2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Picked this up about 4 months ago in Vermont.
A - Nice gold clarity, although a few specs of yeast or hops still floating around
S - Smells like granny smith apples, grape skins and juicy juice box juice.
T - Sweet, hint of funkiness and some barnyard with a very almost ashtray like finish. Very moldy / muddy, could be confused with earthy but nope. Great start just like Duvel. Finish is not forgettable in a bad way.
M - Nice carbonation
O - Itís a shame this isnít very good. Not a drain pour but close.

If I am going to drink a beer above eight percent, I expect more flavor. Pours light gold, thin, and with a tiny amount of head. The flavor seemed synthetic. Yes, that description is not very qualitative, but synthetic was the term that came to mind. Not my thing. Bottle - Leonís Full Service - Decatur, GA

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, a lot of banana, some floral hops, and pale malts. Flavor about the same, with a nice blend of everything but a little too much banana. Average texture. A decent Belgian style beer.

On tap, golden yellow pour with white foam, a better Duvel than Duvel, bright fruity flavors with interesting funky yeast aroma, clean finish

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml. corked ní caged bottle- Pours cloudy golden with a one finger white head. Aroma is very yeasty, pepper. Taste is very creamy and delicious, yeasty, peppery, not much barnyard which is what I was hoping for, but this is good, classic tasting. Body is medium, carbonation is medium, finish is creamy and mouth coating. Overall I am not going to go into if this is better than regular old Duvel, which is a wonderful beer. This beer deserves itís own identity in my opinion, I loved it, very classic Belgian taste, drinkable as hell (whatever that means!), awesome and I would definitely have this again.
