Etiquette simplissime sur le thème à peine évident de la symphonie. Capsule encore plus dépouillée : noir brut. Collaboration Belgium / US pour cette bière avec une volonté de développer le thème de l’ale IPA, en une double india pale ale, d’un niveau de 7,8 % abv. Couleur ambre moyen. Clarté avec un très léger voile diaphane. Bulles moyennes très faibles, mais la mousse est strictement extraordinaire blanc beige à cratères profonds, qui tient à 1 cm. Arômes de houblons superbes, avoine, pomme rouge, abricot, pointe de mangue. 1ère bouche souple sur de magnifiques houblons multiples, des fleurs blanches. Arrière-bouche d’une superbe amertume. 2ème sur une symphonie de houblons. 3ème où la fusion est là : équilibre malt/houblon magnifique. Arrière-bouche fine, fraîche, d’une superbe longueur. La longueur est en constante évolution. La levure est lisse, belle, douce, fleurie. L’alcool est en grande progression, il fait un remarquable travail, du plus bel effet pour un niveau en-dessous de 8. Comme quoi, 7,8 abv peut représenter un bon niveau si on s’y consacre à plein régime... La finale est un vrai point d’orgue à cette bière. Conclusion : dans un verre à Duvel, j’ai donc trouvé une réalisation exceptionnelle, œuvre conjointe de la petite Belgique et de la grande Amérique. Que de joie à constater et surtout déguster la réussite de pareille œuvre commune... Une vraie aventure sur le houblon.

vickey9 (656) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 6, 2013
Cloudy amber with small white head. Nose is sweet and bitter, lemony with touch of pineapple, grapefruit and bitter herbs. Taste is bitter and a bit sweet, body full, texture a bit oily. Carbon quite enough. Palate is dominated by grapefruit, orange and lemon peel. Really nicel bitter sweef fantasy! Bitter finish. B@H

DocLock (8341) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Squat bottle. Pours turbid dark straw orangy with 3-finger off-white head. Nose is funky rock sugary malt, resiny peppery hops, some fruit. Tastes of Belgian malt, hops, fruit, and black pepper. Very complex. Stays on the sweet side, with the hops and funky and fruity hints staying throughout. This one is very good.

fiulijn (16003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2011
Bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels
Cloudy deep blond color; generous head. Very nice hoppy aroma, fruity, fresh, without a particular fruit prevailing, maybe oranges; but also mild spices, and the combination is elegant. Lean body, with good dry malt flavor, quite sharp spicy character, followed by a correct bitterness, with quality hopping, resiny before fruity. Excellent.

lachrymalisis (419) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2011 yeast spice, medium sweetness from medium-colored Belgian fruit hints, golden raisins, apricots, etc. Grass and fair hop crispness. thick, sturdy head that stays for the whole glass. amazing yeast, very much the featured highlight of this beer. very nice dry almost champagne-like finish. ABV is hidden; could drink many of these in a row. very good beer.

Swaroga (1637) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2012
33cl bottle. Hazy with bits in it, yellow orange liquid with little white head. Nose : tart with alcohol, pine, citrus zest. Strong yeast. Sip : low to medium density with some carbonation. Strange texture , nor creamy neither oily.... Sweet with well balanced refreshing development. Strong yeast and working even while you swallow it. The bitterness isn’t as strong as a regular IPA but it’s there and is mostly aromatic with citrus and pine. It’s rather strange beer I must say but really good. I wouldn’t call it IPA but I will come back to it. Hides well the alcohol.
