3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Best before October of 2015.
Appearance: Hazy straw colored body with a towering white foamy head.
Aroma: Mild banana and malt sweetness with a candied lemon aroma. The aroma isn’t overly strong or offensive, I’m just not huge on it.
Taste: This tastes like the aroma, hints of banana, some candied lemon and straw. Easy to drink, but nothing exciting.
Palate: A tad watery with mild carbonation.
Overall: This is likely past it’s prime, but the date says it’s good til next year. I would pass on this at this point, it’s not very appealing, especially at the price.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma super lupulado com notas frutadas e cítricas. Aparência clara com médio corpo e uma espuma inesquecível. Sabor cítrico, com notas apimentadas e um amargor marcante. No palato, um final longo e levemente floral. No geral? MARAVILHOSA!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl. bottle poured in to a Duvel tulip. Unclear, golden colour with a huge, white head that slowly collapses to bubbly lumps. Fruity aroma with floral hops, grape, citrus, grasses and spices - the yeasty character known from the regular Duvel. Taste is bitter. Medium body with a lively carbonation - perhaps a little aggressive. Long lasting dry and bitter finish with fruits, yeasts and lingering citrus fruits. A lot bit of warmth from alcohol. Excellent, love the dry hopped versions.

330 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, best before 12/2015. Pours light hazy bright gold color with a 2 finger foamy and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, clove, pepper, floral, grass, herbal, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of hop, fruity/spicy yeast, and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, white grape, apple, pepper, clove, herbal, floral, grass, cracker, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, clove, floral, grass, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of hop, fruity/spicy yeast, and malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian IPA. All around great complexity and balance of hop, fruity/spicy yeast, and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Drinking from a 33cl bottle.
In the aroma hop bitterness, citrus, grapefruit and suddenly... yoghurt.
The clear golden beer has a sticky white head.
The main taste is bitter, not much more.
