A-Light, pale straw with a nice head that lasted until it was almost gone.
S-Fruity notes w/hint of spice and honey. The combination is reminiscent of bubble gum.
T-The malts are terrific, and the sweet aromas make you think the ale is sweeter than it actually is...delightful. There are hints of spiciness, and the hops wash the palate clean at the end. Class act.
M-Medium bodied with perfect level of carbonation. This drinks nicely, goes down smooth, and makes you want more. The alcohol bares itself just before the finish, and it makes me feel good all over.
D-I just had this stuff tonight after several years without. I forgot how good it was. I'm going to stock up next time I'm at the store.

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.
