Served in a Duvel signature tulip glass.
Appearance: A pale gold body with very hard bubbles all over and pretty much as cloudy as it gets, the head itself is your average white but is very thick rising up to 2/3" off the body.
Smell: Strong citrus skin, heavy lemon if you ask me. Strong yes, the most desirable depends on the mood.
Taste: A huge lemon sour power bomb, with a scooping dose of yeast that might be overwhelming for some. I like it's unique sourness almost like a rye bread topped with the right sprinkle of ground black pepper.
Mouth: Easily described as heavy bodied, with a sour finish...A tad dry but citrus sticky after taste.
Overall: I have had Duvel god knows how many times and never gave this beer a proper review up until today. Borderline perfect, and usually a steady for me preferably in the summer because of it's citrus background. One of the best go to's you will ever have....grab a glass and enjoy. Salud!

Poured from the bottle into a snifter.
Cloudy pale straw-colored liquid with a light, foamy head that is pretty much massive. The head settles into a plateau with a hole in the middle, like a volcano, making for an interesting look. Steady carbonation is evident.
ON the nose, I get lots of sweet malt and champagne-like yeast. It's very fruity, there's something peppery and some figs and dates.
Fruitiness continues on the tongue, with some raisins and figs and dark fruit flavor combined with a slight lemon zestiness. There's some sweet bread flavors to complement the fruit, although there's also a bittersweet aspect to the beer, something akin to the peel of a grapefruit.
Duvel's got a lively feel on the tongue, some effervescence and a bittersweet bite. All the while it drinks smoothly and has a lighter feel to it.
No need to state the obvious. It's an excellent beer.
