4.51/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a bottle into the Duvel glass.

A: Golden yellow, thick two finger, soapy head. Lots of carbonation. A little hazy, mostly clear though.

S: I smell pepper, yeast, apples maybe, some sort of fruit(s).

T: Tart tasting. Definitely getting the yeast and possibly apple taste. Hops, and also the pepper.

M: Medium bodied. Pretty crisp, dry mouthfeel. Smooth on the feel.

Overall this is a great beer. Doesn't get much better for the style.

Poured the Devil oh yeah, into the Belgium Duvel glass.

A - The clear beauty, is light yellow grass with a two finger of white puffy head.

S - Getting some Belgian yeast, touch of clove with mild sweet light fruit.

T - Ahh, nice crisp and refreshing, I taste more clove, Belgian yeast, bread, some citrus mid palate. Not noticing hardly any alcohol. Some tartness.

M - Highly carbonated, with a silky smooth light finish.

O - This is a nice beer, Gotta give it high marks. Highly Recommeded! Cheers!!

3.89/5  rDev -8.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

330 ml bottle (six-pack style) poured into glass mug

A = yellow, pale gold, lively carbonation ... and opaque but still very light. looks almost, dare i say, like an American lager, but with a rich white head, creamy almost ... a head full enough to hold up a bottle cap

S = subtle, almost stale, again more akin to what i think of as American lager than ale ... but a perfect beer smell. could've fooled me into thinking its a lager.

T = clean, crisp, relatively light but with a very strong hops taste that tips you off that this is no lager. i'm going to say a bit fruity, though my palette is immature.

F = again with the theme: light. almost watery. very carbonated.

O = really good but very different from what i was expecting, probably because i fell in love with Chimay's white earlier this week, and being a novice when it comes to Belgian ales and trappist, I'm confusing myself on tastes. I like this beer a lot and have a feeling I'm going to like it more and more.
