3.78/5 rDev -8.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a tulip.
A: Carbonation!!! When I pour, waves of it fill the glass. The body is clear and yellow, with the slightest orange tint. There's a big amount of rocky, white head that dissipates slowly. Carbonation rises all through the glass and provides an audible experience as well. Yay fourth sense!
S: The short and simple thing to say is bready yeasts and citrus and orange notes. But I really love it. Lighter beers like tripels and saisons have always been my favorites, but I've been having a lot of darker beers lately. This aroma is strong, refreshing and crisp. There's a grassy/piny undercurrent here, a smooth malt runs through it and I detect grapefruit and maybe even some grapes.
T: Follows the aroma, though the grass and yeast overly dominate the citrus aspects of the beer. It dulls the beer down a little bit.
M: Carbonation!! A thin body with lots of carbonation to fill your mouth. Very appropriate but maybe a little too much on the bubbles.
D: Strong flavors and strong carbonation. It only works well if the beer is made exquisitely and this beer unfortunately has some problems. It's still a very good and refreshing drink that I like more than my rating indicates, but the strong but dull flavor, along with the aggressive carbonation make this beer kind of a chore to drink.

4.25/5 rDev +3.2%

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.
