poured 12oz bottle into Duvel tulip

A - Dirty, hazy apricot hue. I poured it so gently and slowly, still took 2 pours as the massive foamy head erupted above the top of my tulip. Head retention is lasting a very long time.

S - Belgian yeast, rotten banana and other fruits (not as bad as you think). Sugar and spice, with a bit of floral hops and wet hay.

T - Belgian yeast and spice up front. Wet hay and some ripe fruit (no banana). A bit of floral hop and sugar round it out. Interesting.

M - Heavy carbonation, light bodied. Finish is slightly dry.

O - I typically like this style, but this one left me scratching my head. It is an odd combination of wet hay, fruit, spice and hop. I'll stick with a more traditional style, but this was good to try.

Poured into a Great Divide tulip. Pours a cloudy medium golden amber with massive overproduction of foam; a careful pour was 80% foam and it took a long time to get enough in the glass for a taste; the massive head dissipated completely to a thin film, ring around the glass and pillowy lacing. Aroma of light bready malt, both Belgian and wild yeast, Belgian spicing and a hint of citrus. Flavor is very light bready malt with a strong dose of Bretty wild yeast and hints of apple and stone fruit juice. Finishes with lingering wild yeast and light hops. Light bodied. I'm not a huge fan of wild yeasts, but enjoy a touch of Brett or wild yeast to a sufficiently complex ale; this one did not support the level of wild yeast to my taste. It is light and overall pleasant, but too single note to hold my interest.

Slightly hazy apricot with a huge, rocky head. Head settles down but maintains a definite presence. Clean, crackery malts with brett all up in the nose. Flavor: pale malts, BRETT, heavy bitterness in the finish. This is awesome. Mouthfeel is very carbonated and feels so light for 7%. Overall holy shit this is less than 10 bucks for a 4 pack??? Lollin at these low reviews. Have these people never tasted brett? This is fucking awesome.

3.24/5  rDev -15.6%

Pours golden with a huge head that leaves plenty of lacing.

The smell is of bubblegum and cotton candy. A bit of citrus is underneath.

The taste is of sweet bubblegum and cotton candy. It does have a tart touch in the finish.

It is light to medium bodied. Fairly creamy. A bit of a late fizzy tingle to it as it goes down.

It has stereotypical "Belgian" characteristics with the bubblegum/cotton candy. It is not a Duvel. I thought it would be considered a Strong Belgian Pale because of the alcohol content and noticeable character. It is "okay", but missing a Saaz character to balance it.

3.8/5  rDev -1%

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a very large white head that fades very slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains Belgian yeast, spices, caramelized malts, some citrus and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of Belgian yeast and a hearty malt character. Then a strong spice flavor quickly follows along with some sweet flavors of caramel and fruit. The hops presence is decent for the style and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very good flavorful beer to drink for a long time
