look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Lumpy, near white head. Lots of chunky lace on the tulip glass. Nearly clear (mild chill haze?). Light gold color

Blend of pale malt, Belgian yeast and alcohol nose. A bit sour.

Starts with a rich body and the pale malt, but no graininess. Next comes the sourness, followed quickly by a notable and balanced hop. The aftertaste is short and mostly sour. The carbonation is low.

Serving type: on-tap

3.74/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A-Pours a clearer straw color. I expected this to look pretty and it didn't disappoint. It is adorned with a clean, tight, white head. Light level-rings mark my pace down the chalice.

S-Neatened up Belgian yeast. Soft fruity esters. A bit of old-time spice. Some pale sweetness. Simple but enticing and buttoned up.

T-Flavor brought forth more sweetness. It is still very influenced by that signature Duvel yeastiness. Soft, grassy hops. Grainy and spicy on the finish.

M-Very drinkable. Crisp and quenching with uplifting carbonation. My pour disappeared very quickly.

O-A tasty Belgian Pale that doesn't go overboard in any one area. I found the $9 pour to be somewhat ridiculous but that's the bar's fault. I will take the traditional Duvel over this every time but I haven't stumbled upon this on draft before and trust the brand enough to spend the money.

Serving type: on-tap

(served in a Duvel tulip)

A: extremely clear, extremely pale-golden liquid... beautiful cottony, spongy white foam - takes forever to recede, maintains a thin, pillowy cap till the end... laces like a champ

S: sugar-cookie dough... mellow flowery hops... mild corn-mealy, moonshine-like phenolics

T: silken, lightly-toasted, graham cracker-y malt... delicately spicy hop and phenolic overtones... sort of background tinting of bright citrus zest... no one flavor really stands out - all are delicate and finely balanced

M: lager-light in body, crisp.... quite dry... only a faint glow of warmth

O: this is what I tell every customer it is - a mellower, more 'easy-drinking' version of Duvel (as if Duvel Sr. is laborious to drink!).... most casual or less-adventurous beer drinkers really dig it, while some feel it's too restrained... pleases most though
