12 oz can into tulip. cant make out the canned on or best before date printed on the side of the can.

A: pours with virtually no head. hazed orange body. theres some brown stuff on the bottom of my glass. it looks like wood splinters. limited lacing.

S: soft fruit. pears. no hop aroma. sweet unfermented sugar.

T: very similar to the nose. a lot of fruit. very sweet. pears. a little bit of yeasty, earthy bitterness. chalky for a moment. finish has a lingering sweetness.

M: moderate carb on a medium body.

D: not bad, not great. finding this very middle of the road. wish I knew what this crap was sitting at the bottom of my glass. working past that, this thing still doesn't have anything that really grabs me.

A: Pours a fairly hazy golden-yellow color. The white head is reasonably large, with medium density. Retention is good. Some nice lacing sticks to the glass.

S: There's a pleasant honey-on-a-biscuit aroma up front. Quite fruity underneath those initial tones. Big notes of white grape and peach, with secondary notes of pear and granny smith apple. Hop aroma is pretty light, with faint herbal and perfumey character. A bit of light, dusty spiciness and alcohol is also noticeable.

T: Some dry, faintly graint maltiness up front, with some light sugary notes. Hops crash in with some drying bitterness and very light herbal flavor. Fruity notes lurk throughout; white grape acidity, stone fruit vibrancy, and apple/pear sweetness are prominent. A bit of clove-like spice adds depth. Alcohol is mildly apparent.

M: Medium-light body. Carbonation is fine but quite perky, adding a nice prickle to the mouthfeel. Dryness, as expected, hits hard toward the finish. Alcohol adds a bit of heat, but it's within expectations for the style.

O: I like this one a lot. It's vibrant and tasty while remaining fairly approachable - perhaps because it's a bit less phenolic than some other Belgian-style pales. A fruity, dry, and drinkable winner.

I thought that it was going to be like duvel since the description said it was their answer to it. Didn't have much of a smell. served in a chimay like goblet glass. Touch of apple on the nose, some alcohol, and malt. half-one finger head. For me it didn't feel like a belgian strong ale. It tasted more of a saison with a boozy bite to it. That didn't mean the beer was bad but it was not described properly. Would I get it again? Probably not.
