4/5 rDev -6.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
The single most carbonated ale I have ever seen the rush of bubbles created a telescopic off white head. The more the bubbles rushed to the surface the farther the head retreated from the top of the glass. The ale had a cloudy golden hue that was quite striking.
The scent is of yeast, cloves, honey and even a bit of lemon. Very complex.
A kind of mead like quality the taste is like a Bit O' Honey candy. There is an apple taste at the back and I'm impressed with the variance on the tongue. There's even a bit of citrus somewhere in there but it is lost quickly.
Despite the immense carbonation the feel is light and tangy. Very smooth it drinks easy and well.
These are not my favorite flavors, especially in beer, but I understand the high numbers this ale receives as it is very intricate in its tones.
Serving type: on-tap

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'...
