3.88/5  rDev -4.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Murky sunburnt lemondrop yellow, a foamy white head slowly calms to a frothy film. Random foamy lacing.

Aroma: Lots of bubblegum sweetness and yeast. Some banana and fruit sweetness.

Taste: Very much like the aroma, a banana and bubblegum backbone hold up most of the ale. A dry finish that has a bit of an alcoholic edge.

Mouthfeel: Medium to heavy, dry.

Overall: A bit too heavy for my liking but certainly flavorful in the true Belgian way.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Mainly yellow, with a touch of gold. Forms a large white head, and there are a lot of bubbles coming up from the bottom of my Duvel glass.

Heavy citrus scent from this, a bit like orange juice. I can also smell the Belgian yeast, those are the main smells I can detect.

Very Belgian in character. It has all the flavors I associate with Belgians, citrus, pepper, and that distinct flavor from the yeast. Has a bit of hop bitterness at the finish, and the alcohol is very well hidden.

Very smooth and solid, nicest feel I've had in some time.

Overall a really nice beer. I am a big fan of both breweries involved with this, and they did not disappoint. I can tell the influence of each brewery, and the combination works well. It does taste more like a triple to me, which is a good thing. Very much worth trying.

Wow, what a great beer. Everything about this I like. The taste us super. I am not into all the different ratings for each category. I know what I like and thus I like. Not too many things I don't like from this brewery. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.
