look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Duvel tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep and hazy amber orange with a lot of bubbles. Big two finger off white head which slowly fades into a creamy layer. Leaves a lot of lacing.

Smell: A very fruity and fairly sweet Belgian style wheat forward aroma with lots of fruit esters. Belgian yeast along with hints of clove, coriander, funk, and pepper. Hints of bubblegum and candied sugar. Lots of fruit esters with hints of Pinot noir grape juice, orange peel, banana, lemon, apple, and mango. Hints of oak come through from the barrel. Bready malt with hints of wheat, caramel, grains, and straw. A very good and complex aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a juicy, yeasty, and sweet Belgian style taste with big notes of grape and other fruits. Belgian yeast with some notes of coriander, clove, pepper, and funk. Sweet presence of candied sugar and some notes of bubblegum. Big wine like taste from the Pinot noir grapes. Other fruit esters include notes of banana, orange peel, apple, mango, and lemon. Also some barrel notes of oak and vanilla. Bready background with notes of wheat, grains, caramel, and straw. A very good fruity taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a medium to high level of carbonation. Juicy, creamy, and fairly chewy with a drying finish. Alcohol heat is mild.

Overall: A very good twist on a Belgian style wheat beer. Huge fruit taste from the added grapes and a nice hint of oak. Its almost like an imperial Hefeweizen with the big bubblegum taste.
