4.25/5  rDev +1.4%

A: Deep gold and cloudy with yeast and a slight green tinge, 3 fingers of off white head, chunky lacing typical to Duvel, some fine bubbles rising within.

S: Complex floral, aromatic perfume, light fruitiness like a tripel, particularly lemon peel and cantelope, citrusy, peppery.

T: Complex and great. At first I think tripel with the lemon peel, lemonade and cantelope fruitiness, then I get light sweetness, then it finishes off dry so typical of the original Duvel. A Belgian tripel and a Duvel together in a glass. Very citrusy as well. Really does feel green and dry. Alcohol of 9% is well hidden. Light bitter finish.

M: Medium body, slight syrup then extreme desert dry finish, medium carbonation with small and soda like bubbles.

O: Awesome great beer reportedly brewed only once, so I’m glad to have tasted it. Saw it in Brussels airport but never managed to get one with all my limited space and time, but it was next on my list. So glad to have found it Feb 22 in the local Irish pub in Kunming while on a date with my daughter. Amazingly yesterday I saw it on a podcast, and wished for it, and probably prayed for it, and Father answered me so fast by allowing me to find one so close. Thanks Dad!

Best before 09/2015

A: Pours a slightly hazy gold. Very tall, very effervescent white head. Great head retention with a big island of foam. Very thin lacing.

S: Definitely sorachi ace in this one. Light aroma of lemongrass right off the bat. Light citrus, pears and some earthy, black pepper spice too. Sweet grains for the malt.

T: Lots of lemongrass up front. Spicy. Surprising hop strength especially since this is from 2013. A bit of light citrus in there too. Sweet grains in the middle. Light bitterness in the finish with more lemongrass and some earthy black pepper. Grainy black pepper lingers between sips with an oddly skunk-like (but not quite) flavor.

M: Medium bodied, smooth and dry.

O: Interesting variation of the duvel tripel hop. Sorachi ace is quite prevalent. Maybe a little too all-encompassing if I'm honest. I really enjoy Duvel and this is all sorachi ace. It's good, don't get me wrong. I was just expecting something a little different. Still nicely executed and I enjoyed it plenty.
