3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well what can I say? Duvel is so highly rated, but just does not fit my taste. The beer is good, don’t get me wrong, but does not blow me away as a king of beers. The aroma was great with a moderate yeasty kind of a doughy smell to it. A hint of honey was also detected and lasted all the way through the drink. The look and appearance is what really amazed me about the beer as it had a frothy fully lasting white head to it, and looked as if it were dancing in the glass. The golden hue was sparkling all the way down to the bottom and was clear as can be. Once I tasted it, it struck me with a heavy acidic flavor both in the beginning and the end. The yeast comes through with a hint of citrus and a long finishing flavor that lingers on the plate. Almost like a slight metallic finishing flavor to it. It had a light dry body that fizzed in my mouth. Again it seemed to have a bit of a metallic aftermath to it. A beer that would be good in paring with food, but not one I would chug. It does have some nice refreshment value to it. A beer that is to be celebrated and enjoyed, however, not an everyday type of beer I would consider. Drink on.

BBE 11-2016. Kultaisen kuulas, iso ja nopea vaahto. Ilmava, sammunut, raikkaahko tuoksu. Suutuntuma makean hedelmäinen, kuohuva, hapokkaahko, myös jokin outo elementti. Ei erityisen nautittavaa, mutta keskitasoa parempaa.

Butelka 330ml. Z?ote w kolorze o obfitej bia?ej pianie. Widaç jak to piwo zyje w odpowiedniej szklance pieknie "buzujac". W zapachu czuc drozdze lekkie cytrusy i banany. Piwo wydaje sie lekkie mimo 8,5 procenta bogate smakowo i swietnie zbalansowane. W smaku czuc banany cytrusy kolander i delikatny chmielowy finisz. Swietny przyklad belgiskiego piwa.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear yellow with a large white head with good retention and lace. Nose has honey, grass, hay, golden bread. Flavour follows: honey, dry flowers, golden bread, white pepper, hay, dry grass, apricot, peach. Medium body, lively carbonation, mild sweet with matching bitterness. Crisp finish with lingering honey. The alcohol doesn’t show and it drinks all too easy. Perhaps the flavours could be a bit brighter, but the mouthfeel and finish is very pleasant. Fine beverage.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The purest white pillow of everlasting dense foam on top of clear straw color. Aroma is slight citrus zest and mild spice. Yeasty esters dominate the taste. It’s fairly dry, and very carbonated. with a bit of a tart finish I enjoy Delirium more.
