This is a damned fine beer!
Looks fantastic in my duvel glass, beautiful rocky head that lasted nearly the entire glass. Lacing very prevalent. Nothing at all I would change.
Smell's a little weak, lots of fruit and alcohol. Nothing really grabs me tho.
Taste is fantastic, but slightly lacking in complexity. I was expecting a little more, I must admit. Either way, it tastes great... apples and citrus mostly, alcohol comes throught at the end but not overwhelming. Nice warming of the tummy on this cold winter night.
It's got a great body and perfect amount of carbonation. Leaves a slight hoppy finish.
I don't know if I'd drink more than 2 of these in a sitting, but they're awfully easy to put down, and at the price I found it, it can't be beat.
I'll make sure to pick up a couple more bottles next time I go to the store!

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'...
