Maybe this bottle was bad, but I didn’t have a good experience with this one. Bitter and tart beer. It smells like a pilsner of Budweiser qualtiy - corn and rice. This beer is not a good representation of a BSA, and it is terribly light.

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, malts, Belgian yeast, fruit, hops and citrus.

Clear/hazy yellow/golden beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, Belgian yeast and fruit; ends slightly bitter and slightly/medium dry with hops and citrus.

This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The aroma has it all, but shamefully the flavour is less complex. Sadly this beer is filtered, Both the appearance, flavour and palate would have benefited if it was unfiltered.

delikatny - mokra szmatka (trochę w stylu pilsa), pomarańcza;
ciało niskie, wysoko nasycone, finisz goryczkowy;
za aromatem i lekka żywiczna goryczka;
typowy pils z odrobiną pomarańczy.

Bottle of 25cl, in a Duvel glass; from the fridge. Hmmm... It’s a great hoppy beer, but the problem is that Moortgat got the Duvel Triple hop which is far better than this one... Great light hoppy aroma and taste. The coloour is blond with a white foamy head.

I know this beer because the Duvel brewery is 5km from my home. It is not commercially available in shops or supermarkets but in our region most pubs have it and only bottled in 25cc transparent bottles. It is completely different from the classic Duvel with lower alcohol content and a sweeter taste.

Aroma is not that great, it has basement and barnyard aromas. Taste is better, lightly bitter but there is not so much character in it. Color is very pale yellow. Finish is astringent and longish. Beer feels fizzy and lively in mouth. Overall drinkable but somewhat average experience.
