Poured from champagne bottle into the Duvel glass.

Pours a beautiful light golden soft copper. Transparent. Retains an inch of white foam. Some small bubbles float.

Slight belgian yeast smell, some hop and some malt. Light malty taste, very smooth and flavorful. Really firm carbonation. Small residual hop.

Great beer, supremely drinkable.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 7/6/2014. Pours slightly cloudy golden amber color with a 2 finger foamy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of pear, apple, lemon, orange peel, banana, honey, bread, clove, pepper, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of fruity/spicy ester notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of pear, apple, lemon, orange peel, bread, honey, banana, clove, pepper, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of light fruits, citrus, bread, honey, clove, pepper, light banana, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast ester flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice Belgian blond ale. All around nice balance and complexity of fruity/spicy ester flavors with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. No complaints at all really; a very enjoyable offering.

750 ml bottle. Pours deep golden with thin white, long lasting head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of barnyard yeast, ripe pears and biscuit malt. Body is full and smooth. Taste is very spicy, fruity with biscuit malt and caramel in the background. Finish is long and spicy. Excellent brew.

Amber orange color with lots of head with good retention.
Aroma of malt, oranges, and banana yeast.
Nice zesty flavor of orange peel, brown sugar, spices and earthy and grassy hops. Dry aftertaste with its residual taste of condiments.
Light body with medium carbonation, and with an effervescent sensation. Alcohol is well hidden.
Decent beer, a bit less complex and flavorful compared to other top Belgian ales, but with a good balance between drinkability and flavor.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a caged & corked 750ml bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains light caramelized malts, Belgian yeast, honey, some citrus, some spice and a faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a strong breadiness from a hearty malt character and Belgian yeast. Then some mildly sweet flavors of caramel, honey and some spices come in. The hops presence is very mild and there is a touch of smokiness in the background but there doesn’t seem to be much balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Not very tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, good kick, decent representation of style, it’s a solid beer but there are better choices within the style.

4.43/5  rDev +21.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A: 1/2" white head that dissipated quickly over cloudy orangey-amber liquid.

S: Banana, caramel malt and yeast.

T: Slightly bitter and yeasty up front which gives way to the taste of pear and alcohol reminiscent of a Riesling white wine, mixed with the faint taste of caramel malt and herbs.

M: Thin viscosity with a medium level of fine carbonation.

O: Given the overall ratings on here, I expected a much worse beer than I experienced. Then again, I do enjoy the taste of malt. Given my palate, though, I found this to be very drinkable and enjoyable.
