Pours a cloudy yellow color with a nice white head. Smell is sweet and malty with a definite belgian yeasty quality. Dusty, with a hint of tartness and very faint funk but is mostly sweet and a bit fizzy. Decent, and a nice take on Duvel as I understand it, but not one of my favorites as it is a bit sweet for my liking.
Pours an amber/orange color with a thin white, creamy and frothy head. The beer has the aroma of citrus, sweet malt, and a lot of yeast with a bit of a fizzy-like carbonation.
It has a medium body with a somewhat syrupy/oily - more on the oily side texture with light carbonation on the palate.
The taste starts off moderately sweet and the finish a bit bitter with a little bit of alcohol. Good Belgium strong! definitely going to look for this one again in the future! illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Bottle at Ritual Tavern. My notes and memory are hazy, like the amber orange pour. Nice lemon and perfumy aroma. Flavor of citrus, honey, wheat malt, and spice. Nice amount of residual sweetness. beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2008
Pours a cloudy orangey blonde color with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of hops, honey and flowers. Good flavor of honey, flowers and hops, there’s some sweetness too and some bitterness in the end. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. thornecb (6152) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 29, 2008
Pours gold into a Trappist glass. White head with medium retention leaves no lacing as it recedes to hug rim. Candi and hop aromas. Crisp and well balanced with upfront caramel and a lasting resin finish.

Bottle courtesy Ibrew2or3. Pours a hazy golden with a one finger white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrus, yeast, and sweet malt. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a mild to moderate amount of bitterness and well hidden alcohol. Very good. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUL 27, 2008
750 ml bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a 3/4 finger thick white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is esters, yeast, and spice. Flavor is much of the same with some light malt sweetness in there. Palate seems a tad thin and dry. Medium body. A nice beer. sebletitje (10477) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2008

750 bottle from Tops Tempe. Pours bright gold with a small white creamy head. Nice spicy, funky, Brett (?) nose. Taste is bitter, a bit alcoholic but not overbearing, tart, a bit tangy and medicinal. Orval-ish... I like this one. jason (1836) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2008
Bottle. Poured a clear golden body with nice head. Aroma is light spice and yeast. Flavor is light spices, citrus and a touch of earthiness. Finishes dry.
