4.19/5 rDev -0.5%
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/

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.

Pours pale gold with visible white head.
Straw, white pepper, peach and mango in the nose.
Crisp right off the bat. Very sharp bite from the noble hops. Alcohol comes through with a slight warming note. Delicious and an easy sipper. Saaz and styrian golding with a dose of mosaic dry hop. Simply amazing. More white pepper on the palate. Doesn't drink like 9.5%. Light bread throughout but simply delicious.

3.6/5 rDev -14.5%
Poured into the classic Duvel glass for review.
Appearance - a turbid yellow pour with cotton candy-like head.
Smell - ripe fruit, spice, a little pepper.
Taste - sweet honey followed by a touch of hoppy spice. The high(er) ABV% leaves you with a dry palate almost begging for another sip.
Mouthfeel - thin.
Drinkability - I wouldn't go out of my way for this one. It's Duvel, you're familiar with the brand/style, but "tripel hop" loses something in translation. I would have passed this up if I hadn't had a $2 off coupon.
