A:Wow, pours a huge explosive head, this one requires a very gentle pour. It's bone white and the lacing is as sticky as frosting on the side of the glass. Its pretty and a tad hazy golden in color. This is one of those beers where the appearance is so beautiful to me, visual perfection.
S&T: Yeast, Clove,, citrus, and some light green apple notes with that hint of tartness/dryness,and light and crisp hops, like a nice pilsner.
M: very fine carbination, as everyone says like champaign,and a very nice slighty dry finish that leaves a touch of yeasty notes.
D: For being a lighter color and full flavor, and having 8.5%, i could drink this any night, and i bet i could even get some of my BMC friends totally into this beer and start their conversion!
I have had this beer twice before and was honestly never impressed,never got the hype. but this time i was majorly wowed, big time. Glad i gave the Devil another chance!

4.39/5 rDev +3.1%

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.
