4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle, pours a very light yellow orange, a little cloudy, big foamy head and solid carbonation, looks a lot like the classic Duvel. The aroma is dominated by the Citra hop, balanced very nicely with the Duvel’s banana, bubblegum & herby flavour, short bitter finish, very smooth yet complex, a fantastic IPA style Belgian Ale.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Hazy golden blonde with a big frothy head. Superb complex aromas, piney, lemon rind, green, minty and spicy. Very nice. Medium body, beautiful complex hops, rarely tasted citra hops so well domesticated. Never cat-pissy. Good carbonation, long leafy hop finale, spicy, very fresh, minty finale. Top class.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clássica Golden Strong Ale Belga na sua versão limitada sazonal. A edição de 2012 nos surpreende com uma novidade, Dry hopping do Citra, um das três varietais utilizadas (juntamente com o Saaz e o Styrian Golding). O resultado é uma cerveja surpreendente, desde ja nas minhas favoritas. A coloração nao difere muito da Duvel tradicional, amarelo palha. Mas o aroma, meu Deus! Parece que você esta prestes a desfrutar uma IPA americana das boas. Cítrico, herbáceo, lúpulo, muito lúpulo! No paladar, temos um corpo médio, porém amargo e refrescante, mascarando a quantidade de álcool da breja. O malte e o frutado vem no fim do gole, mas o amargor persiste por bastante tempo, duradouro. Retrogosto seco e amargo, refrescante. Uma cerveja maravilhosa!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Farmyard, earthy, slightly cheesy nose with some fresh citrus. Pours a pale straw-gold with a un-duvelesque thin head. Flavour is interesting - well-balanced with a steady Duvel sharpness underpinned by freshness from the cintra hop; however, there’s a slight yeasty sourness and the mouthfeel is spoiled a little by over-carbing. Finish is long and dry with zesty orange peel notes and maybe a little wheat-style coriander. And plenty of pepper. Nice. Not amazing, but nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
25-JAN-2012, bottle @Papsø tasting, @Yespr.
Pale golden with white head.
Sweet hoppy aroma with citrus and a little pine, honey, and licorice.
Taste the same. Belgian like yeast and spice. Overcarbonated.
Fine mix with the hops but nothing spectacular.

Small bottle. Clear pale yellow pour, frothy white head. Aroma is fruity, lots of lemon candy, light eucalyptus, duvel nose (light yeastiness), grass. Taste is fruity, beautiful hop flavor, a bit of corn sweetness, not as clean as the aroma but very nice. Palate is good, classic Duvel, really high carb with med body, easy drinking.
