Sexy, decadent, creamy love...enough said.

Well apparently not enough said., I'm prompted to at least give 250 characters in my review or it is not valid...

Sexy, decadent, creamy love...poured from an eleven point two ounce bottle...enough said!

Duvel pours a clear light gold into the glass with a moderate fizzy head on top. The long lasting foam leaves lines and spots of lace on the glass. A steady stream of bubbles rise to the surface from the bottom of my tulip glass.

The aroma is fruity with notes of apple and pear. yeastty bread, light spice and grass are also present.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is soft and pillowy with strong carbonation. The flavor is much like the aroma, fruity with bready malt. It begins with light fruit flavors of apple and pear. Quickly, spicy notes of white pepper or rye blend with some wheat. It finishes with some grassy bitterness and a little tartness. Once gone the apple and spice lingers on the palate.

This is a delicious beer with each sip. Flavors blend perfectly together. Drink it fresh.
