3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2011 I have never had anything by this brewer before. I tried this one on draft at Pipers Pub in Pittsburgh. It poured a very dark red-brown color with a large tan head that lingered and left great lacing. . The aroma was sweet and hoppy with a bit of citrus noted and touches of pepper and toasted caramel. The flavor was fruity (apple and citrus), tart, and had a hint of spice and sour caramel. Medium finish and body. Solid.

I think this brew, being in a clear bottle and all, has a bit of trouble make a quality appearance in the states, very skunked. Aroma is very hard to tell, smells like some toffee and maybe a touch of hops, just hard to say with all the skunked qualities. Taste was a bit better, starts with a quick maltiness, caramel, then finishes with a fairly fruity bitterness. Pours a mahogany red with a small off-white head.

Slightly hazy, dark amber-brown. Thin, fizzy off-white foam. Slightly skunked (clear glass bottle), malty aroma w/ some earthy hops. Medium feel. Relatively bland malty flavour of licorice, brown sugar & caramel w/ a mild, earthy hoppiness.

Deep amber/brown color, full tan head. Pretty well balanced, some fruity hops and earthy malts. Medium bodied. Nothing out of this world with this one but pretty enjoyable.

duvel tulip glass / weird yet inviting aroma; sweat, grass, cheese, and sugar like in a sour lambic. the palate is smooth, but near being what is cloy, but this is watery. this brew is sweet, sugary, but plain. yes, as MullMan notes, there is "faint bubblegum." but this is nothing extra, this is nothing special, nor bitter. what’s up, hobgoblin? this is good, but where you at?
