3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the Lost Abbey beers, this one imitating the Belgian Duvel style, apparently. Off-white, irregular, sticky head, warm orange blonde colour with vivid sparkling, clear but misty after adding the deposit but keeping its warm orange hue. Powerfully fruity nose of pineapple, orange juice, apple peel, vanilla, ginger, banana liqueur, white wine, honey, pepper; overwhelmingly fruity taste with sharp, fresh citrus character and strong, mineral-like carbonation on a smooth and supple, caramelly and honeyishly malty basis, bit oily mouthfeel, spiciness evolving into a long, aromatic hop bitterness with hints of citrus and tonic water, complex and dry. Very American and very enjoyable take on a classic Belgian style.
