A: Very pale sunshine yellow. Gigantic 3 finger white head with large bubbles. Very long retention.

S: Grassy funk and yeast esters dominant the nose. Some faint pepper and banana.

T: Banana, clove, pepper. Light citrus - lemon and orange. A nice subtle earthy funk.

M: Medium body and an almost steady stream of bubbles even several minutes after pour.

O: Excellent Tripel. A classic representation of the style.

Had this poured out of the bottle into a snifter. I've heard nothing but good things about Duvel, and was happy to hear that it lived up to its hype. Beautiful deep golden color. Fruity aromas. Crisp finish with notes of apple and orange. Also love the classic label. Awesome stuff.

DATE REVIEWED: June 26, 2014... GLASSWARE: Duvel snifter... OCCASION: NBA Draft Day 2014--Cavs take Wiggins and intend to keep him...APPEARANCE: two-tiered head--rocky, mountainous atop bubbly,, crystal white that occupies half the glass; slightly opaque golden body with a wellspring of bubbles centering the glass; lacing is appealing... AROMA: brilliant pilsner introduction; fragrant floral, perfumed hops; some suggestions of pepper...desirable... PALATE: quick, aggressively smooth with a solid, lingering finish--a bit dry and mouth-watering... TASTE: honey and hops are warming--nectar of the gods! a bit sweet, like a Riesling--but oh so rewarding... OVERALLL: only three sips are needed to bring the tingle, not unlike your team drafting first overall for the third time in four years; as its name suggests, sadistically drinkable, tempting with crisp, clean flavor, then punishing with cruel, powerful alcoholic hammers...the steep price--literally and figuratively--is unfortunately warranted.
