Top notch. This is an example of why our friends in Belgium have their deserved reputation.

Woah, this is a very good Belgian Strong Pale Ale. I never gave it the chance because I thought it would be significantly less refreshing and never was too keen on the bottle shape. I could not be more incorrect. Refreshing, carbonated and perfectly balanced into a magnificent ale that bursts with flavors. The drinkability is phenomenal, and the alcohol is masked perfectly. Pretty good price too, I will absolutely be picking up more of this when I run out.

4th bottle, poured in a tulip :

Brilliant straw color. Extra foamy persistent head, like a cloud that you could eat with a spoon. Incredibly well balanced aromas and flavors of grains and herbal hops, blended with a perfect fruity lemony sensation and a touch of spices.

The only drawback I have is a slight dry taste of alcohol at the end. Very nice slick roundness with a pleasant zesty feeling. Excellent aftertaste with great balance between sweetness and bitterness, intensity and length.

I can easily see why the Duvel is enjoyed by so many for its remarkable balance and craft. One of the best pale ale ever tasted.

Pours with a very large white head. Has a beautiful golden color. Aroma is very sweet and slightly hoppy. Taste is a perfect balance of hops and sweetness. Goes down incredibly smooth. A perfect golden ale.

A - Pours an interesting lime gold, is extremely heady, easy 3 finger head with whispy lacing. Head is very solid like a Snow White hockey puck.
S - Hops, pilsner, lime, alcohol and sweetness.
T - Slight hops with a bit of a pilsner taste, strong on the alcohol with an interestingly enough tequila wang. Limey, very interesting and delicious.
O - A one of a kind beer, will be a repeat buyer.
V - Quite expensive at 15 dollars a four pack.
