Perhaps I'm being too fussy about the clarity.  According to the BJCP guidelines it should have "good clarity" as opposed to some other styles "very clear," "brillantly clear" or even just "clear." I guess "good" is just a subjective term anyway when it comes to judging.

It just seems a bit odd I have to bottle it to get the clarity to even a "good" level and in the keg it won't seem to clear at all.  I wonder if carbonating right away after kegging rather than letting the yeast settle out for several weeks makes a difference?

And I drank four Duvel's last week and I couldn't claim they were very bright. It's a slightly hazy beer as it is.

??? looks rather clear to my eyes

Oh well. Not my experience at all. Not once. Nice pic though. I feel snacky. ;)

I was wondering about this. Mine have always been served cooled to the mid 40's, and I've always assumed there's a slight chill-haze. I didn't see any condensation on your two glasses there, so was wondering if they were poured closer to room temp. :)

The pic was taken outside -mid 40s @ in Belgium so....  ;)

I bet your seeing chill haze.
