Poured out a buff copper, bronze golden hue into the old Duvel tulip. Thick, slightly off-white head that faded eventually. Strong lacing. A good-looking brew.
Pliny's nose is strong; lots of citrus up front with a good hint of orange rind and a toasted undertone. The hops, of course, also make their presence known. The hops dominate on the palate, too, but not at all in an off-balancing way. The citrus and malt sweep in to clean up the mid-palate and prevent the beer from being overwhelmed, but the bitterness hangs in there for a long, delicious finish.
Mouthfeel is excellent; just the right balance for the bitterness and the alcohol level. A very drinkable beer which deserves the respect that it gets.
