33 cl (round bottle) Slight unclear pale piss yellow with a lasting egg white head. Sweet aroma of fruits, alcohol & yeast. Very sweet malty taste with a citrus touch. Yeast & wheat also dominant. Traces of honey... This had much more to offer than expected. OK...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle from Sainsbury. Hazy gold colour with fluffy white head. Not a huge aroma, some yeasty hoppy citrus. Fine in mouth with citrus hop finish. Fine if unexciting golden strong ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. 8.5%. Bottle. Spicy pepperiness in aroma, fresh ground pepper. Golden colour, big stable white head. Fruity flavour, thin mouthfeel. Not excactly watery, but the flavour is a bit thin. Nicely peppery, though, and a good example of a Belgian strong.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2006 Bottled. Well-carbonating, clear, golden-orange with a huge, large-bubbled, lasting off-white head and lots of floaties. Alcohol, apple, some yeast and cellar, and orange-notes in the aroma. Citrus, sugar, alcohol, wheat-notes and some spices in the flavor. Medium body and a finish with alcohol, fruit and spices. Expected more alcohol in this one, so it was a pleasant surprise. (060929)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy golden; aroma of alcohol, peach, biscuit, slight bit of paint thinner (effin' Riva again with the phenols), faint cardamom. Body has a plasticy, fizzy feel. Peppery character, a little bread, a little acidity. These wanna-be Duvels have a tough time coming into the same ballpark - gives me more respect for the original.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (BBE 09/2009)
Pale yellow color, lively white head. Foam wants to come out from the bottle. Aroma has citron, yeast, cardboard and some honey. Medium-bodied. Fruity, sweet yeasty, almost sugary. Hoppy bitterness in the finish. Finish has metal sharpness and alcohol. Quite enjoyable, but could have more bitterness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ Belgisk Bryg, Cph.
Pours pale yellow, good deal of bubbles. Small, frothy white head nice duration. Aroma is a bit metallic, some yeastiness and biscuity malts. Light citrusy. Fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely sweet, good maltiness. Still a lingering off-note of metal. Rather sweet and the metal doesn’t do it any favours.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Sun Devil in Mesa, AZ. Hazy golden body with a huge off-white head. Mild aromas of kandi, pale malt and a mild spicy fruit. Medium body with smooth carbonation. It starts sweet but something like citrus zest cuts that. It’s not citrus though. It’s very smooth. Not so strongly flavored as some. Deceptive as to alcohol. A little light stone fruit in the finish.
