4.68/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Pours a pale golden color with a huge head that stays forever. The lacing stuck to the entire glass for the duration. The head looks like a fluffy cloud after the beer sits a while, nice.

Smell is of wheat, banana, yeast and slight alcohol.

Taste is very nice, clove, banana, lemon, yeasty, with a slight bitter, dry, hop finish. My,my,my this is lovely.

Mouthfell is great smooth, velvety, (did I say the most smooth and refreshing beer ever) medium bodied with excelent carbination, small bubbles.

Drinkability is incredible, I could put these away all night. The alcohol is nicely balanced with the malt and hops.

This is the best example of this style that I have tried. Duvel is smooth and deceiving. This beer will sneak up on you and kick you in the arse. It is sooo smooth and tasty, you won't notice the alcohol until the Duvel boot is planted forcefully on your backside.

Great, Great Beer!!!!

4.75/5  rDev +11.8%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Appearance: Very light jonquil/gold body with a crisp ivory head.

Aroma: A beautiful blend of light grains, yeast, and grass-notes.

Taste: Much like the aroma, but with an earthy backbone and almost citrus-like resolve in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: A fair amount of carbonation, if not an ideal amount; very fitting for a strong ale.

Overall: We all know that 'Duvel' is one of those classics that work whenever and wherever; cool summer nights or by the fireplace in the dead of winter - a true classic. However, I felt that it was missing an extra...something. To be fair, I will stand behind 'Duvel' as one of the "can't-go-wrong" beers, but if only it had an extra bit of 'oomph'...
