leaving a somewhat sweeter but very crisp and quite drinkable Belgian pale ale flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is thinner and crisp with a carbonation level that is on the slightly higher side. The thinner body and higher carbonation are fantastic for complementing the lightly toasted, malty, and fruity flavors of the brew with the high effervescence adding to its very drinkable nature. Overall- A quite tasty and more sessionalble Belgian pale ale. While not quite to the level of its bottle fermented brethren, it is very crisp and tasty none the less and makes for a very delicious brew.

Stine (1539) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Classic dandelion yellow with airy cotton foam. Fresh dough, tinny honey aroma; light green herbs are constantly present but never obvious or distinguishable. Lavender, white pepper, fresh flowers.

Hugely herbal flavor, vibrant and lush with tarragon, mint, and fresh flowers; banana, and tangerine in expert balancing sweetness, just to settle it and nothing more. White tea leaves, musty yeast and cereal grain, spicy and smooth.

Soft carbonation in a somewhat brittle body; there is very little content mid palate. Acidic, bright finish with citrus zest and dry cottony yeast.

Pour is a perfect golden yellow that has perfect clarity and a crisp white head. Aroma is clean with lite hop and yeast notes. A refreshing beer that is dry with great citrus flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minutemat (1508) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Keg @ The Font, Manchester. Pours clear light gold with large white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Taste is creamy, yeasty with spice and a bitter finish. Obviously more drinkable than standard Duvel and much more suited to a bar atmosphere.

jayzz (319) - Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2014
Has an odd aroma that reminds me of green just cut wood. The flavor is yeasty with a fizz on the palate that grows and gets richer between tastes. Does not disappoint.

brnandersen (1866) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2014
Draught at Bishops Arms. Lovely, clear, deep golden colour with a white foam on top. Fruity aroma with grasses, a tart fruitiness, pale malts, spices and yeasts. Taste is light bitter. Medium body with an average carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with a grassy bitterness. Good, but not as interesting as the regular Duvel or the hopped-up yearly versions.

DYCSoccer17 (3309) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 4, 2014
10 ounce sample on tap at Ten22 in Sacramento. The aroma is spicy, metallic, and herbal with hints of barnyard esters. Light aroma. Transparent golden body with a small, weak, white head present. Starts with light spicy hop flavor, before this becomes a bit sweet and sticky in the middle. Dusty, dry, barnyard yeast esters come through late. Light grass hop bitterness is also present in the finish.

A very light yellow with heavy white head. Aroma is heavy with yeast and citrus. Has a citrus, wheat, heavy yeast, and grain taste. A dry feel.
