4.19/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A faintly clouded, golden colored liquid capped by a large, but fast dropping, white head. Drops like a rock, like a soda head with all its commensurate sound as well. Zero retention, zero lace.
Smell is malt, yeast, light fruits (apple, pear, grape), bready. Great balance.
Taste is malt, bread, light fruits, some yeast, a hint of hops, a mild alcohol bloom, some slight acidity. Balance is very good. A bit of woodiness creeps in way back in the aftertaste.
Warming, smooth, with a drying aspect. Slight bit of cleaning in the finish. Medium bodied maybe a touch more. Carbonation is a bit rough, almost fizzy, but that's a minor quibble. A fine brew but the Nocturum is better.

4.25/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Light amber. Darker than Duvel and similar in colour to a Czech pils. Haziness made carbonation difficult to see

Smell is of onions, pear drops and candy. To me this, smells very similar to Duvel.

Taste is of malt, sugar, pear, apple with a touch of booze and a warm finish. It is a bit like an "imperial pilsner" beer as it has the same refreshing drinkability of a lager but with more alcohol warmth and more flavours going on. Bit of booze on the finish.

Mouthfeel is fizzy and palate cleanisng.

Overall I found this to be similar to a Duvel with perhaps a touch more caramel sweetness. A very good BSPA.

My mark out of one hundred would be 93.
