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.

Una buona strong belga, non il massimo. La differenza in questa birra la fanno i lieviti più dei malti e dei luppoli boemi

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2014 One of the most famous blonde from Belgium. It can be found easily almost in every pub. I like the bottle and the label. My score seem to be low but it’s only because of the the palate

Une belle robe jaune. Dommage que la mousse ne tienne pas du tout.
Arômes fruités et maltés : pomme, agrumes, caramel. Longue en bouche et arrière-goût puissant.
Une bonne bière.
