Maybe this bottle was bad, but I didn’t have a good experience with this one. Bitter and tart beer. It smells like a pilsner of Budweiser qualtiy - corn and rice. This beer is not a good representation of a BSA, and it is terribly light.

Icedwarf (331) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2014
Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is minder dan de gewone Duvel, wel bitter maar minder uitgebalanceerd met sporen van appel. Blijft ook minder lang hangen.

Alengrin (1743) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
The ’small Duvel’, pasteurized, lighter version of the real thing. Golden blonde like its big brother with a frothy, snow white head; fruity, malt sweetness, grassy hops, smooth and sufficiently full mouthfeel. Not that bad but I never understood its purpose, why downtuning a great beer to a totally redundant, mediocre version to put against it??

UXO (211) - CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Pours a clear pale yellow with a short white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. Nose is apples and pears, yeast, bready malt. Taste is light and sweet, with a mild bitter finish. Mouth feel is light, tending to the watery, with sustained prickly carbonation.

ruigo (1117) - PORTUGAL - AUG 13, 2014
25cl bottle. Clear pale yellow colour with a small white head. Yeast, pear, citrus and malts in the aroma. Average carbonation and light to medium carbonation. Taste is quite watery and light. Overall, a regular beer with nothing special except the 7% ABV.

mikske79 (1242) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 7, 2014
Maar een middelmatig biertje, dan is de gewone duvel een stuk beter van smaak.

allmyvinyl (3371) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 5, 2014
250ml bottle grim Beers of Europe. Pours clear pale yellow, pillowy white head. Aromas of fresh cut pear, yeast, white bread. Taste is sweet, more apple notes than pear. Slightly acidic. Finishes a bit cloying, but not bad.

TtV (71) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2014
Veel koolzuur op de tong, maar toch minder levendig in het glas dan de standaard Duvel. Smaak is wat vlak. Volgende keer weer de gewone Duvel.

Maakun (594) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2014
Clear light golden with medium white head. Light apple, pear, and some citrus, light malts. Some yeast but not nearly as much as regular Duvel. Taste is light sweet, with trat fruits and medium bitter finish. Medium bodied with slightly prockly carbonation. Nice beer.

freretoc (700) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 28, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 25cl, une bière très blonde et une mousse qui tombe bvite, un peu moins houblonnée qe l’originale elle est assez malté très attaque sur le blé... Agréable
