I usually find this style to be uneventful but this one was solid. Easy drinker, a little sweet and very clean with a solid finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma has some spice and a lot of fruit with mellow hops. Taste is juicy and fruity for a blegian and has some spicey hops too. Delicious.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle. Smells like apple juice with a little sourdough bread thrown in. Hazy pale yellow with a big fluffy white head. Medium sweetness with lots of fruit flavors, lightly sour from the yeast. Medium body, lively carbonation, and a sweet long finish. This is a great beer, it almost reminds of of champagne.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden, white foam fades pretty quickly, smell is Belgian yeast, a touch of funk, fruit, hint of clove and pepper, taste is slight sweet, bitter, tangy citrus, nice finish, lots of flavor but they don’t quite come together. The beer has bite,although not overly bitter. The feel is a bit too thick for me, it lessens the refreshing quality. A touch alcoholic. A strong, aggressive, flavorful beer, enjoyable but a bit rough around the edges.

Courtesy Beerlando. Slightly cloudy golden color, thin white head. Sweet grainy aroma, Belgian yeast, slight spiciness. Almost flat mouthfeel, and has a general sweet character overall with some crisp fruitiness on the back end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden color with a minimal, bubbly, white head. The foam settles quickly to a wispy film. A soapy wash leaves virtually no lacing behind. Aromas include candy sugar, bready yeast, light caramel, and perfumy, floral hops. I can see instantly why some call this a Duvel clone. Flavors show more candy sugar, with hints of cotton candy and some apples coming through. Wildflowers lend some spice and bitterness. Medium bodied and lightly carbonated, this is fairly easy drinking considering the substantial ABV. Nice brew.
