3.34/5 rDev -20.3%
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.

33cl bottle (12 2015) into a tulip. Pale golden color with some haze. Four finger white head with good retention and lacing. Hoppy aroma with grass, lemon and a hint of apple. Crisp and sweet first taste that is followed by a bitter and dry aftertaste with hoppy grass, lemon, spice and grapefruit that lasts for some time. Light to medium body and high carbonation. Some warming on the tongue but the alcohol doesn't taste through. Very drinkable and left me wanting another one.

330 ml bottle into signature tulip glass, best before 12/2015. Pours light hazy bright gold color with a 2 finger foamy and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, clove, pepper, floral, grass, herbal, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity and balance of hop, fruity/spicy yeast, and malt notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, white grape, apple, pepper, clove, herbal, floral, grass, cracker, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, white grape, pepper, clove, floral, grass, bread, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of hop, fruity/spicy yeast, and malt flavors; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent Belgian IPA. All around great complexity and balance of hop, fruity/spicy yeast, and malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
