I poured the Duvel into a pint -- my goblets are dirty. Last I checked, the head was four inches. As I type, the beer is consuming itself, cobweb lacing down the side of the glass and a giant marshmallow formation in the center. This reminds me of being 12-years-old and wanting to shave so bad that one day I went into the bathroom while my dad was at work and lathered a can of shaving cream on my face.
I haven't touched the beer yet. I feel so unnecessary.
This would be nice in a flute; more effervescent than champagne. The head needs to be controlled (or paroled). It's like pouring from a tap that's gone haywire. And having to sit around for ten minutes while this thing settles sucks. Straw golden body like an American lager, hazy but a good deal of light comes through -- Los Angeles in June.
All hops on the nose -- spicy, cidery, sharp. Is this a Belgian or a Pilsner?
Tastes like a smoky hefe. Very clean, lagery, with mild gumball from the yeast and some alcoholic exhaust. The strong hop aroma is all but lost on the tongue with only a minor tang that immediately fades out. Sweet and malty (creamy indeed), but where's my Saaz? For a Belgian Strong Pale, not much going on here. A total wash-out.
What the hell? This thing is still bubbling.

Pours a one finger bubbly white head, hazy golden yellow body. Lots of bubbles rising to the top. Beautiful.
Sweet banana bread, cinnamon, and clove in the aroma. Slight citrus and floral notes.
Some sort of spice-like note on the tongue. Grassy and earthy. Citrus and floral on the back of the tongue. Bit of cinnamon and clove.
Lot's of carbonation, nice smooth mouthfeel.
