mild earthiness, well integrated yeasts, don't throw out the dregs

moderate carbonation; one finger head; excellent lacing

spicy, fruity, really different at first sip but really grows on you

nice medium bodied beer that hides the alcohol; not filling

A- whitish, yellow body with champagne like carbonation. a solid two fingers of head that doesn't seem to be fading.

S- I want to say european fuggle hops? Not a whole lot giving me an indication what I'm in for.

T- It's nice. It sure doesn't taste like 8.5%. It's kind of sour, but in an interesting way. Very balanced though.

M- It's champagne. There's very little left to the imagination.

O- It's good. It's historical. It's my first one of it's kind. It will be one of those beers I have to go back to after trying more examples of the style. I wonder if the temperature was held correctly during conditioning or if the priming sugar was off because I did not expect it to be this spritzy. I have a hard time imagining I got a bad bottle of Duvel though.
