Served in a Duvel-branded tulip glass, poured 'unhurriedly' from a 750 ml bottle
A - Like champagne; a beautiful golden color with delicate bubbling and a thick, indestructible head. I've never seen a head stay this thick this long.
S - Light, slightly Yuzu-like citrus, mostly hops and yeast
T - If refreshing had a specific taste, it would be this. A strong hoppy start mellowing into a clean pale ale taste, like a bitter citrus, before its amazingly clean finish. 'Kick ass' is the only appropriate description i can think of.
M - Screw That miller high life crap. THIS is the champagne of beers. The fizz is strong but pleasant, and the logic defying head adds a dimension of smoothness to its bite.
D - Absolutely dangerous. I don't taste the alcohol much, but the 8.5% goes right to your head. i could probably drink this 24/7, but I'd never be coherent again for the rest of my life. Best to stick to one or two drinks worth.
At first, I was skeptical of the high praise this beer has gotten, and I don't remember exactly enjoying it when I first tried it, but now that my tastes in beer have grown considerably, I can say that this one deserves all the hyperbole it gets. If you like beer, you owe it to yourself to try this one at least once. You won't regret it.
