330ml bottle. Duvel Oversized Tulip glass. Pale gold, clear appearance. White froth remains as a thin layer on top. Intense grapefruit, underneath resin, anise & Belgian yeast aromas rounded by notes of pepper, herbs, earth, sour almond & tropical fruit. Crispy & sugary upfront is swept out by gentle citric hops & ripe fruit notes. Medium to light body. Moderate to high carbonation. Oily texture. Subtle citric zest & sour almonds astringency linger into a bitter/sweet finish. Fruity aftertaste shows memories of green wood & resins. Well integrated & kind alcohol. Refreshing drinkability.

11.2oz bottle, Best Before 10 2015
L - very bubbly hazy champaign colored ale topped with a crazy persistent frothy white head
S - nice floral hop aroma, zesty, citric, fruity, banana and mandarin
T - very zesty with moderate bitterness; notes of orange and grapefruit zest, white grape, champagne, floral hops, biscuit, Belgian yeast, grassy and earthy hops - nice complexity
F - bitterness builds, drying on the palate, medium body with full carbonation bordering on being over carbonated.
O - a bit of a surprise here. I'm not crazy over the regular Duvel, but this was something different. I like it, although it was a bit pricy at $4.99 for the single bottle.

From the 11.2 fl. oz bottle marked 09-2015-L9282-1403. Sampled on February 1, 2014.
The pour is golden yellow with active carbonation leading up to a white fizzy head. The head fades to a ring in short order.
The aroma has a sort of crispy freshness to it due to the grassy hops intermingling with the grape and other citrus characters. Malts are hard to notice.
The body is light, bubbly, but also smooth.
The taste also has that same grassy character but the malts are easier to find on the palate than on the nose. A good toasted pale malt character balances off with the champagne-like effervescent. Slightly lingering finish. It has a very champagne feel to the whole thing.
