4.05/5  rDev -4.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A - Poured into the Duvel Tulip, this is a golden pour with a cloying white foam. Foam retention is nice, and has a cloudy look.

S - Scent of citrus fruit, and belgian yeast. A bit of spice is also present.

T - Initial tartness has elements of spice and lemon. The belgian yeast gives this a tangy taste. The finish seemed to be sweeter and tasted like sugary fruit.

M - Very easy drinker and perfect to sit back and enjoy. Feels light for the style and ABV. Slight carbonation, but overall a very smooth belgian ale.

O - An iconic belgian pale. I'm finding I like other a bit more, but this is the poster-child for the style.

Serving type: on-tap

4.5/5  rDev +5.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours with a huge rocky head. Straw colour. Cloudy. Aroma is of pears with a hint of onion. The taste has notes of candy sugar, pear,, banana, slightly funky yeast and some spice in the aftertaste. A rather complex and enjoyable taste that seems to change with each sip and evolve as the beer warms. This beer has champagne like carbonation. This Belgian strong pale ale is very easy drinking yet complex. A refined and delightful beer that is easily available.

My mark out of 100 would 93.
