Poured from a bottle into a duvel tulip of course.
A-Wow, I don't even know where to begin, a gorgeous light golden color,a bit cloudy from the yeast sediment, an incredibly huge 3" stark white fluffy head sits atop this amazing looking beer and slowly turns to beautiful lacing. Also there is an odd cyclone of carbonation spinning around on top of the etched D of my glass, it's truly a sight to behold. This is hands down one of the best looking beers I've ever seen
S-Spice, fruit, yeast, muddled hops and malt.
T-An explosion of spiced fruit, yeast, hops, malt, sugar, molasses and carmel; my words really can't do the flavor of this beer justice.
M-Full bodied, very carbonated, my mouth is considered lucky to have had the honor to feel this.
D-Is this really 8.5%? The alcohol is almost a non-factor in this beer, this is incredible, simply stated one of the best, period.

4.39/5 rDev +3.1%

Poured from the bottle into a snifter.
Cloudy pale straw-colored liquid with a light, foamy head that is pretty much massive. The head settles into a plateau with a hole in the middle, like a volcano, making for an interesting look. Steady carbonation is evident.
ON the nose, I get lots of sweet malt and champagne-like yeast. It's very fruity, there's something peppery and some figs and dates.
Fruitiness continues on the tongue, with some raisins and figs and dark fruit flavor combined with a slight lemon zestiness. There's some sweet bread flavors to complement the fruit, although there's also a bittersweet aspect to the beer, something akin to the peel of a grapefruit.
Duvel's got a lively feel on the tongue, some effervescence and a bittersweet bite. All the while it drinks smoothly and has a lighter feel to it.
No need to state the obvious. It's an excellent beer.
