3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly sweet aroma, with a hint of tropical fruits from the hops. Pours a slightly hazy pale straw with a huge white head. Slightly sweet flavor, with tropical fruit coming through again, a slight touch of bitterness comes through in the finish, with the high carbonation keeping it light. Very easy drinking, especially for the ABV (which is well hidden).

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Belle robe blonde, reflets verts, mousse abondante et crémeuse. Nez plus discret que la 2013, citron, mandarine, note florale, léger houblon. Bouche à l’attaque citronnée, de la fraîcheur, de la tension et une finale à la fois ample et amère sur l’écorce de mandarine. Un bière plus fraîche mais moins complexe que la 2013

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I guess this one has a little age. Fizzy with quite aniseed laden hops. It’s bitter but not in the crazy new world sense. I definitely see the tangerine, very unusual but quite subtle and kicks in late. Very unique and interesting.

Aroma of citrus. Taste of freshness and summer, though it is a heavy IPA. Great choice of hops. Overall well balanced and recommendable.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bottle. Excellent hybrid beer by Duvel. Good carbonation level, clean, crisp mouthfeel, with a decent hop presence without seeming quite like a golden IPA. This beer has a 9.5% ABV level, yet does not taste at all hot like so many others beers at this alcohol level. Really one of the best beers I’ve had in the past few years.

Bottle poured a clear gold with a lasting white head. Aromas of straw, yeast, citrus and light tropical fruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of straw, yeast, earthiness and light fruitiness with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.
