330 ml (11.2 oz)bottle drank from Tulip shaped Duvel Glass at around 50 degrees F.
A - When I opened the bottle immediately began burst with energy. Poured mildly cloudy, light amber color but clear after settling. This beer is very carbonated and pour perfectly into the glass with 2" white foamy head. Head lasted about five minutes remained throughout leaving rings, very dense and frothy.
S - Smells like perfection. Smells almost fruity with a hint of grainy punch. The aroma is complex but simply extraordinary. The aroma creates yearnig for what is to come.
T - Complimentary taste preluded by its smell. Light but strong at the same time. Hidden complexities in this brew. One of the best in creating warming feeling throughout. Slightly lingering aftertaste makes you yearn for more.
M - Velvety and smooth complex feel for such a light looking beer. Head creates feeling of carbonation but smooth from lips to the belly.
D - Excellent all around beer. Fulfilling in every way. One of those beers that you can enjoy anytime.

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.
