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.

Bottle. Pours golden with a massive white head that slowly dissipates to a fluffy quarter-inch head. Aromas of cut grass and bitter citrus. Flavors of sweet malt, fruity esters, cut grass, citrus, bready notes. Slightly tart finish with black pepper. Medium to highly carbonated. Clean mouthfeel. Crisp, peppery, fruity and bready. Delicious.

I expected better. Pours a nice golden colour with a frothy head that gets quite thin. It is overly carbonated which distracts your palate from the taste. The aromas aren’t that prominent. Mainly hops and a little fruit. That taste is similar to the smell. Its not that strong. Perhaps better drank in hot weather for a refreshing feel. Its not technically bad but its not quite got the balance. I’ll probably have again though.

bottle Much lighter color than I remember from days past, but aroma is satisfying and the feel on the tongue is pleasing. Overall a very good beer and one I should keep in regular rotation. Strong, enough so that the alcohol sneaks up on you....be careful. Definitely worth trying.

Bottle at home. Hazy yellow colour with a longlasting white head. Nose is grassy, zesty. Taste is also grassy less zest. Dry and refreshing. This is the beer that got me into craft, and I love it ever since. Thx Krepo.

For the price I had to pay for this one it was a disappointment, had a metallic flavor a bit skunky.
