look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

330ml bottle served in a snifter glass.

A: Pours the traditional pale yellow and bit cloudy color forming a huge bubble, creamy and soapy white head. Infinite retention and lots of soapy lacings formed and left in the glass

S: Smell is just perfect. A bomb of flowery and citrus hops. It's really amazing how the can conserve such a hops freshness. I mean, this is a bottle of 2012 being consumed in 2014. I know that's not too much but, at same time, the hops freshness in the nose is really impressive. Strong notes of citrus and tropical fruits al well. To be mentioned; orange, grapefruit and passion fruit

T: Sweet pale malts in upfront, followed by strong notes of citrus and tropical fruits like orange, grapefruit and mainly, passion fruit. In overall, a standard Duvel, which is dry and crispy. However, this version is a bit bitterer than the regular version. Alcohol is very well hidden here

M: Medium to heavy body with good carbonation. Passion fruit aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. The best Duvel Tripel hop I've ever had (compared with the Amarillo and Sorachi Ace versions). Citra is a bit overwhelming? Yes, it is but in a lovely way... ;)
