kareljandebacker (18) - Balgerhoeke, - MAY 11, 2014
Quite different from the former trippel hops by duvel. A little too much citrus for my taste.

McWorta (1196) - LUXEMBOURG - JAN 24, 2016
Crystal clear and bright golden offering a large well lasting fluffy white head. Aromas of citrussy, grassy and grapefruit zest with notes of cereal tdevelop. Also offers notes of tropical fruit like mandarine. Rather effervescent with a slick texture and a full yet elegant body. Light cereal-straw sweetness with a fruity hop bitterness. Rather lasting light dry bit astringent finish.

The nice belgian blonde Duvel is there in the base. Quite interesting to add a more hops . I prefer the regular Duvel i think...

FROTHINGSLOSH (5969) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a vibrant dark golden color with an enormous fluffy white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was tart and effervescent with a yeast note, a bit of mustiness and a tangy citric hop presence. The flavor was tart, spritzy, tangy and citric with perfumey hops and a dry, musty and yeasty undertone. Medium length finish. Medium body. Decent.

Great beer with a heavy head, also after few minutes, I feel citrus with a small bitterness

pityu (461) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle - Hazy golden colour, big pillowy white head, excellent retention and lacing. Intense fruity and resinous hop aromas, orange peel, tangerine, yeast. Taste is grainy and intense fruity, tangerine, grapefruit, red berries, banana, pine, lingering hop bitterness in the end. Medium body and carbonation, slick texture, beautiful hoppy finish. Alcohol is well hidden. A very exciting, balanced hoppy belgian strong ale.
