Poured from the bottle into a tulip/thistle glass. Best before July 2013 so she should be ready to roll.
A very thin bubbled totally white head of two finger size with some cake like retention. Real nice lemon gold clear body with much carbonation visible. The clarity on this beer is quite amazing has some very see through character to it. Head falls slowly and head bubbles all seem to be a nice pin head size. Good glow to this beer too and lots of sticky lacing as well.
Bouquet on the Duvel is a simple basic slight butter and yeast. Quite pleasant with a faint must. This is probably a good place to start, it's not too strong on the nose. Has a sweet creamy smell to some extent too, but also a sense of very clean.
Taste is predominantly fizzy... like club soda. Fresh club soda. I am getting... nothing else. Is this club soda beer? What's missing here? I feel like I am drinking Canada Dry or something with perhaps a little bit of hay/grass.
I can't rate this very high and probably not going to have it again for drinkability cause I know there are others in this style that I prefer by far.
