Served on draft at Free House Pub in Middleton, Wisconsin in a pint glass on 7/19/2013 as we sit in the outdoor patio.
Aroma: Smells like apricots, but faint, with a more dominant spicy phenols from the yeast. There is a bit of a malty caramel sweetness as well. Smells good and aromatic.
Colour: Pours a pale orange body with probably a half cm white head that slowly dissipates, completely by the time I get halfway through the glass. Lacing is very nice, spotty but definitely leaves a nice lacing as I get through the glass. Looks refreshing.
Flavour: Follows the nose. A bit of apricot and caramel sweetness complements each other along with the spicy phenols. Not particularly bitter, but there is a little bit of a citrus bite at the end. Not particuarly intense, but everything complements each other very well.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, refreshing and very drinkable. No indication of alcohol heat. Aftertaste is mostly everything that comes out- the citrus, apricot, and spicy yeast all blended together.
Overall: Tasty, not overwhelming, but not underwhelming either. Shows off the Belgian yeast characteristics well, while complementing it with a good fruity hoppiness that doesn't overwhelm the spices. It definitely hit the spot on a hot summer evening on the patio.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured from a bottle into tulip
A - Pours a wonderful orange color with about 1 finger of white head that fades rather quickly.
S - The citra hop really shines here. Pineapple, mango, apple, orange peel. Bubblegum and traditional Belgian yeast come through very apparently as well. Quite a treat to the nose.
T - Somewhat similar to the nose. Green apple, bubblegum, pineapple, pear, other light fruits and Belgian yeast come through. Bitterness is up there. I'd imagine IBUs in the 90s or so. Very balanced and easy drinking. No alcohol or heat. My new favorite Belgian IPA!
O - This beer blew me away for the style. The only other Belgian IPA I've had that comes close is Lagunitas Little Sumpin Wild, but I haven't had Duvel yet. If you live in Wisconsin, don't hesitate upon purchasing a sixer of this stuff. Easy drinking and flavorful: everything you would want in a Belgian IPA.
