Looks like Duvel. Tastes like Duvel. A little more lemon characteristic on the nose. Hint of spicy ness on the palate courtesy of the sorachi. Yeast is prominant. Rather have a straight up Duvel if I’m honest.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought somewhere in Belgium. Hazy golden with a huge white head. Spicy melon and pineapple aroma with some freshly cut grass. Taste is familiar Duvel with a hoptwist, just like it was meant to be. Perfect for a long hot summer afternoon.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Flaske fra Belgisk Bryg delt med Ovesen: uklar lys gylden, med Blendahvitt skum. Aroma av lime og sitrondrops (+ørlittegranne kattepiss fra Sorachi Ace-humlen). Bruser i munnen, med lime- og grapefruktsmak. Foretrekker så absolutt den klassiske Duvel. Nytt forsøk på Mandag i annen, takk til Strag: bedre enn jeg husker, både i aroma og smak. "Voldig bra aroma" iflg Arne. Lukter nyslått plen og sitrongress. Foretrekker fortsatt klassikeren, men opp fra 2.9 til 3.3.
