Nice hint of citrus on the palate, great taste, hint of clove in the aroma.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2013 A musty aroma combined with citrus notes. Pours an attractive, hazy yellow with no head and little lacing. The taste, to begin with, is a restrained fruity sweetness, followed with citrus notes and then a bready finish. Medium-light mouthfeel with crisp, yet moderate carbonation. A refreshing dry finish. Overall, I think this beer met the intent of the brewers. It has the charactereistics of a Belgian ale as well as the charteristics of a farmhouse ale. Enjoyable.

Cloudy tan...certainly doesn’t have that Duvel head, aroma is appetizing, with sweet honey, some gentle spiciness, yeast complexity. The taste...I’m not sure this follows through. The orangey character is there but muted, the malts pushed more to the fore and are sweeter and the alcohol is Duvel-like but it doesn’t work as well with the hop dryness. Does not compare well to Duvel and only okay as a strong Belgian golden.

Bottle shared at Dadtoberfest. The aroma is sweet, earthy, pepper. The aroma was hazy gold, white head. The flavor was virtually the same. The finish was peppery, but a residual sweetness as well. Enjoyable.

Draft at Dutch-s. Clear light golden with a medium white head with sporadic lacing. Nose is mildly spicy and herbal with some banana fruitiness. The flavor is much of the same with a bit of solvent toward the finish. I don’t like this as much as regular Duvel.

Pale golden yellow pour, thin white head ... aroma of floral noble hops and spicy fruity yeast .... taste of sweet fruity yeast, caramel malts, spicy floral and noble hops .... has almost an identical flavor to duvel green ... finish is very dry fresh and hoppy with a lingering floral hop bite ... mouthfeel is crisp and little oily .. simple tasty with the abv hidden well

Bottle from Decicco Ardsley. Hazy golden orange with ring. Mildly tart green apple and green leafy aroma with a hint of pineapple. Mildly fruity sweet with hint of vanilla and herbal medium bitter finish. Just okay. Certainly not "elegant." Fresh Malheur 10 is elegant. This is just okay.

Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured a cloudy light amber colour. Clean, grainy malt flavor balanced by a stronger than expected hops bitterness. Strong black pepper phenol and Belgian yeast aftertastes. Light body, moderate carbonation, thin mouthfeel. Some alcohol warmth. I expected to love this beer, but it was only good not great.
