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.

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.
