A: Yellow with a greenish tinge, moderately cloudy with a moderate amount of large and small bubbles. Topped with eggshell white head that is candy glass and foamy in appearance. It fades relatively fast. Candy glass lacing as well.

S: Glue, pineapple, Belgian yeasts, yellow candy lollipop, dry hay of Saaz coming through. Floral like perfume, fruity as well. Light tropical fruit like pineapple, slight canned fruit, papaya, mango.

T: Glue, pineapple, Belgian yeasts, a huge dry hay hop base comes through in between the muted tropical fruitiness of lemon, lemon zest, papaya and pineapple. Light sweetness, big dry hop tannic character on the finish.

M: Thick, moderate carbonation, big tannic dry hop finish.

O: Excellent brew. Drank December 3rd, 2012. The label said drink within 3 years, so still acceptable but on the limits of expiration. I’ve had 2013 and I think 2014’s version as well. It feels like the citrus hops have fallen off, leaving a sort of glue like flavor. The rest is excellent. This sort of brew should be drunk fresh. Still, was excited to have found this one still around in almost 2015!

Hazy golden colour, nice big dense head (but not as big as a regularDuvel)
Smells of lemon, hints of hop
Nicely balanced between citrus and hoppy bitterness, crisp and refreshing
Thin to medium body, medium carbonation.
Overall really nice crisp beer, with some complexity, citra not overdone
