Quite different from the former trippel hops by duvel. A little too much citrus for my taste.

Bottled. Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, some herbs, yeast, mild floral and fruity notes as well. Flavour is rather similar, but also has a quite nice malty body to it. Flavour also has a slight sting of alcohol as the beer warms up a slight bit.

Doofgoblin (379) - Chevy Chase, Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Delish! Aroma is sweet tropical fruit mixed with doughy esters. Taste is some tropical fruit notes and a subtle blueberry like flavor. The lightly toasted malt flavors finish off the brew and make it sweet and refreshing (plenty of carbonation). Overall, if you like belgian ales then this is a interesting take with the added hop complexity.

arminjewell (7045) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Pour out of 330 cl bottle, slightly hazy golden-orange pour with nice fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of herbs, spice, slight orange and lemon into a bit of tangerine, slight biscuit, doughy tone as well. Taste was a mix of orange, tangerine, slight tropical fruit into a bit of spice, yeast, touch of doughy notes with a hint of biscuit, finishing bitter, spicy. Excellent and refreshing.

Pours a blonde colour, aroma and taste is extremely hoppy with tropical fruit, refreshing pine on the palate, best beer for a long while

Espuma persistente, color amarillo turbio. Aroma intenso herbal y frutas tropicales. El sabor es también intenso y predominante el lúpulo. Buena carbonatación. Final seco.

birraiolo (229) - ITALY - FEB 20, 2015
Bottiglia da 33 cl. Color oro con schiuma bianca fine di media tenuta. Al naso è un’esplosione di profumi che vanno dall’agrumato all’erbaceo al fruttato e resinoso. Al palato l’alcool è ben attenuato da tutte le varie sfumature di sapori che aytraversano le papille gustative. Ottima e beverina malgrado i suoi 9, 5 gradi.

Bottle at home. Boozy and delicious. And boozy beer is a good thing. That’s why I was having a mammary lapse for sure. Booze!

ROSE1962 (9) - POLAND - FEB 16, 2015 does not count
Barwa złota, mglista. Piana biała, dość wysoka jednak grubo pęcherzykowata, z czasem opada ale cienka warstwa utrzymuje się do końca. Aromat bardzo intensywny, bucha już po otwarciu butelki, bardzo przyjemny, cytrusowy, orzeźwiający. Czuć również chmiel, przy mocnym zaciągnięciu można wyczuć też alkohol. Smak rewelacyjny. Owocowy, gruszki, cytrusy, oraz chmielowy na końcu. Słodowość i goryczka zbalansowana i żadna z nich nie wychodzi na czoło. Idealnie zgrane te dwa oczucia, które w sposób rewelacyjny maskują wysoki woltaż. Ogólne wrażenie jest bardzo pozytywne, piwo warte swojej ceny.

Sevenlee (1451) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2015
Pours a clear medium yellow colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, light heavy hoppy, grass, moderate citrus and fruit. Taste is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with dry finish. Good stuff.
