UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 75 cl bottle (11%) @ home, BBE 02.12.2012
Sweetish aroma with pear esther. Flavour is sweetish with pear esthers, some alcohol, belgian yeast and ripe fruits. Also a feeling of plastic glue due to all the pear esthers. Dry finish. Very foamy palate is too high on CO2.
75 cl bottle @ Dickie’s, Bruges. Rated on 15.07.2010
Fruity and sourish aroma with some spices and earthy notes. Flavour has spices, fruits and earthy notes. Really rich, tasty and good. One of the best blond belgian ales. 8-4-9-3-16 = 4.0

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared a 750ml bottle at Pub Italia with Chopz. Pours an insane amount of foamy, frothy white head. Has a hazy golden appearance. Thick dirty and sticky lacing. Aromas are citrusy, notes of yeast. Flavours are good mixture of earthy and citrus hops, quite yeasty, bready malts. Has a pretty bitter mouthfeel, mainly in the finish with a tiny bit of tartiness on the palate.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared with PaleAleRider at Pub Italia. Best before date is 01/08/2015 with a 11% ABV. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a warm cap, great retention and some foam lacing. Smooth Belgian yeast aromas over bread malts, mild spices and lemon citrus notes. Nice bitterness and very light tarty mouthfeel. Flavours of beautiful fruitiness with grass and hints of sugar. A very nicely-balanced Belgian Ale that is worth savouring... taking your time.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,7 l bottle shared
Appearance: A golden body with strong bubbles. On top there is a very big white head. The head colapses with quite some lacing.
Aroma: grainy malts, fruity esters, some lemon and honey.
Taste: moderarte sweet grain, fruits, honey, herbal-grassy hops.
Medium body, strong carbonation, boozy feeling (not there in the taste.)
Champagne beer ? Well it copied the carbonation and the fruityness with the hidden alcoholic boozy part, but aart from that the taste is just another Belgian Ale.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cloudy golden color, fizzy white head. Pleasant and fairly mild aroma with notes of flowers, butter and a cellar. The flavor hides the high ABV and comes out as an easy-going Duvel. Medium-full body, medium-high carbonation. Nice, though not quite in the league of Deus Brut des Flandres.
