What an unusual beer.
Poured into the Duvel tulip, there is an orange/golden body (looks a lot like lucozade) with a big frothy/rocky head but very little lacing to speak of. We get some spotty thin head left on the surface of the beer, and the Duvel tulip engraving continues produce bubbles of carbonation.
Yeast and peach/apricot are the overwhelming aromas – the peach/apricot is really strong and reminds me of an aromatic shower gel! I know this doesn’t sound really nice, but it is not bad!
Taste is very, very, very floral. It’s all flowers, with a tiny bit of sweetness and a very short, small, dry finish. It’s so unusual it’s the kind of thing you could serve as an aperitif in place of a light bodied wine, or indeed with a desert.
Drinkability is OK, but there is no way I could drink much of this since the flavor is a bit odd.
Not the best beer that Stone makes by a long chalk, but at the same time worth a least one try.
