4.38/5  rDev +4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

330ml bottle into a tulip.

Pours a nearly clear straw yellow with a fluffy two finger white head. Really great head retention and decent lacing.

The aroma on this is truely astounding. A wonderful blend of tropical citrus and Belgian yeasty goodness. Bread and a little biscuit along with a bit hit of fruit. It works very well.

The flavor just continues this wonderful balance. It is almost a perfect blend of malt and citrus. Lots of fruit and flowers up front that marries well with the yeast esters of banana and bubble gum. Bready malt follows this along with a moderate bitterness leading to an extremely dry finish.

Overall, an excellent beer from Duvel. This is scary how drinkable it is with no hint at all of alcohol. I could session this beer.

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.

3.34/5  rDev -20.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: beautiful hazy pale yellow with thick head and excellent carbonation.
Overall: strong hop presence which overrides the nice belgian yeast character. I like hops, but this is too much in a belgian ale for me. While still a solid beer, a little more balance would be nice.

Always open to trying a new beer from Duvel Moortgat.

Pours clear with a thin off-white head. Flavor is sweet. Minimal hop spices. More so as the aftereffect lingers in my mouth. There seems to be what seems vaguely similar to a pear flavor here; it's probably a different fruit that I am reminded of but can't remember the name of. Overall it is very crisp. Another nice brew from a brewery that I expect no less from.
