Poured into a delirium tremens tulip from a 750 ml corked bottle.
This beer looks absolutely perfect when you pour it. A nice white mountain of foam sits atop a very light, golden, pale colored beer with bubbles flowing up from the etching in the bottom of the glass. Heaven in a glass.
The smell might be the best part of this beer. I was smelling it forever trying to find out what fruit smells i could decipher and after a while i decided that it smells like apples and strawberries. Maybe even like pears and bananas at the end? There is also that Belgian bitter yeast smell floating around in there, mmh! I love this beer way too much.
The taste is just beyond words. It is a strong beer and alcohol is evident in every sip. The malts definitely take the back seat in this beer, but hey that is completely fine. Its not like you cant taste the delicious pilsner malts, they just complement the hops and the yeast perfectly. The beer is perfectly hoped, not so much that it outshines the yeast, but not so little that you cant taste them. The only way that i can describe what this beer does to my taste buds is that it gives them multiple orgasms. Its perfect in every way!
The beer is pretty carbonated, i would compare it to champagne after it has been sitting out for a little while. You just never want this beer to leave your mouth... ever. Its light, but fills your mouth flavor at the same time.
This beer is all too drinkable and goes way too fast.
Its is a bit spendy for my budget, but when i get the craving for Duvel, nothing can satisfy me but Duvel.

4.75/5 rDev +11.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Appearance: Very light jonquil/gold body with a crisp ivory head.
Aroma: A beautiful blend of light grains, yeast, and grass-notes.
Taste: Much like the aroma, but with an earthy backbone and almost citrus-like resolve in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: A fair amount of carbonation, if not an ideal amount; very fitting for a strong ale.
Overall: We all know that 'Duvel' is one of those classics that work whenever and wherever; cool summer nights or by the fireplace in the dead of winter - a true classic. However, I felt that it was missing an extra...something. To be fair, I will stand behind 'Duvel' as one of the "can't-go-wrong" beers, but if only it had an extra bit of 'oomph'...
