2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass.
THIS is an insult to beers. She got nothing special : no particular aroma, taste nor palate, a light blond color, light head...
Don’t pay for it.

Een prima tripel. Het is een licht smakend, niet erg uitgesproken bier. Mooie schuimkop en drinkt goed weg.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Time for a re-rating of this Duvel epigone. Pours a deep golden blonde, hazy, with little visible fizz, under a creamy, thick, sticky, egg-white head consisting of smallish bubbles and showing quite remarkable retention. Aroma of raw cauliflower, very obvious iron, green apple, powder sugar, soap, peach, some sulphuric lightstruck effect (cat pee) quickly fading away as usual (fortunately), vermouth, wet hay, calvados, freshly cut grass. Taste starts with a vivid, somewhat estery fruitiness in a very subdued way, green apple and green plums, then more sourish, grainy, minerally, metallic, even a bit harsh, hard to pour down. The metallic feel lasts till deep into the finish, where the weary graininess is accompanied by a grassy and leafy, kind of dull hop bitterness and clear ’jenever’-like alcohol with warming, but also somewhat astringent effect, though admittedly it’s the malt sweetness you’ll remember as its last taste. It is no secret this beer began its existence darker (much more orange-coloured), yeastier and sweeter, and if you ask me, they had better kept it that way, I liked this a lot more ten years ago. This current version is just another insult to the Duvel standard, I’m afraid, like Riva’s Lucifer or Alken-Maes’ Judas. Instead of trying to compete with the real thing, Roman had better gone its own way with this. Pity!

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Ordinary beer. Extremely weak aroma of grain (as for Belgian beer I mean). Taste of malt and grain. Bitter aftertaste

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
There’s probably other beers within this style that have more alcohol, but this one just seems the most boozy. Has all of the trademarks of the style but just isn’t memorable.
