Here's a style that has possibilities— delicious hops layered on yeasty Belgian flavors. Clear bright yellow brew with plenty of white foam in the snifter. There's a gentle funk with a serious fruity flavor, fermenting pineapple dosed with pear tart and candied citron

It's intriguingly hot and sweet but balanced with the hops and a modest bitterness. The flavors are really bold but it's highly drinkable. Duvel should buy the recipe. In any case I hope to see it around again in some form. From the 500 ml bottle purchased at Elizabeth Station in Bellingham, Wash.
