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

Single finger frothy head with good lacing on a hazy straw colored body. Aroma of lemon custard, floral hops, candied sugar and wheats. Flavors of citrus, hint of yeast but the Belgian character is lacking, wheat, some grains and hint of corriander. Light body and moderate carbonation. Semi dry finish. Overall drinkable and flavorful just lacks Belgian character at least for what I want.

Serving type: on-tap

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. The beer is hazy gold color with bleached white minimal head after even a fairly aggressive pour.
Aroma is mild with bready yeast, some sweet malt and some spicy and earthy hops.
First sip reveals an average to light body with fine rolling carbonation.
Flavor is similar to the nose with some caramel malt and a little musty funk mixed in for fun.
The hops give the same earthy and spicy notes as he nose advertised, I dont get any booze which is nice since it is a bigger beer.

Very easy to drink and worth trying as it is interesting and fairly complex without being messy.

4.5/5  rDev +14.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: It pours a beautiful golden color with an amazing thick, creamy white head that lasts

Smell: Wonderful fruity smell with pear notes and some grassiness

Taste: Fruity, sweet, malty, less dry than the standard Duvel. Herbal grassy flavors as well

Mouthfeel: High carbonation, but with fine bubbles, medium body

Overall: Interesting take on a classic. Not quite as good, but still an amazing brew. Would love to pick up more, and maybe in the future have a side by side with the original Duvel.

A very nice beer indeed.
A golden color with a slight haze. A white smaller head lingers leaving spotted lacing.
The aroma is floral and grassy while the yeasty esters impart a fruity pear aroma.
Drinks dry and slightly bitter. The thing that I noticed most was that maybe it sat in some wine barrels because the driness reminds me of oak tannins while the yeast gives a fruity almost dry white wine taste.
It danced across my palate quite meekly but overall this was a fantastic beer. This will really throw those servers at Cape May BYO restaraunts for a loop, good forbid they open a corked beer.
