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.

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.
