DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2008
Bottle huge thanks to cgarvieuk, via fin at cgarvieukís banter party jig. Aroma is peachy, citrus, clear notes of saaz and peppery alcohol. Taste is similar orange peel and spice with peach, peppery finish off the alcohol. Very nice.

thebeertourist (4904) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2008
75 cl bottle. Poured a huge white head above the hazy golden beer. The head left beautiful lacework. Complex hop aroma- at first the floral traits of Amarillo hits the nose, later more spicy and peppery aromas. Alcohol is there, too. Flavours balance the sweet base with good, complex hop bitterness. Pepper and fruit, which hints of orange, is the main impression, but also some yeastiness. Impressive.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Bottle shared by moejuck via MikeTD: Pours a hazy gold with a medium sized white head. Aroma, floral and spicy hops, yeasty, and peppery. Flavor, pepper, spices and floral notes, some decent bitterness. Pretty good stuff. But I do tend to like these hoppy tripels that keep coming out, itís a nice trend.

Yves (2361) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Clear blond coloured beer, large white head, lots of carbonation. Hoppy aroma, finish is dry, bitter and alcoholic. Nice to taste it, but letís keep it to the regular Duvel. 2010 verion: Poored out with the yeast. So hazy bond coloured beer with medium white hed and no carbonation visible. Soft hoppy herby aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is bitter ending very dry. Nice combination of 3 different hops. A less strong finish than the regular Duvel. I liked it, better than previous version.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2008
Bottle from Sainsburys consumed on New Years Eve, in the Duvel glass. A pale golden beer with the typical Duvel massive head. aroma is fresh and floral, slightly herbal. To taste it is sweet with a strong herbal bitterness. Sharp carbonation on the tongue. Itís close to Duvel but quite different. Enjoyable.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 3, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of Ungstrup. Hazy, pale golden with a tall, bubbly and very lively, white head. Sweet aroma of malt and yeast. Full-bodied with very sweet malts and a distinct yeastiness. Some medicinal notes. A little low in carbonation. Subdued bitterness. I donít really recall any of those US/Belgian hybrid beers that have left a markable impression. This was no exception. 191207
