11.2 oz bottle, tulip glass (not the Duvel one)

A – Golden, straw. Big, foamy white head, at least two inches. Head fades away very slowly. Extremely clear, very much like a golden pilsner. (4.25)

S – Very spicy, some mild fruitiness, esters. A little bit of alcohol, a touch of something like raisins. Hay. (4.00)

T – Tons of carbonation and maltiness, light toasty flavors. A bit of a dusty flavor, like an old but well-kept house. Some fruitiness from esters. Maybe a touch of lemon, and spicy, peppery notes. Some acidity in the balance. (4.00)

M – Again, very highly carbonated. There’s acidity and bitterness very much up front but it is wiped out by the bubbles. Really very palate-cleansing. Dry finish, leaves you ready for the next sip. (4.50)

O – Duvel’s reputation precedes it, so it’s hard to separate that out when evaluating. Luckily it lives up to the hype. An incredibly refreshing ber, with complex flavor and aroma profiles, that can also knock you on your ass if you aren’t paying attention. Fantastic. (4.25)

Bottle must have been shaken from the car ride home. Foam everywhere and huge pieces of yeast were in the head. I will be revisiting this one eventually.
