3.79/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 11.2 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. Moderate hand. Dated 04-04-13, not sure if that's the born-on or the best-by...

A: Hazy, golden orange-yellow. 2 fingers of off-white head with ok retention. Light lacing.

S: Fruity Belgian yeast with notable apple, pear. Spice, clove. Light bread, grass. A bit of musty funk and sugar intermittently.

T: Round, fruity semi-sweetness yields to a solid European hop character. Fairly dry finish. No significant alcohol. Some grass and grain from the pale malts.

M: Moderate to high carbonation with a good smoothness. Moderate body. Great vehicle.

O: Good drinking beer, if not terribly memorable. No major complaints and pretty widely available.

Prost!

Excellent looking beer initially, great head that rises but then the debris floating in the beer can be disconcerting. Smell is good but mild. Taste is great, really smooth and easily drinkable. I rolled through the glass in no time. Excellent beer that I will be re-visiting often.
