Obtained via growler fill at Community Beverage in Elmhurst, NY. Served in the requisite Duvel tulip glass.

A - Slightly darker than regular duvel, and the head, while nice and fluffy, is less resilient. Still leaves lots of very clingy lacing.

S - More pronouced than the bottled version. Fruitier and maltier, but less balanced. Also got a whiff of alcohol.

T - Just what I was hoping for. Crisp, citric, slightly yeasty, slightly hoppy, slightly malty, with just a twinge of spice. Bready and slightly bitter finish. Yum.

M - Less carbonation considering the serving type, but still rich and well balanced in body.

D - Still crazily drinkable, especially this time around with the lower ABV. It's still not in the session ABV range, but I'm totally going to session this anyway.

overall - I'm so glad I got the chance to try the draft version of my absolute favorite beer. It seems like a more sociable, accessible Duvel, which is definitely not a bad thing. The bottled Duvel is something you sit and savor, basking in its devilish glory. This is one you can drink more of, casually amongst good company. Either way, both are still excellent brews.

Serving type: growler

Fairly clear straw with a lingering head of white foam. Aroma is floral, with lemon zest and Belgian yeast funk. There's a bit of spice and perfumey notes. Flavor is lemony and minerally, with a cracker malt backbone. Very clean and refreshing, with a great balance of bitter finish and citrus character.

Serving type: on-tap
