3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (HBF2013, Friday)
Pale, but with a lovely frothy white head. Massive fruity tropical aroma - coconut and pineapple. Odd, but I like it. Taste is the opposite - a horror mess - I just don’t like sorachi ace. With all the yeast it becomes saner, it becomes tropical fruit juice. Does cover the alcohol quite well, it’s not boozy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Gollem. It pours pale yellow with a thick white head. The nose is herbal, mint, lemon, faint aniseed and underlying sweetness. The taste is straw, nice level of bitterness, light herbal, icing sugar, touch of soap and lemon with a dry, lightly bitter finish. Medium body, high carbonation and velvety mouth-feel. Solid beer, but Sorachi Ace is not my thing......

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pale blonde. Lemon, pineapple and apricot in the aroma. Malty, floral hopbitter flavor with lemon and pineapple. Dryish and quite likeable. But more perfumed as the ’regular’ Duvel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle at home. Rather pale golden blond coloured beer with lots of carbonation and a large white head. Very fruity almost peachy starfruit hoppy hinted aroma. Full palate. Finish is again very fruity with a light bitter hoppy ending. Still convinced that the regular Duvel is better, but this one is more to my taste than last years Citra version.

Bijzonder biertje deze duvel. De smaak is moeilijk te plaatsen, maar wel bijzonder (lekker).
