3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear gold pour with foamy white head, typical duvel. Aroma is very surprising, smells like white wine, probably the winiest smelling beer I’ve had. Aroma of grapes, light citrus notes, perfumey floral aromas. Taste is also winey, fruity, tastes a tad sweet even though the body is quite dry, tannic. Palate is well carbed and super dry. Very interesting.

Bottle from beergium. clear yellow, smooth white head.
Nice hoppy aroma, mixed in with belgian yeast and malts, fresh hops.
Flavor is hoppy, fruity,yeasty , some interesting bitterness that seems to be a mix of bitter hops and spiciness from the belgian yeast, quite refreshing for a strong belgian. Alc well hidden.

Bière de couleur dorée avec un beau col blanc. Nez de houblons de céréales et de fruits. En bouche c’est très frais et fruité avec une bonne finale amère. Meilleure que la duvel originale. Excellente e surprenante!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle in Gabrovo, Bulgaria. Pours clear yellow-gold, lightly effervescent, with a large, white froth head. Loads of juicy hops in the nose, some melon, cat urine, pineapple. Medium sweet flavor with more juicy hop character, some tangerine, papaya, lemon meringue, decent pale malt sweetness and a bit of alcohol punch. Medium bodied with quite lively carbonation. Warming finish with vague astringency, faint grass, more melon, grapefruit, piss, lemon, pale bread and white grape. Interesting and pretty decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden yellow pour. Fair amount of carbonation and nice two finger head. Good aroma...not overwhelming but not surprising as the last several dry hopped beers I have had were dry hopped with Riwaka it Citra so other hops are naturally less punchy to me lately. Belgian yeast comes through and may downplay the hop notes overall. Good beer but don't look for this to satisfy a hop craving.
