A hazy yellow-orange body is topped by a foamy bright white head that drops fairly quickly and detracts from the appearance. It does hold a decent collar and surface covering, however, and also leaves some lace. The aroma is sweetly malty, lightly spicy, fruity and yeasty. The body is medium with a very fine, moderate carbonation that leaves it quite creamy in the mouth. The flavor is surprisingly soft, starting with a honeyish malt that also has a woody/oak and vanilla character to it. Some very light spice rounds it out nicely, and a drying bitterness ushers in the finish. Very well balanced with a rich sweet malt and a decent amount of hops! Very nice and well recommended.

Brought this one back from Beer Mania in Brussels.

Pours a cloudy gold with a 2 inch pillowy white head, that is actually too persistent. The head is so large, and takes so long to settle that I became very impatient waiting to have a taste! Aroma of honey, pears, horse blanket and an earthy herbal note. Flavor begins slightly sweet, with malt and honey, becoming yeasty and musty. Has a low acidity and a nice herbal bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Very well balanced. Body is medium with light carbonation. Very smooth and creamy. This is an excellent beer that I recommend highly.

Woww what a presentation. Pours out a mighty head, white as fresh snow and stays on this great brew forever. Stays longer then Duvel and didn't know that was possible. Pours out perfectly clear and has a beautifull yellow colour, perfect. Nose is mostly hops, probably dry but also some yeastfruit, anis& fresh( maybe also litle koreander) and just great. Taste is "Duvel" like but at least as delicate and fine. Ends very dry, must be dryhopping in the proces.
Full of carbon dioxide make you fully enjoy every sip as if you had a big moutfull, perfectly again.
Drank this one and am lucky that I don't have more in my cellar cause I would probably enjoy em all... great beer!

Cloudy, hazy deep yellow, nearly orange...very bubbly thick white head. The initial aroma smelled like bad beer, reminded me of my grandfather and his Meister Brau...this was only temporary, and the fruity aroma of banana, cloves, and yeast came out.

Has some very nice fruit flavors with a mild touch of hops and carbonation. Nero talks about a touch of vanilla, and as usual he's right on. It's very subtle, but it only adds to the complexity of this delicious brew.

Pours a hazy, pale blonde brew with a nice head.
Smell is very floral and also contains some hints of lemon and yeast. The taste is yet again full of the floral and fruity notes that are detected in the nose. The mouthfeel is very nice and makes this -along with the excellent taste- an extremely refreshing beer.
Very drinkable too. The 7,5% Alc. is well hidden.

An outstanding beer. Everything just seems to fit with this brew, best blonde I've had so far.

Pours a slightly hazy honey colour with a big white head. Settles very slowly and leaves a nice lacing.

Bready, yeasty, citrussy grapefruit hints are present in the aroma. Finishes with a lingering sour yeasty hint.

Taste is of honey, yeast, grapefruit, bananas, and pineapples, accompanied by peppery and slightly warming finish.

Nice mouthfeel, drinks real well. A fantastic beer

11.2 oz bottle. Golden and a bit cloudy, supports a puffy head and leaves alot of lace. yeast, spice, candi sugar in the nose. Taste is crisp, refreshing, fruity, yeasty,lemon,honey, butter, cloves, melon, crisp apples. This one is delicate and complex, heaven in a glass. I love everything about this stuff, from the very heavy, "Duvel" shaped bottle, to the smell, color, taste and finish of this noble Belgian creation. Check it out!

Served from a 33 cl bottle, bought in France, into a wine glass.

A - Extremely pale straw color and crystal clear. The head is white; initially fluffy and thick, but fades to a thin layer and some lacing. Tiny strings of carbonation continually rise. Very attractive.

S - Aroma of marshmallows, bubblegum and sweet bread mix with lemon, black pepper and grassy hops. Complex but inviting.

T - In contrast with aromas, the taste emphasizes cracked black pepper, which combines with the moderate hop bitterness to seem hot and spicy. The flavor of the hops doesn't stand out, but there is a bit of green grass and lemon juice late in the palate. The malt is in the background, as are most yeast notes except for pepper. Complex and changing with every swallow.

M - Spritzy carbonation; moderate to thin body. Some alcohol presence. As mentioned above, hops and pepper-like spiciness give the beer a burning sensation.

O - An outstandingly complex blond; lots going on in aroma and flavor. I think it could use a bit more malt presence, but that is personal opinion and there are certainly no flaws in this beer.

Poured from 11.2oz bottle into Westvleteren chalice.

L - Hazy gold pour with a creamy white head.

S - Green apple, mango/pineapple, candy sugar, must. Mouth-watering.

T - Light cider, white fruits, grape must, candy sugar. Juicy start, dry finish with a slight astringency.

F - Crisp, light carbonation, easy on the palate.

A complex, but not overpowering beer. Very refreshing, a well refined blonde.
