3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. (I don’t know which is correct temperature for this, I drank this little bit colder than room temperature) Thick white foam. Strong aroma of malts, little bit weisse-like, also soapy aroma, which isn’t really nice. Yellow colour. Palate is semi-thick, medium carobante. Aroma is interesting combination of wheat and barley. There’s some acidic fruit aftertaste, like green apple.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A Mes rate:
33cl bottle shared with Gavsta and Rascal while trying to persuade Gav not to trash the hotel room. Golden colur with a thin white head. Sweet alcohol with huge hoppage and some nice spice. Slight sweetness from the malt but over all it’s all about the hops. Bit of sweetcorn too. Bitter hoppy finish. Not particularly interesting but enjoyable to drink.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep yellow, frothy head which dissipates. Sweet and lightly spicy aroma, corriander maybe. A tad fizzy on the tongue, but otherwise pleasant sweet light malty palate. Light grainy taste, wheaty even, and a very crisp bitter finisb. Slightly alcoholic, but not imposingly so.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich, but clear, golden body is crowned by a creamy white head that slowly descends into a skim of whipped cream.
Honeysuckle and a solid pilsener malt base make up much of the olfactory experience. Hefeweizen like elements of clove and banana appear in moderation. Further spicing continues along the way of cracked black pepper. Dried hay and fresh linen round out the soft but pleasant aroma.
The flavour is sweet with breads, bananas and marshmallow cream, picking up some spicy acidity towards the finish. Lingering are notes of water crackers and pepper.
Not much more than medium bodied, but with a supple texture, sliding from slick to creamy. The carbonation could stand to be a little firmer, but works.
Fresh and clean overall. Seeming underpowered and reserved keeps it from scoring higher. 75cl bottle, Duvel tulip, bbe 28-12-08.

Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white fluffy head. Aroma is malts, spices, citrus and slight hints of alcohol. Flavour is smooth malts along with herbs and spices. Slight grapefruity notes also along with a nice alcoholic touch to it. Gets even nicer when warming up a bit.
