UPDATED: JUN 17, 2014 Mooi lichtgeel kleurtje, heerlijk fruitig aroma. Geuren van bessen, citrus. Prachtige balans tussen fruitig en het bittere van de hop. (Veel) lekkerder dan een gewone duvel.

Pours crystal clear golden yellow with a large white head. The aroma has lots of sweet candy malt, spicy hops, tangerine, mint, fruit juice, cream and dark berries. It has a medium body that’s very crisp and has lots of carbonation. The flavor starts off with spicy hops, citrus, sulfur, semi-sweet malt and some alcohol. The finish has more alcohol heat and lots of sweet maltiness - it is still hop heavy overall. Nice twist on Duvel.

Vignale (1994) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2014
Flaska från bier-deluxe. Gyllenfärgad, stort vitt bestående skum. Fin humledoft med gröna dofter av krusbär, kiwi, rabarber, pomelo, gröna druvor, gräs. Småbubblig i munnen lätt men söt kropp med lite alkohol som slår igeonom och krockar lite med humlen som får lite acetonig och tvålig smak. Relativt stor beska och en eftersmak av krusbär, grön citrusbeska och nässlor. Funkar ändå riktigt bra.

grass, citrus, herbs, golden, hazy, white foam, light sweetness, lightly sour, light body, fizzy, astringent. Absolutely beautiful when poured, golden yellow with a perfectly white head that lingers seemingly forever. Wonderful fruity aroma. Crisp taste and fizzy carbonation. A bit boozy but works well with everything else. Very surprised at how delectable this is.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 09/2016
Aroma has hops, gooseberry bush, grapefruit and some soapy fruits. Foamy palate. Flavour has lots of grapefruit, some grass, soapy citrus and gooseberry bush. Alcohol is present but does not disturb much. Quite nice actually, perhaps even better with lower ABV.

Andy_ (639) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
White golden beer with frothy white head. Aroma and flavor have crisp citrus, tart Belgian yeast, grassy hops and toffeey sweetness. Palate is thick with high carbonation. Finish has heavy bitterness with lots of alcohol. The alcohol ruins this. The hops don’t get enough space. I’ve had good and bad Duvels and this reminds me of the bad ones.
