Bottle: Poured a hazy blonde beer with a huge foamy white head with good retention. Aroma is quite floral with some nice mix of malt and hops. Taste is very refreshing with again notes of malts and hops and some sweet floral notes. Body is bit thicker then expected with a great balance between hops and yeast. ABV is well hidden which is great for blonde beer with 7.5% ABV.

Pours a slightly hazy honey colour with a big white head. Settles very slowly and leaves a nice lacing.

Bready, yeasty, citrussy grapefruit hints are present in the aroma. Finishes with a lingering sour yeasty hint.

Taste is of honey, yeast, grapefruit, bananas, and pineapples, accompanied by peppery and slightly warming finish.

Nice mouthfeel, drinks real well. A fantastic beer

Wonderful to sip. Light on the mouth with spicey lemon yeast. Lace that stays in the cup, many small bubbles from good carbonation. Really 7.5%? Malty and refreshing. Bit of dry bitter afterataste from hops. Floral yeasty aroma. A bottle is satisfying for two.

Yellow cloudy transparent color, with a creamy head that never disappears totally. Highly carbonation, crazy bubbling all around.

A nice smell of yeast and fruits. The taste is fruity and yeasty at first. Nice, well-balanced, very enjoyable. Then, some spicy honey flavor or something I couldn't define (flowers??) prepares the transition to the thick and almost chewy hoppy aftertaste. The mouthfeel varies greatly: thin and refreshing at first, it gets more complex on the end. All the ingredients are well balanced, none of the tastes is overwhelming. Very nice beer.

11.2 oz bottle. Golden and a bit cloudy, supports a puffy head and leaves alot of lace. yeast, spice, candi sugar in the nose. Taste is crisp, refreshing, fruity, yeasty,lemon,honey, butter, cloves, melon, crisp apples. This one is delicate and complex, heaven in a glass. I love everything about this stuff, from the very heavy, "Duvel" shaped bottle, to the smell, color, taste and finish of this noble Belgian creation. Check it out!

This looks like fossil amber in a glass, topped with white head that is pretty thin for a Belgian. The aroma is a tart fruit with a touch of grain. The first sip brings a mild malt flavor that feels very smooth, but not syrupy. Throughout, the flavor is mostly this mild maltiness with a touch of musty yeast spice. It dries only slightly in the finish with a tart spiciness that seems to be a combination of the yeast character and a subtle hop.

This is a surprisingly quaffable abbey ale with its smooth mouthfeel and humble, but interesting, yeast spice.

light yellow body with extremely active micro-carbonation fine pure white head.

Extremely sweet and fruity muscat grape aroma.

light pale malt flavor cloaked by sweetness. the 7.5% alcohol is cloaked by the sweetness. This is a lot like duvel only with a great depth of maltiness that duvel does not have.

this goes down in a flash.

I can't pronounce the name of this beer, but I sure enjoyed drinking it. Hazy golden appearance with a large white head and substantial carbonation. Vanilla aroma with a honey-like sweetness in the taste, maybe even a little biscuit taste. A bit of oak in the finish as well that lingers on the tongue.

Brought this one back from Beer Mania in Brussels.

Pours a cloudy gold with a 2 inch pillowy white head, that is actually too persistent. The head is so large, and takes so long to settle that I became very impatient waiting to have a taste! Aroma of honey, pears, horse blanket and an earthy herbal note. Flavor begins slightly sweet, with malt and honey, becoming yeasty and musty. Has a low acidity and a nice herbal bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Very well balanced. Body is medium with light carbonation. Very smooth and creamy. This is an excellent beer that I recommend highly.

Cloudy, hazy deep yellow, nearly orange...very bubbly thick white head. The initial aroma smelled like bad beer, reminded me of my grandfather and his Meister Brau...this was only temporary, and the fruity aroma of banana, cloves, and yeast came out.

Has some very nice fruit flavors with a mild touch of hops and carbonation. Nero talks about a touch of vanilla, and as usual he's right on. It's very subtle, but it only adds to the complexity of this delicious brew.

A hazy yellow-orange body is topped by a foamy bright white head that drops fairly quickly and detracts from the appearance. It does hold a decent collar and surface covering, however, and also leaves some lace. The aroma is sweetly malty, lightly spicy, fruity and yeasty. The body is medium with a very fine, moderate carbonation that leaves it quite creamy in the mouth. The flavor is surprisingly soft, starting with a honeyish malt that also has a woody/oak and vanilla character to it. Some very light spice rounds it out nicely, and a drying bitterness ushers in the finish. Very well balanced with a rich sweet malt and a decent amount of hops! Very nice and well recommended.
