Very expensive when bought from Sainsburys as a Christmas treat. Poured with a big head which never seemed to disappear so you felt like were drinking through a snowball. Golden hoppy and bitter but not worth the extravagant price.

75 cL bottle, Kerstbierfestival 2007 in Essen/Belgium. Pours hazy yellow with a dense white head. Aroma is mild peach fruity and citrus fruity in general. Sweet fruity hops flavour with a solid malt base and some fruity note lingering on top. Finish is mellow to sweet not so bitter as such. Nice brew but tastes a bit like a down watered Struise-Mikkeller brew. Not bad but somehow Belgian yeast and american hops just don’t go well together.

Fin (8540) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2007
Bottle picked up from Kidlington Sainsbury’s had this 23-12-07 Pours hazy golden with the usual Duvel huge cushion of foam, wonderful yeasty spiciness on the nose, some hops and touch of citrus. The taste is also spicy yeasty treat but this is definately somewhat more refined than your average Duvel, really fresh some satsuma’s or clementine peel flavours jiggling around with the more usual suspects one would expect to find. This is certainly hoppy but nowhere near as much as I expected, still it is a bloody marvellous beer.

Thanks a lot Mike. Hazy golden pour, huge gusher of a white head. Aroma is a spicy triple like aroma with some honey and phenolic yeast. Flavor is honey and belgian yeast, spicy and phenolic with light fruits. Not bad at all but not a lot going on.

Bottled. Golden coloured. Unclear. Dense off white head. Yeast, sweetness, spice and herbs in the aroma. Flavour is sweet and spiced. Has some herbal and citric notes. Alcohol is notable. Meidum bodied. Alcohol warmth in the end, which is dominated by a sweet and spicy bitterness. Quite nice.

Pours cloudy with large white head. The aroma presents more hops than normal duvel. The flavor is nice balance between fruit and bitterness. Tasting provider from the manager of the Devonshire Cat. Thanks,

Grovlam (4170) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2007
Bottle. [Another great tasting session @ Papsoe] Huge thick bubbly off-white head that mostly lasted. Excellent lacework. Light cloudy sparkling body with a pale golden color. Aroma of classic Duvel with soft notes of hops. Spice, yeast, light fruit, citrus and light grassy and floral notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated sweet flavor with a counter bitterness. Light dry and bitter finish. 7 / 4 / 7 / 3 / 15

Bottled. Yellowish golden colour with small white had. Aroma is caramel, fruits and some yeast. Flavour is fruity, hoppy and slightly caramelly. Also the alcohol gives a slight sweetness to it. Not very much hops kicking in, except for some mild fruity notes.
