Nice take on a classic beer. The extra hop gives it a nice twitch but also makes it quite high on alcohol. Good beer to try if you like Duvel, but personally I didn’t find it worth trying again.

monkeychugg55 (972) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2015
Golden, slightly hazy, nice creamy lasting head and trademark lacing. Mellow addition of citrus, grass, and floral hops onto familiar Duvel base. The flavor comes across with a little more grassy and woody character...somewhat resinous. Aside from that, nice hidden alcohol and familiar yeast character, Hopefully I can try this year’s before it’s a year old.

Nephilium (1571) - Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2015
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).
