330ml bottle poured into tulip. Appearance is cloudy and light golden in color with a towering white head that slowly collapses. Lots of lacing all over the glass. Aroma is of ripe apples, pears, spices, cereal malt sweetness, and alcohol. Taste is lightly sweet with notes of fruit and cereal, balanced by a little grassy hop bitterness and spicy/peppery bite. Light bodied, creamy, champagne-like carbonation and drying finish.

My first Duvel and what a treat! I can absolutely understand how people could call this the best in the world, although I'm not quite there - tend to think I'm still looking. It's beautiful yellow-orange with a fluffy head and clouds up just a tad at the end when the sediment/yeast makes it out on the last drop. Nice citrus and floral on the nose, but the yeast really steals the show. It's a sweet organic scent that I normally wouldn't call appealing, but this just seems different, like the mastermind behind a great symphony. And the music that follows is special. Bright, bubbly, and complex, but balanced in an uncanny way. Didn't realize this was 8.5% until after I drank it, you'd never know. Could very well be the best there is, but Belgium definitely is.
