4.4/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours clear at first, some yeast at the end. Colors is light gold, almost yellow. A huge frothy head almost overcame my tulip, and left behind fluffy lacing. There was still plenty of froth in the bottom of the glass after I finished.

Smell is Belgian yeast, fruity, clean and fresh with a hint of spice and zest.

Taste is wow, lightly peppery. Citrusy and yeasty, all flavors balanced and hitting the right notes.

Feels nicely carbonated, zesty, lemony tangy. An almost light body hides the 8.5% extremely well, as this is fun and easy to drink.

What a classic taste, and a classic beer. A must have. Though I have had it before, it's the first time in years, and I appreciate it more now then I did then.

DOA

4.95/5  rDev +16.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

330ml bottle poured into Duvel glass. Pours a bright golden honeyburst color with a tall fluffy white head that has very good retention and leaves a lot of lacing as it dissipates.

Smell is of Belgian yeast, sweet malt, and light and citrusy fruits.

Taste is of sweet malt and bitter hops up front, picking up the light fruits and citrus from there along with herbal spicyness and the 8.5% alcohol comes in to say hello. Finish is clean and dry. Mouthfeel is smooth, nicely carbonated, and almost creamy.

Overall, one of the best beers on the planet. Refreshing, crisp, flavor packed, and easy drinking, even at 8.5%.
