look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
poured from its trademark stubby bottle into a wine chalice. bright pale golden in appearance, somewhawt opaque, with a pillowy white head; thick and creamy up top. an endless supply of bubbles make their way towards the head and last til the beer is no more and remind me of champagne. head remained until the very end as well. a beautiful beer. smells yeasty accompanied by alcohol, smells a bit dry, not noticing much fruit or sweetness on the nose. taste is crisp as can be, from start to finish. classic belgian yeast flavors, a little hint of citrus sweetness, and definitive alcohol on the finish. the bitterness on the end of each sip is enjoyable and lasts forever. i finished the beer 15 minutes ago and the bitterness is just now leaving. mouthfeel is almost creamy at the beginning, then it feels fairly juicy in the middle. excellent, burp inducing carbonation all over the place. scores ok for drinkability, i would not be able to rush through these, but 3 or 4 wouldn't be too much a task, and would be all you need. very well crafted beer.

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'...
