look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a pale golden color, semi hazy. Incredibly thick and foamy head that nearly billows out of the tulip. Head has excellent retention leaving lot of lacing and one of the better caps I've ever seen. It looks almost like a dollop of shaving cream.

S: Has a sweet, but slightly tart smell. Pale malts, lemon, pepper and yeasty.

T: Delicious. The sweet malts are what I notice first, followed by bready, spicy yeast and finishes with the tart lemon, orange. Hardly any hint of alcohol.

M: Thick, almost creamy. Semi-dry.

O: Class. Duvel is really, really good and highly drinkable. I haven't had many examples of this style, but this makes me want to seek out more. Glad I have three more of these in the fridge.
