Recieved as part of a trade with nas4atu... Thanks Eric!! Live review, bottle into Duvel Tulip

Appearance; pours a cloudy mahogany reddish brown color, with maybe a half finger of bubbly brown head, that dissipates exceptionally quickly leaving no lacing and a very thin film... 

Smell; has a bready quality, hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and spices... Definitely has the "Belgian Yeast" smell going as well... The best I can describe that is muted notes of raisins and other similar dark fruits...

Taste; has a definite bready backbone, hints of raisin, nutmeg, cinnamon... Plenty of other spices I can't discern, slight notes of caramel and brown sugar.

Mouthfeel; effervescent in the mouth, with a juicy finish, I'd put this on the lighter side of medium body...

Overall; my fondness for the Belgian style has unfortunately faded quite a bit since the start of my craft beer journey... This was a very enjoyable beer of a style that I don't spend time with.

Received in trade from mdaschaf, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a deep reddish brown color with a smallish off white head that dissipates all to quickly. Smells of brown sugar and sweet fruity malt mostly. Raisins and prunes with a fair amount of caramelized sugars and hints of spicy yeasty esters. Taste is sweet and fruity up front with dark caramelized sugars coming next. Yeasty funk finishes as well a a lingering burnt sugar sweetness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. Not bad for an American interpretation of a dubbel. I enjoyed this one.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

A- Reddish brown body with a light brown/tan head which quickly dissipates. Nice bead.

S-Sweet sugars and raisins and malt.

T-Tastes the way it smells. Not overly sweet with carbonation that is not too strong, but typical for a Belgian style.

M-Refreshing carbonation feel. Malty sweetness. No prevalent hops that I could detect. Nice sweet finish.

O-Not overly impressed but this does not mean it is a bad beer at all. I received this as a gift and I would like to try this again.

From a 12 ounce bottle, no freshness date. Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A: Pours a clear red/amber with very little tan head.

S: Light banana and cloves, Belgian yeast and spices on the nose. Very true to a real Belgian beer.

T: Flavor is really lacking, a bit off even. Slight sweetness of sugar and malts with a slight floral hops at the end. Taste doesn't really match the tongue.

M: Medium bodied with good amounts of fresh carbonation.

O: This hits some marks of a real Belgian, but falls short in comparison to real ones. It's easily available though with a good price.
