A - poured into my Duvel glass, making the rotunda font D in the head, as the bubbles emit from the etched D in the bottom. the colour was a bright honey yellow and the head was a solid white.
S - there is a slight hop bitterness, and alcohol mostly; though I can say there is some sort of tartness reminiscent to granny smith apple skin.
T - there is a nice hop bitterness, and the taste of the alcohol comes to fruition towards the middle of the tasting and the aftertaste. the tartness that was in the aroma is now a slight sweetness in the mid drinking process.
MF&D - very drinkable despite the abv and aftertaste presence. the carbonation is so smooth the beer is crisp like a freshly ironed shirt, very light on the palate. quite exceptional all around.

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.
