Hazy golden beer with a big, rocky, white head. Quite a bit of lacing ended up on the glass. Light fruit and spice in the nose, quite sweet with some alcohol. Flavour is sweet up front with some pear. Light bitterness that leads into a medium dry finish that has some pepperiness and alcohol warmth at the end. Texture is a bit creamy, medium body, carbonation on the lower side.

Got it on tap at the Merry Monk in Albany, where they served it in the appropriate (named) glassware.

A: Body is bright golden with a 1+ finger white head that fades slowly and leaves a bit of lace on the glass up top.

S: Not too strong in the nose: light, grainy malt, a touch of citrus and some spice.

T: First impression: bready/grainy malt, spice and citrus. "Good citrus vibrancy" I wrote. Also some bread dough, perhaps from the yeast strain, and a lighter malt character. Alcohol isn't noted on the taste, but is felt in the belly as a nice warmth. Finishes fairly balanced between sweet and citrusy bitterness.

M: Kind of crisp, but also nice creaminess to the carbonation. Call it slightly lighter than medium in heft.

D: I enjoyed this - call it somewhere between Duvel Single (the green label) and regular Duvel. I'd have it again.

Review from 4/2011 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip.
Pours a cloudy yellow-orange amber. Foamed out of the bottle on opening, aggressive carbonation. Massive white head and nice lacing. Pleasant light fruit (apples and citrus) and light Belgian spices aroma. Taste is similar, nice sweet light fruit, light Belgian spicing and a bit of hop kick. Fairly understated, but the flavors are well balanced and tasty. Not as good as the better Belgian Belgian strong dark ales, but I enjoyed drinking this.
