12 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a two finger head that has reduced to a thin layer and left some lacing on the side of the glass. A hazy golden straw yello with good signs of carbonation coming up through the center of the glass.

Smell: Belgian candy sweetness, apples, pears, bready and sweet malts, yeasty esters, vanilla, spiciness, and music to my smelling senses.

Taste: All the aromas for the most part can be tasted in the si

Mouthfeel: medium to high carbonation, smooth, somewhat dry, light bodied, and easy to drink.

Overall: I have had this plenty of times before and it is one of my go to beers for this style. You can't go wrong with this beer and very happy now that I have enjoyed another one.

Purchased: Received as a gift

Got this for Christmas in a gift box with 2 other bottles and the elegant glass. My bottle said it was brewed in Belgium at Duvel.

A: Clear, golden colored ale, with a good amount of bubbles in the glass. The white head is a huge rocky mass of 4+ fingers that shows excellent retention and super lacing. A very attractive pour.

S: Fresh and spicy, the aromas are clean and have the typical Belgian yeast notes. Fruit smells as well, as in apples and grapes. I also get some peppery notes. Overall the aromas make a wonderful combination.

T: Taste is complex; wine-like in the dryness and fruit flavors, with the peppery and spicy features carrying over from the nose. Features a nice bite from the hops but I wouldn't call it bitter. Fruity, but not overly sweet. The flavors transform nicely as the beer warms.

M: Crisp mouthfeel from high carbonation on a medium body. The finish is semi-dry with a light tartness.

O: Overall an exceptional beer that I enjoyed highly.
