Launched 1982 by Jef Keersmaekers as Pater Noster. Brewed by Brasserie Du Bocq since launch.
Ingredients: Caramel, Pilsen and Munich barley malts, and Saaz, Kent and Hallertau hops
Brewed with roasted malt, hence its deep dark reddish colour. It is a mellow, dark, top-fermented beer, refermented and matured in the bottle to obtain a lively, bubbly beer with a rich head

mmmm good. Pours red tinted with brown with a hwite head. Aroma of fruit and malts. The taste is a subtle blend of spices, carmel and plums? maybe. Very good.

Another winner from Corsendonk. Pours deep amber, with a big head that lasts longer than the smell on your fingers after you give your wife a shocker. Aroma of malt, toffee, dark fruit, and slight spice. Tastes rich, complex, well balanced, with a nice dark fruit presence and a slight rauchy finish. Bravo!

Crockett (1039) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2004
Pours red with a lasting big rocky off white head. Musty malt aroma. Bittersweet caramel and lemon. Itís a really intersesting version of sweet and sour. Biscuity, fruit spice. A little cheese funk, smoke and salt. Dry finish. Very tastey.

Balanced malt, carmel and orange and spot of chocolate and fig and spicy and tangy cherry, and raisin. Very drinkable. Soft spice, easy yeast. Medium mouthfeel. Good with fish.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2005 Deep brown pour, sizable head. Yeasty, Belgian aroma. Oh yeah. I get the impression itís going to be a bit dry. Not sure how to describe it. Body is quite carbonated, not overly by any means, though. Flavor is good, unique for sure. I donít really know how Iíd explain it, perhaps fruity and a hint of dark malt.

Brown color with a very thick, creamy head. Aroma and flavor of fruits, malt, alcohol and caramel. Medium to full body, slightly creamy texture.

XXL tan head thats climbing out of my glass, long lasting, rocky, a little much. Clear brown color. Nice malty nose, fruit, laced with co2 though. Medium body, prickly. Flavorful maltiness,caramel, yeasty, dark fruits with a hint of chocolate. Finish is dry, quick. Whats with the over carbonation?

duvel tulip glass / aroma: sugary, fruity... yes, i suppose itís smoky but thatís just because i read the commercial deScription... of course belgians seem to always have at least a little note of yeast anywhere... appearance: really dark but the body is clear; copper with reddish orange highlight. big and very light tan head; fizzy, sparkly, and it diminishes slowly into a rocky and airy topping but eventually thereís just random thick lacing with only a ring around the glass. flavor: lightly fruity, caramel. interesting balance among sweet, sour, salt, and bitter. i sense licorice, as if this is a root beer! palate: lively and smooth. overall: it would all be smooth and laidback hadnít the palate be so lively, but itís goood; interesting shit! let this puppy warm because i cannot bare it when itís cold.

I thought this beer smelled and looked fantastic. Iím not really sure what I was expecting tastewise - I suppose a combination of a Belgian and a Brown. What I got was a strange-tasting beer that I canít really say I liked all that much. It just tasted like something was wrong with it, but I couldnít point to any one thing.

Very nice looking brown with huge Duvel-esque head. Smells dusty, with sweet and sour coming through. Some Charcoal and smoke, old hops. Chocolate is there too. Now, on my first taste, I was caught way off gard. Tastes like Bretts and a little sugar. Second sip tastes like apple juice, some sour grapes, grape juice? This is one weirdass beer. Sweet and sour, totally caught me off guard, Iím not sure how much the taste is pleasing me... At least itís smooth across my palate with a little warming in my tummy. Weird, to say the least...
