For this 2014 edition, our brewers have selected Mosaic. This new US hop variety enhances the beer with a tangerine sweetness, hints of tropical fruit and an interesting blueberry flavour.

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.

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 (1550) - 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).

altonbrownd (4312) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle in Brussels. Nice golden body with big head. Nose is citrus, hops and spices. Taste of lots of hops, spices and bitter notes. Really good beer!

hrabren (305) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 19, 2015
Hazy pale yellow with small white head. Pear, citrus hops. Bitter, herbal, citrus. Acidity in the beginning, hoppiness. Dry finish. Medium body. Hoppy, but I like the original better.

Ysok02 (458) - MOns, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2015
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

Bottle. Clear golden color with good white head. Aroma: citrus, floral and something spicy. Taste slightly sour citrus, wine, alcoholized, but I liked it.

Stew41 (1811) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2015
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.
