COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fermented with traditional Belgian barley, yeast and candi sugar we have taken the liberty of adding a generous amount of the finest honey to create the only ale of its kind. Lightly carbonated when bottled or with a thick head and fantastic ’belgian lace’ when poured from the tap. At 8.2% ABV it is similar to a tripel, but paler, drier and lighter bodied due to the honey. The style is often named after the devil and of course we have taken the oportunity to do the same - our version, "Diabhal" or Devil in Irish.

Clear bright copper like a new penny with a fizzy head. Sweet honey and cereal malt aroma with a little fruity candy sugar. Wonderful mead-like flavour with effervescent honey and honey malt tones, a little belgian biscuitiness, bright candy sugar, and pear-apple kinda flavours, and a little caramel nuttiness. Bright and complex.

Draught @ Rabbits Foot Meadery, Sunnyvale, CA
Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, yeast, honey, floral and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a warm, boozy and floral finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (13563) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 8, 2013
On tap at the brewery. It’s a hazy, orange-golden beer topped by a finger-thick white head. The aroma is sweetish and honey-ish, with caramel and some alcohol. Rather fruity and peachy. Warming on the palate, medium to full body. Sweet and fruity flavor with some honey and peaches. Caramel hints. Lasting finish. A beer that shows off too much of it’s ABV, else quite nice. 130808

bytemesis (3152) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Tap. Pours hazy light amber with a large beige head, creamy with good lacing. Aroma is candi sugar and honey dominated. Flavor is the same, quite sweet, too sweet, with a bit of citric bitterness. Medium body.

oc4111 (119) - USA - AUG 11, 2012
500ml bottle poured into a Bruery tulip glass. Pours a hazy golden color with a nice billowy head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma and taste is sweet. Candied sugar, honey and fruit. No alcohol burn which is suprising considering that this is over 8% abv. Overall an interesting beer.

Sad to say the label was what I liked most, poured from bottle into a trappist glass, no head to speak of aroma is almost non existant but the sweetness is there, taste is overpoweringly sweet minimal carbonation, not my style but I am sure this would appeal to many who like sweetness...

Syzzer (590) - Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Fascinating flavored belgian beer. This is a must try. Solid sweet wheat without any syrupy-ness. There is a sweet yeasty start that opens for a honey-cran/grape tone. Grape jelly aroma. Really smooth finish. Delicious.

jgb9348 (4737) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2012
Super hazy deep copper coloured body with a off-white head, about a centimetre tall, and some honey glow makes it nice. Aroma of malt, honey, yeast, sugars, flowers and a touch of light spice. Medium to Full-bodied; Deep wheat and yeastie flavours with a lot of sugars, some floral notes, a touch of honey and some very light earthy spices. Aftertaste is mostly sweet with a ton of honey notes, a little lemon and citrus flavour and finishes with a lot of malt and yeast. Overall, a decent belgie with some good flavours and a nice, subtle complexity. I sampled this 50 cL swing-top bottle purchased from BevMo! in San Francisco (Geary Blvd), California on 14-January-2012 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 22-April-2012.
