Well, this was a nice surprise. Ive tried a lot of different Belgians and while some proclaim to be hoppy, they all taste similar. This one delivers! The immediate aroma is of hops with a bit of that typical banana-like aroma in the background. Flavor is hop-like with some nice citrus in there as well. While you would not mistake this for an American IPA, it would satisfy hop-heads. A nice diversion not unlike the Schneider Weisse Hopfenweisse. Highly recommended!

very durable and beautiful foam. In aroma and in the taste a lot of the bitterness of the hops, little fruits such as peach or something else and a little spice. Alcohol is almost non-filled.

330ml bottle (Koht Birthday Auction 2016, Tallinn)
Dullish aroma, some hopping. Pale gold, small head. Harshish bitter hoppy taste, malts drowned by the hops. Lacking balance, too much emphasis on the hops, and the hops are a bit of a mess.

josanguapo (1369) - SPAIN - NOV 6, 2016
From Belgium in a Box. In Teku glass. Playing Magic Duels vs Lorenzo. More citrusy, refreshing and bit more watery than the normal Duvel. Im not sure if I prefer it over the normal one, but this is very good too. Very foamy, had to pour it in 2 steps.

Bottle @ home from Tripel Hops Tasting Box from Cash Flandre Artois, Auchy-les-Mines. Color: clear golden blond beer with high carbonation and medium white foam. Typical as a Duvel. Smell: grassy and hay domination. Alcohol boozy finish. Taste: medium body with good sweet malt backbone balanced with grassy hops. Dry boozy finish. Astringent alcohol. So strong... Not so fruity. Aftertaste: astringent alcohol. Boozy.
