Duvel comes by its legendary status deservedly — a first-class example of its genre from start to finish.

It poured from the bottle into my snifter with a large, three-finger head that sat perched over a golden, straw-coloured beer with some cloudiness. The head had considerable retention, and remained till the end, leaving a sticky lace on the glass.

The smell was yeasty with fruity esters and a hint of malt — very inviting, though maybe not as complex as my favourite Belgian pale ale, Fin du Monde.

This is a pleasant, well-balanced experience despite its classification as a "big" Belgian beer. It hides its 8.1% ABV (that's what the bottle said — I know it differs from the info up top) well and goes down smooth. I personally favour a bit more carbonation than Duvel offers and marked its drinkability down only slightly because of what I perceive as a bit of a dry, astringent aftertaste.
