foyle (422) - Wyoming, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Poured from 12 oz bottle into tulip glass.
Appearance: pours a thick 2+" white head that drops slowly with a great deal of lacing. Color is light orange with lots of sediment in suspension and tons of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: sweet, yeasty bread, coriander, floral
Mouthfeel: medium body, prickly carbonation followed by astringency on the tongue and throat.
Flavor: sweet bread, banana, coriander, cinnamon, a bit of raisin, a definite lingering bitterness as the hops move from an initial floral to a finish of citrus rind.
Overall: well done, with an interesting balance between the sweet, spicy and bitter flavors Mmgkelly (1) - - JUL 18, 2015 does not count
One of my favorites from Funkwerks. Deliciously dry and crisp. A delightful example of the style. Brewed in the same style as Duvel and it shows! funkyfrank (1) - - JUL 14, 2015 does not count
Golden in color. Aromas of pineapple and pear. Delicious Belgian esters, without being too malty and sweet. Great Belgian-Style Golden ale! Deceitfully powerful ;) BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 9, 2015
Bottle shared at Butler’s with Chris and Craig. Thanks so much, Craig. Pours a light yellow. Aroma is yeasty, some bubblegum. Some malt. Flavor follows, but falls flat a bit. Mild carbonation. Good beer. bubbleflubber (2228) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Pours cloudy straw-golden into the glass, almost reminiscent of grapefruit juice, with a stiff fizzy head that dissipates to ring lacing. The nose is of yeasty esters, light sourdough, some barnyard and dank basement aromas, alongside a hint of ripe melon. Flavors of lemon, melon, light doughy notes, crackers and a hint of pepper finish with a combination of well-balanced tartness and lemon-pepper spice. The mouthfeel is almost like a carbonated juice, which helps the complexity and substance achieve an easy quaff to the palate. It hides the ABV superbly, which lends perfectly to its name, ’Deceit’, as this is easy-drinking, but doesn’t feel nearly as heavy as the ABV may suggest. Great for any time of day, as an afternoon sipper, an aperitif or nightcap. Really nice, in my opinion. Great brew!

Aroma is spices, pale malts and hints of earth and white bread. The flavor is spices, citrus, pale malts and a mix of alcohol and slight liquor in the finish. rumproasts (5422) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle. Hazy yellow with one finger head. Lightly sweet and fruity, quite a bit of yeast. Light booze. swesson (461) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2015
From a bomber. Pours a bright golden hue just as expected for a Belgian of this genre. Makes a frothy white head with millions of micro bubbles that slowly dissipate over a few minutes. A bit of lacing but not much. Aroma is of lemon and pear and a touch of vanilla. As with most Belgians this one is quite effervescent. Tastes of malt and citrus and is deceptively high in ABV so savor slowly.
