COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Four generations of the Moortgat family have brought together Pilsner malts, Bohemian hops, and a unique yeast strain to create this intense, aromatic and beguiling ale. This Belgian favourite is best enjoyed chilled (40 - 50 F) with discerning friends or good-looking strangers.

Thick long lasting head atop a hazy yellow beer. Crisp citrus flavour on the tongue with a alcoholic warmth on the way down (8.5% in the bottle means this packs a serious kick!) Very enjoyable and definitely one I’ll buy again!

Slightly hazy golden pour with a white head. Sweet aromas of banana, Belgian sugar, citrus, and malt. Flavor is malty and subtle banana. Very easy to drink. Respectable offering.

massingasetta (150) - München, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2014
Sieht appetitlich aus und riecht gut. Schaum war nicht mehr als in Ordnung. Farbe ist leicht bräunlich Gold. Einstieg ist frisch und würzig, vor allem im Verhältnis zum Alkoholgehalt. Körper und Abgang ist feinwürzig und fruchtig, leichte süssliche Noten kommen auch vor. Der Alkohol ist fast nicht spürbar, bis auf ein leichten Hauch im Abgang. Dieses Bier ist wahnsinnig süffig- vorsicht.

Hazy yellow colour with a light white head. Effervescent on the tongue with light taste of citrus. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy yellow with a huge pillowy head. Aroma of sweet bananas and caramel. A nice toasted malt flavor with hints of banana and citrus and almost a grassy flavor towards the end.

Lele (84) - ITALY - JUN 24, 2014
Ottima birra, corposa e dissetante allo stesso tempo. In bocca si sentono in due tempi sia il dolce che l’amaro, ambedue non invasivi. Ben bilanciata.

330ml bottle ($3.82) from Premier in Halifax. Aroma has pleasant hints of citrus hops. Pours an almost clear pale golden colour, with white head. Has a light sweet taste. Body is medium, oily texture, with lively carbonation. I remember drinking a darker Duvel a few years ago, so it was a bit disappointing to see that this one is so pale. Still a great brew.
