Into Duvel Tulip. 2011 edition. May adjust when I try the 07 that I have in my cellar.
Pours dark mahogany with three to four fingers white head.
Mellow citrus. Sort of like Tremens, but more mellow.
Spicier than Tremens, stronger flavor, richer and fuller bodied. Nice lacing. Less sweet.
Crisper and heavier. Decent. Still prefer Tremens.
Edit* Decided to pop my Noel from 07, bought at Bottleworks earlier this year. Impressive pop from the cork when opening.
Color is roughly the same, but there was almost no head. Combination of age and a much gentler pour, I would imagine.
Aroma on this one is much stronger.
Much more fruity character comes out.
Solid carbonation still left on this one. More more focus on red fruits, but still plenty of the spicy profile. Mellowing it out does good to this.
