330ml bottle (Koht Birthday Auction 2016, Tallinn)suurjuust (3538) - ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2016
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.
330ml bottle shared by Phil, thanks! Clear yellow pour, medium white head. Nose is hops, fruity notes, lemons, peach. Flavor is lemons, some malt sweetness, floral perfume. Finish is slightly sweet and lemony, some alcohol warmth. Marduk (7694) - Reval, ESTONIA - DEC 17, 2016

Bue en bouteille de 33cl. Belle amertume. Alcool présent, corpulente. Levure sur la fin. Pas ma préférée des 6.

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. kerenmk (4753) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 29, 2016

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. Stuu666 (13425) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2016
