Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, Belgian yeast, flowers, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Hazy yellow/golden beer with a medium/large white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, Belgian yeast and flowers; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The Duvel, with its tons of sweet Belgian yeast, and the Sorachi Ace, with its dry and citrus flavour, work so great together. Actually manages to be a perfect balance between these two, which is great if you imagine how strong the yeast is in a regular Duvel.

Well, Duvel is one of my favorites so trying this was a no brainer. It definitely grew on me as I drank it. At first it seemed a little weak on malt but by the end it tasted fine. Now I need to get an original Duvel to compare it.

Bottled - Cloudy golden colour, large frothy white head, good retention, lacing. Citrussy hop nose with some lemon zest, lemongrass, freshly cut grass, dill, some bread, fruity esters. Medium body, lively carbonation, dry and pleasant hoppy finish. Well rounded hoppy belgian ale, very delicious.

Backlog. Bottle shared with JMD at HNB 11.05.13. Hazy golden. Large bright white HEAD. Aroma of lime and lemonade soda. Taste is first of lemonade and citrus seeds, then like and grapefruit. Bitterness, lime and lemon bonbonbs linger on. Fizzy carbonation. Somewhat unbalanced.

ForlornHope (504) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2015
33 cl bottle at home: turned into a back-to-back tasting with the 2012. Pours the same as most Duvels, so no surprises. Again, an older sample, so perhaps the aroma has faded. However, this example has a much lighter and less sticky base, the hopping is more perfumed and I would say is lighter, leaner and more refreshing than the 2012. Not better, just different. A nice, enjoyable beer.

Bottle in Brussels. Nice golden body. Great nose of hops and spices. Taste of lots of hops, strong Sorachi notes. Crisp and enjoyable.
