Poured with a lovely, huge head that recedes slowly, sticks to the glass and looks so inviting. Pale, unfiltered straw colour. Smells so good. God I love Belgians! Citrusy, spicy aromas, nice and complex.
This beer goes straight to the nose at first sip. My God, it's everywhere! Mild alcohol, but it's hidden well in all the flavours. Coriander spice, yeasty, banana perhaps? Tangy on the tongue, but goes down creamily smooth with a nice aftertaste that's only mildly bitter, and the taste of fruit sticks around long after.
if it wasn't for the ABV, I could drink this all day long. a very exceptional beer in one of my favorite styles. Cheers!

Poured from the bottle into a snifter.
Cloudy pale straw-colored liquid with a light, foamy head that is pretty much massive. The head settles into a plateau with a hole in the middle, like a volcano, making for an interesting look. Steady carbonation is evident.
ON the nose, I get lots of sweet malt and champagne-like yeast. It's very fruity, there's something peppery and some figs and dates.
Fruitiness continues on the tongue, with some raisins and figs and dark fruit flavor combined with a slight lemon zestiness. There's some sweet bread flavors to complement the fruit, although there's also a bittersweet aspect to the beer, something akin to the peel of a grapefruit.
Duvel's got a lively feel on the tongue, some effervescence and a bittersweet bite. All the while it drinks smoothly and has a lighter feel to it.
No need to state the obvious. It's an excellent beer.
