Love this and deserves the grand cru. Try 24.

A: Pours a honey gold body with a white, creamy, fluffy head, decent amount of lacing, lots of carbonation, head lasted and remained covered to edge to edge in a broad tulip named Duvel. (Belgians always better looking that US versions).

A: Aromatic and subtle. Honey, grain, hay, Belgian yeast, earthy, apple orchard. Fall earth.

T: Follows aroma - honey, grain, earth, must, yeast, spice, sweet but peppered with finishing and lingering amount of bitterness, finish adds lemon, spice, pear, and honey, but dry.

M: Medium bodied mouthfeel, semi-dry finish, ample carbonation. Champagne like as in Duvel.

O: I score higher because this beer has lots of flavor and classic Belgian champagne like qualities.

I can’t add too much to the description listed for this beer, it’s spot on. Especially the part about how the first sip is one taste, and the next is different, and the third even better. Complex beer....

11.2 ounce bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a honey orange color with a white, creamy, fluffy head, decent amount of lacing, lots of carbonation, head lasted about 3-4 minutes.

A: Honey, grainy, hay, Belgian yeast, earthy, very aromatic, no alcohol at all on the nose, smells pretty solid.

T: Honey, grain, earth, must, yeasty flavors, some spice, moderate amount of bitterness, finish has hints of lemon, spice, and honey, very tasty.

M: Medium bodied mouthfeel, semi-dry finish, loads of carbonation.

O: I don't understand the low score given by some reviewers, this beer has lots of flavor, is very drinkable, and balanced, I did not regret taking a chance on this beer, will try to pick up a fresher bottle as this one was bottled on 05/02/2013.

First had poured from 11.2-oz. bottle, stamped produced on "12/03/2015" (which probably means March 12 rather than Dec. 3) into goblet. The high ABV is well-hidden in this very quaffable strong pale ale.

From elcervecero. In La Trappe chalice. Watching Sons of Anarchy 7x05. Hoppy, mostly fruity and also some herbaliness, like seems to be the trademark of st feuillien pales.This one is the best of them.

grarbbed a 4 pack with glass that is a oversized wine glass, which was used and had it with chipotle gouda and vinta crackers. it poured an unfiltered golden brew with the bubbbles flowing up the middlle and it gave about 2.5 inches of head. this beer has a lot of smell when you first pour it and it is of oranges, peaches, and pears. the taste is smooth and light with a litttle taste of apricots. being a bottle conditioned beer it tingles the tongue and that is always a plus. overall this is a refreshing brew that is a straight up beer with not much taste and a great feel.
