3.99/5  rDev -5.2%

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.

eyes...
frothy foam monster, 4 fingers of crystal white head, medium sizzle, very cloudy pale straw color, pretty sticky up the glass, the head really takes some time to calm down, a good amount of carbonation is running up through the glass, on point for the style (as you would expect from duvel)

nose...
nice doughy sweet bready aroma with hops on the back end, some banana notes, the hops feel like the more musty/dirty/earthy type which is a nice background for the sweeter honey notes to play off of, nice balance here considering the aroma is quite strong

taste etc...
medium feel carried by the carbonation which adds just a prickly wrinkle right before the bitters in the aftertaste, first blast is minor bittering that melds into banana flavors and bready tones that then melts away into mild bitterness in the corners of your mouth, this is very easy to drink and there is just a hint of warming in the stomach from the ABV, the hops really give this beer amazing depth and character

verdict?
fantastic, for someone who is put off by uber sugary tripels this really hits the mark, there is some sugar there but man the hops balance this out superbly, I expected this to be good as Duvel has been great forever but this far exceeded my expectations
