Served on-draught into improper glassware at a bar in St. Paul, Minnesota. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were high as I enjoy the regular Duvel.

A: Pours a two finger head of bad thickness, no cream, and bad retention. Colour is a semitransparent yellow.

Sm: Light cream, full barley, a handful of hops, and a light grainy wheat touch.

T: Slightly creamy, with a fairly full barley foundation. No alcohol comes through. Fairly complex. The crisp barley is pleasant. Balanced and well built. On draught, it has depth. I imagine this is best bottle-conditioned.

Mf: Slightly coarse but wet. Moderately suitable for the flavour and style.

Dr: It's a touch straw-laden for my tastes. Very drinkable for the ABV, but it's just nothing special.

On tap

Pours a hazy golden hue with a frothy white head. Earthy hops with some banana bread and clove on the nose._

Taste is slightly similar with a spicy phenolic presence up front. Subtle Belgian yeast flavors delivered in a clean,  crisp and smooth fashion. Some bubble gum after taste. Hop presence provides a nice and smooth balance.

A bit hoppy for a Belgian which is nice

A good introduction to Belgian styles for someone not so familiar
