look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
750mL bottle poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Batch stamp on bottle was 3141. No other date.
Appearance: Translucent/cloudy orange-copper color. Thick and persistent 1/8" thick dense off-white foam. Plenty of strands of lacing in strands noted. Good looking beer.
Smell: Fruity - with some definite tropical fruit smells in here (I noted papaya). Demerara sugar noted as well, along with a hint of orange citrus.
Taste: Wonderful blend of fruit and malt up front, some citrus in the middle, and some hop bitterness mixed in with a demerara sugar flavor at the end. Very tasty
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, spicy on the tongue, nice thickness underneath the carbonation. Just the barest hint of stickiness on the teeth.
Overall / Drinkability: A very rich, tasty, and well balanced beer here, full of Belgian goodness and many nice flavors. The alcohol is not notable at first, but it shows up in force later. While you should sip and savor it has that great pull of flavor that can lead one to drink it faster than you should. So while I know for me it should be one is enough....I am quite glad I had a big Duvel-sized glass of this when I split the bottle with the Mrs. A dangerously drinkable beer, but a very good one overall.

My 1st corked beer. :-)
A - Pours a big fluffy head but it doesn't stay except to leave laces down the side of the glass.
S - Lightly sweet sent
T - Light sour taste, faint spicy yet tart finish
M - A light carbonated bite
O - I like this beer would be better without the carbonated finish.
