The colour is yellow, the liquid clear.. The three finger white compact head sinks slowly to a thick lid leaving some lacing.
The smell is bitter and hoppy. Some citric fruits like lime and bitter oranges. Some tart/sour notes. Spicy yeast flavours and notable alcohol. Unripe fruits (apples, plums) and herbs.
The taste is very bitter, dry and fruity. Lime juice, green bananas, mixed exotic spices and herbs. Light to medium body. The aftertaste got a slowly growing clean sweetness, alcohol and notes of green bananas and malic acid. The finish is smooth and sweet, reminding of lemonade.
The carbonation is medium strong; a bit lighter than expected; the large bubbles are sharp. The liquid is quite dry and light.
A bit of a one trick pony.

Best by 7/2016.
Pours a murky light gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, Belgian yeast, citrus zest, earth, and slight berry aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, Belgian yeast, citrus fruit, citrus zest, and berry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop and yeast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a higher level of carbonation with a crisp and prickly mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with noticeable berry like qualities in the smell and taste from the Mosaic hops.
Serving type: bottle.

Aroma is hugely citrusy but of the lemon variety. I have to imagine they used more than just Mosaic to dry hop this as I believe I am getting prominent Saaz and Styrian Golding notes as well. Drinks fairly bitter with plenty of lemon flavored undertones. Sweet up front and a decent sized body. Gives it enough to accent the hoppiness here. Not a bit of off-putting booze. This is really damn good in my opinion and something I could drink a lot of. Well done Duvel.
