BB 1 June 2010.
Shady yellow color, big fluffy and rocky lasting white head. It actually lasts long after I’ve had water out of the glass several times. Spicy, hoppy and floral fruity scent. Big sweet and bitter taste, spicy bitter an dlots of alcohol as well. Smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness. Alcohol aftertaste. If the noticeable alcohol was less I’d like it even more.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 17, 2008
Bottled. Pours out in an almost clear golden colour with a rich pillowy white foam. Big yeasty aroma of oranges and banana with touches of white pepper, grass and orange-peels. Full flavour of yeast, orange-peels, mild banana, paint, alcohol, grass and almonds. Full but still crispy mouthfeel. Long medium bitter finish of orange-peels, pepper, alcohol, banana, vanilla yeast and nectarines. Quite nice...but...what a hype! I would choose Struise Mikkeller or La Chouffe Houblon over this anytime.

Bottle generously "trade" to me by MikeTD. Light grassy hops in the aroma with some yeast and green apples. Light golden brown body with a full white head. Full palate with above average carbonation. Yeasty flavor with plenty of earthy hops. Nice balance.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle, cgarvieuk’s coolbeans party. Thanks to Fin. Clear yellow gold, thin off-white head. Nose is quite crisp lemongrass and peach. Mouth is quite carbonated, sweet peachy / nectarine taste. Feels amazing in the mouth, sweet fruitiness eternally present. Lasts almost champagney in the mouth, definitely have this again.

Bottle huge thanks to cgarvieuk, via fin at cgarvieuk’s banter party jig. Aroma is peachy, citrus, clear notes of saaz and peppery alcohol. Taste is similar orange peel and spice with peach, peppery finish off the alcohol. Very nice.

thebeertourist (4814) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2008
75 cl bottle. Poured a huge white head above the hazy golden beer. The head left beautiful lacework. Complex hop aroma- at first the floral traits of Amarillo hits the nose, later more spicy and peppery aromas. Alcohol is there, too. Flavours balance the sweet base with good, complex hop bitterness. Pepper and fruit, which hints of orange, is the main impression, but also some yeastiness. Impressive.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Bottle shared by moejuck via MikeTD: Pours a hazy gold with a medium sized white head. Aroma, floral and spicy hops, yeasty, and peppery. Flavor, pepper, spices and floral notes, some decent bitterness. Pretty good stuff. But I do tend to like these hoppy tripels that keep coming out, it’s a nice trend.

Yves (2231) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Clear blond coloured beer, large white head, lots of carbonation. Hoppy aroma, finish is dry, bitter and alcoholic. Nice to taste it, but let’s keep it to the regular Duvel. 2010 verion: Poored out with the yeast. So hazy bond coloured beer with medium white hed and no carbonation visible. Soft hoppy herby aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is bitter ending very dry. Nice combination of 3 different hops. A less strong finish than the regular Duvel. I liked it, better than previous version.
