750ml bottle; corked.
I will start with the head. The head from this beer is white, tiny bubbles producing a very foamy froth. Lacing is all over the glass and retention, well, you could die waiting for this ale to fall asleep. The color was a straw yellow. At first it was champagne white, but the more you pour, the darker it gets. As it sits, the head will get rocky. Colorado has nothing on Duvel.
When I brought my nose to the rim of the glass I was greeted pleasantly by my new friend. I smelled pineapple, dry crackers, and tiny bits of lemon holding up the rear. I could also smell spring water. I may be crazy, but when I picture standing next to a clean stream or spring, this would be what I would smell.
Crisp. The tiny bubbles excite and awaken your tongue from its usual slumber. Do not swallow to early, for the bubbles will fight you all the way down. The taste is buttery, slight lemon and alcohol. Some freshly baked crackers, or light wheat bread.
A VERY drinkable beer. One of the many things that draw me to this beer is that the novice and the expert can with some patience enjoy it. Few beers offer such calm complexity.
