4.94/5 rDev +16.2%
look: 4.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
330ml stubby into wine glass (due to the abscence of a snifter)
A: cloudy golden straw color with a fantastic head of chunky white foam. Looks great and the head won't die.
S: the other reviews don't lie juicy fruit on the nose. Lots of apple almost like cider. Good yeasty smell like a bread starter. A bit of alcohol on the nose but it makes it smell like white wine. The apple smell is so strong I can smell it a foot from the glass.
T: sweet, more cidery apple flavor with great yeast flavor. Same as the nose, but it has more to it than that. It finishes a little bitter but not overpowering. Really good. It finishes good and dry like brut.
M: smooth and devilshly good. Lighter body than expected almost like a lager but the carbonation gives it a very champagne like mouthfeel but thicker. Like a lager. Wonderful.
O: no wonder it is called one of the worlds best beers. This is great. Not much else I can say really but ohh hell yeah.

4.75/5 rDev +11.8%
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'...
