COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a strong blonde beer, full of character with tertiary fermentation in the bottle yet still very accessible. Alc. 8% vol. Taste: The traditional Grimbergen recipe is enriched here trough the use of aromatic hops, which gives the beer its refined bitterness and hoppy character. The result is a refreshingly strong blonde beer.

Bottle at The Fiddler, Den Haag. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is sweet fruity, floral hop. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a huge crisp, sharp yeast, dry hop, alcohol bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. The aroma was special but the palate felt like is was going to suck all the moisture out of my mouth! Rather like a KLM sandwich then :-)

Marcius (190) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Appearance with golden color, liquid turbid (medium) and nice head of foam. Floral aroma (hops). On the palate, a fruity flavor (melon), malt and alcohol. Excellent Strong Ale, this Grimbergen points to Duvel!

Tastes like the Grimbergen tripel, but has an extra touch of Belgian aromahops, which gives the beer a fresh grassy note. Nice.
