Beergaard (114) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2014
Slightly Better than the 2013 batch. Pale yellow murky beer, short lived white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, tropical fruit and fresh fruit. Yeasty and hoppy taste of tropical fruit, berries, citrus, some malt. Very refreshing and still somewhat heavy. Very nice.

TheCaptMatey (89) - Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Poured a cloudy yellow colour with a thick 2 inch white head that had great retention, but left spotty lacing. Light hoppy aroma with notes of herbal citrus fruits and hints of berry. Taste is spicy herbs with moderate bitterness and faint bits of sweet tropic fruits, but not much of the blueberry mentioned on the bottle. Crisp and light alcohol finish to this medium bodied and medium carbonated brew.

Listigovers (345) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2014
Beautiful clear golden Duvel pour with a big foamy white head. Smells like herbs, basil primarily, grassy. Sparkling mouthfeel, slightly oily, very crisp and dry, berry flavours, yeast, a bit of alcohol, medium bodied. Really nice.

Rastacouere (6136) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
Clearish fizzy gold covered by the usual boastful white head. Pretty complex nose showcasing a broad hop profile whilst not being explosive and actually feeling rather balanced for a hop forward ale. The pils malts provide cracker-like flavours that the yeast complements with its usual doughy touch and peppery closure herein combining with the earthy side of the hops which otherwise play mostly in the flowery and fruity registries. No dominating flavours and limited citrus or resin character; instead, we’re in mango, pineapple or white grapes territories. Fairly juicy and really lean and dry for a 9.5% ale - you would never believe that if it were not divulged. Interesting take and something I would be happy to drink regularly.

Taste is highly aromartic . Rather green . Very herbal hops . Even though wjen they say it tastes like berries , and the idea gets in my head to describe the scent , i taste 0 berries here . Bitter , just like other editions not to much

The beer is clear golden with a thin layer of head, it looks delicious. The taste is absolutely delicious. The fresh grass and blueberries that you smell in the beer, is also in the taste of the beer, which makes it a really fresh beer. The taste is not really bitter, it only has a bitter aftertaste.

onceblind (4472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Clear light golden with an uneven rocky white head. The hop forward nose has notes of tangerine and earthy bubblegum and blueberry bitter resiny tones. Odd. The flavor is a bit too bready and alcoholic with strong booze esters mixing with that odd belgian yeasty bubblegummy tone that also brings in some bitter mango and bitter blueberries from the hop selection. Quite strange and fruity and bitter and boozy.

ctiry (80) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 18, 2014
Golden orange colour with big white head leaving lancing. Citric to yeast aroma. Medium body with citrus fruits from the hops. Pleasant balance of bitterness and malty taste. Nice one next to standart Duvel.
