4.5/5  rDev +7.1%

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 -14.3%

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.

Bottled November 2013.

A - Pours a bright gold color with a billowing, rocky, three fingered head and generous carbonation.

S - Nose is full of earthy spice, honey, bready yeast, some citrus, and pungent must.

T - Honey malt and boozy alcohol hits quite hard up front, after the initial palate attack the honey stays along with some spicy earthiness, pepper, and fruity/white grape character settles in midway through. Ends with a lingering earthy bitter bite and bone dry finish.

M - Gentle carbonation is borderline velvety, spit sucking bone dry finish, and a little bit of cotton-like feeling in the mouth, light medium body.

O - A good beer, a little thin in the body, and is it a hopped up Belgian Tripel as opposed to a Belgian IPA? Either way, it's an elegant beer and worth trying and IMO, it's more of a hopped up Tripel. Different. But it works if you enjoy both Belgian beers and lots of hops.
