22 oz fancy bottle purchased by my girlfriend for one of our anniversaries. Poured into my Southern Tier tulip.

Sort of golden, creamy, yellow pour. Huge head, about 4-5 inches. Very sticky beer, clearly, as the lacing is incredible.

Smells herbal, yeasty, and slightly fruity.

A taste explosion. Belgian yeast gives it a fruity pear flavor, mixed with pineapple, clove, and grass. Very floral. A bit chalky at the end but it's not a problem.

Medium bodied, well carbonated.

Awesome variant on Duvel. Thanks Joelle!

Brilliant clarity highlights this pale yellow ale as a rock hard white head stands proudly on top.

Familiar Belgian esters greet the nose, fruity and spicy mixing with alcohol warmth and topped off with a bit of hop aroma. The scent is thick with Belgian personality.

Firm hop bitterness stand in front driving a path for the spicier of yeast esters to rampage through my palette. Bold, stiff yet with a hint of complexity coming from softer hop flavors and esters hinting at pear-like fruit. Finishes dry with hop flavors riding the residual bus out of town, chased out by the stiff bitterness.

Stiff, crisp with a dry finish. Hops up front but will still seem like an easy drinker to any experienced IPA fan. No hint of boozy heat but if you don't dig the Belgian character then turn away; Here, there be esters.

Poured from a bomber into a Duvel tulip- pours a clear, golden yellow color with two plus fingers of fluffy white head, great retention, not too much lacing.

Smell is very hoppy- piney and distinctly American along with some Belgian yeast earthiness. Beautiful hop smell for a Belgian.

Taste is great- hops up front briefly, then some nice light malt and candi sugar sweetness, which gives way to the earthy yeast. Finishes dry and the hops linger for a while.

Mouthfeel is great- light body, well carbonated. This one is great if you can find it for the right price. Worth trying. Would get again if not for the cost.

To put it simply it's Duvel with hops. It has the same exact characteristics of a regular Duvel but that added hops element. Poured from a 22oz. cage and cork purchase from Total Wines - Claymont, DE. Thought this was a rare score, but appears to be pretty prevalent.

Pours with an immense amount white lacing that continually building. On top of the head you could drop a dime and it wouldn't sink. Pours that notorious semi-lucid golden color similar to an american light beer.

There is that usual citrusy smell common in Duvel but also a presence of piney, grassy hops. I'm thinking chinook. My first sip was very palate pleasing, slightly sweet. If you let it linger in your mouth you feel the carbonation. Slight hint of bitterness and piney/hoppy taste but nowhere near dominating or overwhelming.

A benchmark that all Belgian IPAs should strive to be.

Poured from bottle into snifter...purchased at total wine in Norwalk, CT. Pours a golden color with 3 fingers of foamy white head. Great Belgian hop and banana aroma...not much diff than the regular duvel. Taste is awesome belgian pale ale some banana and spice but just like a slightly hopped version of duvel. Nice and dry...great amount of carbonation. Awesome brew...but not much diff than reg duvel.

A. It is a crystal clear gold color, there are a few bubbles the come up, but not much. It has an average white head that leaves some good lacing.

S. Very strong almost apple scent to it.

T. Very mild hop taste, but high in wheat, some apple sweetness, it's quite carbonated and has a mild maltiness. So alcohol comes through.

M. Rough and medium bodied.

O. It doesn't have a strong hop taste, it really tastes like more of a traditional Belgian. Very good, but not much of a hop taste.
