4.33/5  rDev +8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

poured into Duvel Tulip

A: Hazy orange in color with a thick rocky head. Head lingers for almost half the beer before dissipating to a thin layer of bubbles.

S: A lot of fruit and yeast. Picking out aromas of pineapple, mango and papaya. Also getting a little citrus as well.

T: Slight yeast at the beginning then fading to reveal some of the fruit mentioned above and citrus. Bitterness is low but doesn't go unnoticed. Finish is smooth with no lingering bitterness.

M: Medium body with good carbonation.

D: Very drinkable, one of my absolute favorite BPA's to date. (I'm still learning more about the style and will be trying many more) Highly recommended to those that may hesitate to drink Belgian beers or are looking for a way to dip their feet into the fray.

3.88/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Tasted July 25th 2011 (from notes)

Poured into a la Chouffe tulip

A - golden/brass, two finger off white creamy and some lacing

S - tons of sweet yeast, flowers, a bit sour, nice wheat and tons of fresh fruit

T - exactly the same, not even kidding. The smell was the taste and the taste was the smell. I don't believe I have run into this to many times.

M- Medium plus body, simple balance, simple complexity, medium minus acidity and a lovely easy to drink finish

D/O- Very well rounded, easy to drink, thirst quenching, hell of a beer!

Final thoughts - Easy to drink 6.2% abv, lovely and refreshing
