One of the Belgian abbey-style beers that we drink pretty often.

A golden hue, almost cloudy, with lots of foamy head. The scent is very yeasty, almost musty.
The taste is much sweeter, even a little citrus-like. A lighter flavor than what you might expect, masking the 8.5% ABV.

A little hoppiness comes through on the tip of the tongue on aftertaste. Maybe even a bit of "metallic-ness" on the back of the tongue (like a wine aged in copper rather than oak).

Drinking the Duvel with home-made Belgian fries: perfect!
