Bottle. Colour...deep gold with a thick white head. Nose..quite yeasty a d sweetly spicy with honeysuckle and black locust flowers. Palate...moderate CO2 with a dry feeling up front. There’s plenty of Beligian character here and light citrusy fruit to go along with the peach and apricot essence that dances across the palate.

Bottle. Pours a light clear pale gold with a small white head. Aroma is nicely floral, light fruitiness, grassy with notes of spice and herbal note. Flavor has much the same, very aggressive floral character, bright apricot and citrus with a lightly bitter finish. Medium body and crisp carbonation. Good beer

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden color with a ton of carbonation and a very tall, dense off-white colored head. Aroma has a light lemon citrus nose, light grassy hints, light yeasty, spicy presence with a mild, clean pale malt finish. Flavor starts off with a modest Belgian yeasty kick and quickly moves into an orange/lemon citrus presence and finishes with some low generic hop bitterness and light pale malt. Body is very light and slightly watery in texture with a high fizzy feeling. Overall a good brew but I think it would of been fantastic with just a tad bit more body.

The aroma is really what sets this off--very light with a hint of orange. Smells like a beer for warm summer months. Coppery appearance with little head. Taste is light and crisp with a clean palate--little aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the brewery during Zwickelmania 2013. Estery, sweetish, honey, some cat pee. Hazy dark straw color. Very mild fruity initial / goes tangy with light fruit (pears, peaches) in mid palate / finish is not quite cloying, but almost. Medium body, with a very smooth mouthfeel. As close to Duvel as I’ve had from a US brewer, but without that beer’s bright flavors. A very good Belgian-style blonde ale.
