4.75/5  rDev +12.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle, poured into a Duvel glass (of course!). On popping the cork out, a wonderful citrus-floral aroma wafted out. It pours a bright clear gold color, with an initial half-inch thick head of foam, though it settles down after a moment to an airy foamy covering atop the beer (not nearly a nice a pour as the normal Duvel--in fact, a chalice glass might be better for this particular beer). The nose is strikingly hoppy, giving a very tangerine-citrus aroma with spicy floral hints underneath.

The taste is very heady--whereas I thought I could be smelling a typical American IPA from the nose, the taste is clearly Belgian, with a well-balanced mix of bitter earthy hops, highly fruity esters, sweetness from the malt (as per duvel the original, the body is surprisingly light for the high strength), and some very interesting yeasty spiciness (does this contain a little Brett? I swear I can detect some around the edges). Not a hint of alcohol harshness to be detected, but it's certainly warming after a moment.

The brewers at Duvel certainly get the mouthfeel near-perfect as well, just like with ordinary Duvel. It's very well-carbonated, with a delightfully light body for a 9.5% strength.

Probably the best beer I've had this year. I hope this is to be a regular offering and not a one-time special.

4.19/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a stubby 11.2 oz bottle into my Chimay goblet. Features a big delicately bubbly white head that actually looks like thick froth because of the carbonation and excellent head retention. Has some frothy streaks of lacing on the glass. A good looking beer.

VEry good aroma as well, Kind of like a Belgian Strong Pale Ale with hops added. Starts of fwith some pale fruit...apples and pears, then the Mosaic hops kick in and the bitterness and tangerine/citrus aromas take over.

Taste is more of the same, starts out like a Belgian Strong Pale Ale with the yeast and light fruit, then the Mosaic hos.citrus flavor kick s in. The overall flavors appear light on the tongue with little to no alcohol bite.

Mouthfeel is light and smooth. No noticeable alcohol presents, Nice level of carbonation.

This is an outstanding brew. The addition of heavy duty hops in no way diminishes the "Belgian" characteristics of the beer. Very nicely done/

4.5/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Color- clear light gold. Huge head with annoying meringue thickness.

Aroma- sharp hoppiness with evergreen notes.

Taste- Starts mild with Belgian spiced grape notes then turns dry and hoppy with a lingering clean hoppy finish. This is a Belgian for hop heads!

Poured from a corked 750 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted Jan. 2013.
