Bottle@home. One finger white foam. Straw yellow slight hazy. God malty nutty aromas compared to the light colour. More crisp than bitter. Delicate.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(33 cl bottle) Yellow colour, hazy, with a white head. Aroma: spicy, fruity (pears?) and yeasty, delicate hops, hints of bubblegum. Taste is light to medium bitterness, light sweetness. Medium to full body. Definitely walks in Duvel’s footsteps, and fills them quite nicely.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours to a very light golden colour with a nice white head. The head retention is good. The aroma is fruity and intense. The body is that of a typical Belgian strong ale, thick, slightly sticky and smooth. The taste is bitter-sweet, increasing in bitterness towards the finish. Long and complex hoppy finish.

Bottle. Slightly hazy pale straw body with a huge white head. Highly carbonated. Aroma-taste: grainy, with some spicey coriander seed. Sweet herbal taste reveals a significant background bitterness and a firm bitter finish. Light bodied.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured hazy, paler golden with with a fluffy white head that settled down to a dusting after a while. The aroma picked up warm fruits, cloves, banana, and a touch of honey, with warmth and more spices filling out the back of the nose. The flavor found bready notes, honey, and a little banana at the core, with black pepper, cloves, and floral notes laced throughout.. citrus bitterness joined toward the back.. spicy and well-balanced. Medium-plus bodied and very dry on the palate.. higher carbonation.. solid brew.
