3.78/5 rDev -11.3%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
It was like finding the Holy Grail when I finally saw this available. (Note that I couldn't find a real Duvel Glass for this so you may have to void certain things I saw like the nose)
Appearance: WOW! HEAD GALORE! Tons of effervencense comes up through a beautiful hazy straw color.
Smell: I smell grain, there's probably something else there but that's all i'm picking up.
Taste: It tasted like sourdough bread almost.
Mouthfeel: Best creamy head ever. The beer itself is actually kinda thick and smooth. I get a little tiny bit of a grainy bite but not much.
Drinkability: I could easily drink 4 of these and be retarded but I would feel retarded because why would I spend that kind of money unless I bought it outside of a bar. I would hope that I would be able to appreciate it well enough after 2. Further I'd probably cherish this too much to drink it more once a month.

A - Pours a thick fluffy head with good retention and nice lacing. Color is vary light yellow, slightly hazy but very little. Heavy carbonation.
S - Floral, sweet, boozy, citrus notes, grassy notes. It's all there. A lot of smell here and a lot of different things going on. The main notes are the boozy, sweet, and grassy notes.... I think. Hard to pick just a few notes out.
T - Light, crisp, and very well balanced. I was a little worried by the smell that this would be too sweet for me, but the sweet boozy smell does not overpower the flavor at all. While still detectable, this beer is very smooth and drinkable. The grassy and citrus flavors come through the most, in an excellent balance.
M - Light and crisp, very good. The high carbonation works well here.
O - This is an excellent beer and easy to see why it is the standard for the style. While not something I usually go for, I was pleasantly surprised with this one. I was worried from the first sniff that I wouldn't like this, I thought it would be too sweet and boozy for me, but it definitely is not. Very well balanced and smooth. This is a beer that is good because there is not that big punch of flavor, just a very well crafted and balanced beer. Well worth the try and the hype.
