I had always heard so much about the magnificence of Duvel, I just had to score a bottle and give it a shot. Plus, it is one of the Beers of Fame, which I am on a quest to imbibe all off and review. Side poured with standard energy from the bottle into my regimental tulip glass.

Appearance - Pours a light straw yellow color with an absolutely, ridiculously massive soapy white four finger head that never really fully dissipates, always leaving some sort of head on top of the beer. Clings to the side of the glass like glue. One of the best presentations I've ever seen out of any beer style.

Smell - The yeastiness and breads are certainly present, along with a lot of different lighter fruits such as apples, white grapes, etc. Kind of smells like white wine in a sense. Very good on the nose.

Taste - Tastes like God loves you. The fruity esters sweep the palate and are followed by the crackers and breads towards the middle of the drink. A touch of bitter hoppy, a bit of pepper, very well balanced.

Mouthfeel - Big carbonation, light body, so smooth and easy to drink. I smashed the whole bottle by myself in short order, and besides the good feelings I had, I easily could have drank a lot more. Finishes just a touch bitter and with a hint of alcohol warmth. Awesome.

Overall - Are you kidding me? If you haven't had this beer, you need to go get it right now. Spectacular. Enough said.
