Well, Duvel is one of my favorites so trying this was a no brainer. It definitely grew on me as I drank it. At first it seemed a little weak on malt but by the end it tasted fine. Now I need to get an original Duvel to compare it.

33 cl bottle at home: turned into a back-to-back tasting with the 2012. Pours the same as most Duvels, so no surprises. Again, an older sample, so perhaps the aroma has faded. However, this example has a much lighter and less sticky base, the hopping is more perfumed and I would say is lighter, leaner and more refreshing than the 2012. Not better, just different. A nice, enjoyable beer.
