3.38/5 rDev -11.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bottle to Duvel tulip the beer pours a grainy golden yellow color with a small 1/2 finger white head, some retention and some lacing. The aroma is light with a sweet malt character, a hint of earthy hops, and a light clover banana, not as detectable as I would have liked. The flavor starts with an earthy hop character upfront together with a mild bitterness, the higher abv and heat is prevelant pretty quickly but isn't much of a distraction as it mellows in the middle as the sweet malt balances everything out. Finishes with a gentle sweetness and mild bitterness on the tongue. Some carbonation and lighter bodied considering the big nature of the beer. Overall, not a bad beer but not exceptional. I will likely not be back any time soon.

4.06/5 rDev +6.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.
APPEARANCE: pours a clear straw color with slightly higher amount of carbonation, two finger head that dissipated quickly and left a thin layer of bubbles that lasted throughout, there was some lacing present.
SMELL: molasses, pears, banana and the Coriander spice really dominates with some Belgian funk.
TASTE: the taste follows the nose, it's initially sweet molasses with some spice and funky Belgian bread then some lingering hops, the alcohol 7.8% is perceptible but well disguised.
PALATE: full bodied with higher carbonation.
OVERALL: this is a very good beer and reasonably priced, it's not the best I've had for the style but for the price I would not hesitate to buy again.
