ivory white head that leaves lacing. mango, passion fruit and dill aroma. more mango and dill in the taste, also some perceived saltiness. dry medium lasting aftertaste of mango and dill. it’s nice, but wont be drinking more than one of these at a time. i liked the 2012 citra edition more, but this series is nice nevertheless, especially compared to some other "hoppy beers" from the big breweries.bottle 33 cl

Pours perfectly clear ( i mean it!), pale straw color, with a proper white head.
Aroma is faint, grassy herbal and a pinch spicy.
Taste is sweet, lovely sorachi based, mouthfeel is thick, well carb'd.
Aftertaste is tiny tart, astringent, no bitterness.
Surprisingly, but -

330 ml bottle. Pours a yellow brown with medium head. Aromas of apples and fresh hops. Flavors are similar with more fresh hops and fruit. Tastes like a wet hopped beer. Nice.

Bottle @ Gollem with Scopey & Deeblo. The pour’s deep gold with a tiny white head. Ripe apple orchard nose. A bit or earthy piss and marzipan. Plums. The taste has a touch of brett. Mildly acerbic biting hops. Sweet malt profile. Honeyed apples. Smooth and easy to drink for nearly 10%. Overall, pretty cool stuff.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled@HBF 2013) Hazy pale golden with a medium head (didn’t get a whole bottle, so dunno if the Duvel head is intact in this). Herby lime nose with soft cat pee. Flavor of cat pee and dish-washing liquid, with a nasty pungent bitterness hitting you in the finish, like you already didn’t have enough of this s**t. Medium body, hidden alcohol, soft CO2. A great beer spoiled with totally wrong hops. The tripel hop series has gone worse with each incarnation.
