Hazy golden color with a huge frothy white head. Lots of carbonation. Aroma of spice and light yeastiness. Sweet malt, some fruit, light citrus, and some yeast in the flavor.

330 ml - Big hiss when opened. Pours a golden color with a good size WHITE head. Aroma is of Belgium yeast. Flavor is full of esters. Has a wheat beer character. Light to medium body. Decent beer.

Bottle, into a Duvel tulip. Not many beers absolutley have to be sipped from the brewery specific glass. This helps immensely with Duvel. Huge head threatens to overtake the rim of the glass. As it settles a block-type D forms on the head, a result of the D etched on the bottom of the glass and the torrent, tornado of bubbles that form in the center of the glass. Very reminesent of Grand Brut Champagne. This beer drips of pear sweet malt and citrusy hop spice. The beer dances on the palate with it’s carbonation and the sweetnesss of sugar and alcohol are quickly masked and balanced by the generous hop addition. There is nothing like this in the world. Many have tried. Just a classic to behold. The worst part of this beer is the craving that I have for another glass as soon as one’s finished.

Bottled - Poured a nice golden yellow that had a huge head. Had a nice taste of melting yeast and hops and was a perfect sipping beer while I watched movies.

Very good beer. Pours a golden color with a HUGE white head. Tastes very yeasty, almost wheaty with dry alcohol finish. Hops are almost undetectable. A very tasty beer, but not as complex as I’d like.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a grand style of belgian. Too simplistic. Pours pale yellow with a thick white head with nice retention. Mostly yeast in the nose along with banana. Very carbonated, but doesn’t interfere with the palate. Palate is oh so dry with an iron sort of taste and hops. Finish remains dry. No hint of alcohol anywhere even with the 8.5% of it.

bottle, nice head, very much CO2, it explodes on your tounge. Very delicate taste, hoppy, a little too sweet, less bitter.
