I cracked this evil brew on the stroke of midnight on Halloween. I felt that this was a very appropriate time to review a beer that's name means "Devil." Like Faust, I'm conjuring the Duvel...here goes nothin'.
This one has a giant 4 finger head that just keeps rising like a monster from the depths. Lots of tiny bubbles rise from the bottom of the glass like champagne, and the big bubbles in the head look like a honeycomb. Lots of small wet spots of lacing coat the glass.
Smells like wet barnyard hay. Grassy, lemon rinds, dry pine forest needles, dried flowers, and a touch of alcohol. Also, hints of sweet honey.
Tastes strongly pastoral. Farmyard hay, dusty yeast, lemon grass, and spicey hops. There is alot going on here. It's almost assaulting to the taste buds at first, but also very nice once I became aquainted with the assertive and unapologetically bizzare flavor. Sweet in the middle with a dry and dusty finish with loads of alcohol.
Mouthfeel is on the lighter side of medium bodied with lots of tingly carbonation and a very dry finish that lasts quite a while. Decently drinkable, but the high alcohol content and uniquely dry flavor could prevent me from drinking more than one or two.

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.
