Appropriately poured into my Duvel chalice.
First off, without taking my first drink, visually this is the best looking beer I've ever poured!
Half the glass is huge, frothy, rocky head. The bottle pours perfectly into the glass, no room to spare. The carbonation being released from the inscribe "D" on the bottom of the glass leaves a steady stream of beautiful bubbles constantly rising to the top of the beer. Nice!
Smell is yeasty with some alcohol and lemony zest. The mouthfeel is really smooth considering the carbonation that is prevalent. This is a really easy drinking, enjoyable beer. This is a very sessionable beer due to the taste and smoothnesss, but be careful it packs a punch and after a few of these you'll definitely be feeling it. This has been a very pleasant surprise and something I'll revisit quite often.

4.75/5 rDev +11.5%
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'...
