Packaging: 750 ml brown bottle

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.
