Poured into a Duvel Tulip glass from the bottle

Well masked alcohol, relatively high carbonation with thick foam at the top, Great taste, can't believe this is not in the top 100 beers list.

Although a bit pricey, it's relatively easy to find (which is a big plus). On this particular occasion, I had a glass of Duvel, followed by Damnation by Russian River Brewery and I thought Duvel was better! (although Damnation was pretty damn good too).

A: Pours a golden hay color. Slightly hazy. Tons of carbonation streaming up from their etched glass. Big white fluffy head sticks around forever and leaves good lacing.

S: First thing I get is spice (coriander). Lots of it. Then that belgium bready yeast character shines through. Lots of lemon zest. Smells fantastic!

T: Spice and zest. Earthy hop. Belgium yeast. A touch of alcohol is present, but it is pretty well masked. Overall light and refreshing. A light lemon tartness is present in the aftertaste. Excellent balance.

M: Extremely carbonated, medium-light body. Fills the mouth (and stomach) with CO2 and creates a champagne spritz-y feeling across the tongue.

I've been meaning to buy this one for a while, but the only thing that discouraged me was the price. I snagged a 4 pack on sale (and with a really cool Duvel oversized tulip) for $12.99. I am going to thoroughly enjoy drinking the other three!
