It has been awhile since I had this beer. Traditionally in 750mL bottles, this new 11 oz bottle is so much more practical.

Pours a hazy yellow, with a two finger head (on a gentle pour) into a Duvel glass.

Aroma yields tons of lemon and a nice spicy yeast.

Taste is absolutely fantastic! Super clean and crisp. It tastes like a spicier version of Duvel. This beer has ample carbonation (something I am a fan of). Definitely get the lemon, yeast, and slight pepperiness. I also get a mild hop presence, but this beer is by no means bitter.

While this beer in not mind-blowingly spicy, it is so well-balanced. Again, it is akin to Duvel. I highly recommend the new 11 oz bottles. I would definitely buy the beer again. I would pair this with almost anything. I could see this paired with something fancy like steak, foie gras, and lobster to something relaxed like pizza or burgers! It gets a solid 95.5/100

Admittedly a newcomer to the great world of beer, but this is by and far the best I've ever tried. I'm one for fruity tastes, and this has the best I've ever tasted. Easy going down, and leaves a nice taste in your mouth.
