Big, fruity take on Duvel that doesn’t get the light, effervesent body right, but is still a decent tripel. Sweet and a moderate hop finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours orange tinged gold with a foamy off-white head. The aroma is quite fruity - full of mixed esters. Near full bodied. Flavor is pretty much exotic fruit with a nice caramel backing and some yeast/spice points. It’s very clean - which distinguishes it from many Belgians. The mouth feel is a little slick. Perhaps that’s an indicator of the alcohol. Otherwise the heat is in the exhalation. Very, very nice.
