3.6/5 rDev -6.3%
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.

3.63/5 rDev -5.5%
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.

4.66/5 rDev +21.4%
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
