4.36/5  rDev +2.3%
look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from bottle at roughly 40 degrees into, what else, my Duvel tulip.

A: Extremely clean light gold with a huge white three finger head. Looks perfect in this glass.

S: Again, very clean. Some lemon and citrus mixed in with a note of white grapes.

T: Damn that's crisp. A good amount of spice at the front, but mellows out. Just a very well-balanced beer.

M: I keep coming back to this word, but the best way to describe this beer is clean. A good amount of carbonation (which adds to the pleasant appearance). Would be very easy to have too many of these without picking up on the ABV until you stand up.

O: I will never call myself a huge fan of Belgian-style beers, but this is one of the best I've ever had. Add in the fact that this beer looks simply perfect in its own glass, and this was an enjoyable experience.

4.23/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a tall tulip glass. A big three fingers of head on a clear, golden colored body. Lots of bubbles coming up.
The aroma is lemon and crushed grain in a wonderful way.
The taste is champagne like with a light fruit and mild bitterness. The complexity is great.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Obviously one of the best beers around.
