3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Been waiting to try this for a long time. Pours a very light yellow and a big fluffy white head. Aroma is not the strongest however it has some nice fruity notes and typical Belgian smells. This beer was a lot lighter than I expected. Dark fruits, Belgian yeast and some caramel flavours dominate the taste. The more you drink, the more alcohol became more prominent. Not my favorite Belgian ale but still very good.

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.

A Blonde Belgian beer with a full flavour and a great aroma. A nice head on the beer and a smooth taste.

Big beer this one in terms of status. Its got a king or emperor like status in the beer world and rightly so. Great pastel, dehydrated piss appearance with light bubbles, love it. Pear drop aroma and lovely, smells floral and tasteful perfume that a glamorous granny wears. Taste, magical, don’t serve too cold as the sanguine floral pear aromas will be muted. Cant believe its 8.5. Palate, actually annoyingly disappointing as its fizzy and too thin and should hold in the mouth better giving you bigger bang for your 1.75 (sainsburys now, get em in). I’ve tossed between 2/5 and 3 for the palate cos I don’t want to mark it down so its a 2.5. Great beer and went down a treat with my brie and apple baguette.

Herb und kräftig. Sehr schaumig. Leicht metallischer Geschmack. Hat kaum Fruchtnoten und wenig Malzaroma. Trotzdem ein gelungenes Starkbier.

Pours a clear, light golden color with a large, long lasting white head. Carbonation bubbles migrate from the bottom of the glass feeding the head.There is an immediate tartness in the nose. However, a sweeter raisin and bread emerge.it has a soft water mouth feel, with moderate liveliness from the carbonation. There is a competing sweetness with the tartness. A Belgian earthiness emerges. raisin and bread are noted as well

bottle @ home. Pours a clear straw colored liquid. It boasts a huge white head. The nose is dry with some sweetness. Herbal & fruity notes. Pear, yeast, malt, wheat, warming but well hidden alcohol. Dry clean and balanced taste with sweet maltiness, spices, yeast, alcohol, pear, orange zest, pepper. Lasting bitterness.

I am a fan of IPAs and I search out strong, slightly bitter, high alcohol brews. Duval only reaches about midway on this goal.
