Nnudd (69) - Helsinge, - SEP 18, 2008
Bottle.Pours with a nice impressive "Duvel" off-white, thick lasting head. Aroma is typical Belgian blond ale, and floral. Taste is also like the typical Belgian Blond Ale style. Is a little lemon-bitter and freschhh and with a touch of dryness in the end. Nice mouthfeel and creamish. Good allround beer

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2014
Stubby bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip. ABV 6.5% Funny label, expensive for a belgian. Deep golden yellow colour on the body, tall white head, white in colour, froathy, with low retention, leaving spots of lacing around the glass. Aroma of malts, yeast, sugar, a bit of straw. Taste of yeast, sugar, light fruity notes, light alcohol, mildl bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, okay carbonation. Good dryness on the palate. Overall okay,nothing impressive but it drinks good.

diabel (1603) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2012
Frothy off-white head. Hazy yellow body. Not very attractive judging on the looks. Aroma of orange and light malts. Fresh moderately bitter flavour with a sweet touch/off-flavour. The touch of oranges in the nose continues in the flavour. Bit unbalanced.

tderoeck (4371) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 10, 2010
9/11/2010 - 33cl bottle @ home

Pours a pretty clouded orange golden beer, creamy frothy white adhesive head. Aroma holds fruits, bubble gum, sweet malts and a yeast note reminding of cheese. MF: a touch to much carbon at first, this gets better if you wait a little. Medium body. Taste is refreshingly bitter, some toasted malts, fruity, spices. Aftertaste has hop bitters, some citrus and pepper.

Note: This beer got definitely better while warming up! Serve at 8 rather than 6 °C!

thornecb (4291) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Filled an entire Duvel tulip with a bright white head...glad I had the glass and a stopper for the bottle ready. A bright gold body gradually begins to grow while the head continues to meringue and top hat. Lemon and grass aromas. This is taking a while. Astringent sourdough upfront turning to a with a sweet malt middle and a lasting apple burn.
