4.71/5 rDev +10.6%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
A: pale gold and crystal clear, with vibrant bubbles that stream from the bottom and persist throughout the drink. The Duvel head is legendary: I call it, "big-as-ya-want-it," because you could easily overfill even the most generous glass with a center-pour of this beer.
S: golden orchard fruits, earthy and bright; floral; tangy yeastiness
T: sharp, crisp, alcohol, yeast, hops, some pepperiness and spice, deeper pale fruits and darker spices orchard rich, yet with a crispness
M: astringent, tart, biting, brisk; light-medium body, super carbonation; scintillating
O: this is a classic drink - limitless in its pairings, BTW - I honestly consider this beer to be the a top 5 Belgian strong pale ale. Duvel is my standard by which other Belgian strong pale ales are measured. Any BA is best served by having a Duvel at some point.

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'...
