3.89/5 rDev -8.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
330 ml bottle (six-pack style) poured into glass mug
A = yellow, pale gold, lively carbonation ... and opaque but still very light. looks almost, dare i say, like an American lager, but with a rich white head, creamy almost ... a head full enough to hold up a bottle cap
S = subtle, almost stale, again more akin to what i think of as American lager than ale ... but a perfect beer smell. could've fooled me into thinking its a lager.
T = clean, crisp, relatively light but with a very strong hops taste that tips you off that this is no lager. i'm going to say a bit fruity, though my palette is immature.
F = again with the theme: light. almost watery. very carbonated.
O = really good but very different from what i was expecting, probably because i fell in love with Chimay's white earlier this week, and being a novice when it comes to Belgian ales and trappist, I'm confusing myself on tastes. I like this beer a lot and have a feeling I'm going to like it more and more.

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'...
