UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Cloudy golden with a big and lasting white head. Spicy and fruity aroma with citrus and pine hops. Alcohol is noticed. Intense sweet and fruity flavours with lots of alcohol, some yeast and a faint oxidation.

A clear golden colored beer, with an enormously thick foamy white head. The aroma of spices with hops and fruits like citrus. The taste is fruity, citrus and orange. There are bitter hops with some spices. The aftertaste is dry with some sweets and it stays bitter for a while.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 14, 2009
Bottle sampled on 5/22/08: Pours a transparent bright golden with a full-lacing dense froth of white head. Aroma of lightly sweet pale and biscuity malts with a grassy spicy hop nose. Body starts fairly full with a soft carbonation and nice authentic Belgian yeastiness along with smooth sweet biscuity complexity and hop bitterness. Very well balanced and enjoyable.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAY 22, 2009
75cl bottle, thanks for bringing this along, Pat! Hazy golden, huge flyffy pale head w/ tight lacing. Pretty smoothly hopped, sweetish aroma, some citric fruitiness and grass. Flavor has bitter grassy hops, sweetness, little honey, alcohol, duvel yeast, strong peppery & citric bitterness. Medium to full bodied, strongly carbonated silky palate. Duvel with strongly different hopping, seemed surprisingly fresh after all.

Bottle shared at Mugs. Nice belgian character tippicle of Duvel. Nice spice and yeasty bread. Some very green and young taste like moss. A nice crisp finish with much hops at all.

berkshirejohn (5822) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2009
75cl bottle in a presentation box. Hazy straw coloured with a billowing white head; spicy, fruity aroma with raisins and some Belgian yeast; rich and buttery in the mouth; deeply bitter - particularly the head - warming finish with almond and apricot. Complex and enjoyable.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2009
750 bottle in nice box shared by YGTBSM94- thanks Brad! Pours a typical slight hazy gold with a nice fluffy white head. Slight vegetal and dms on the aroma some slight corn, yeasty phenolics and a grassy herbal and earthy hop character. Flavor semed still pretty doughy malty and yeasty with an ok hop presence but nothing over the top- seemed a bit grassy, cold dry hop stuff going on - ok moderate bitterness in the end. Overall I liked this, but I was expecting a bit more hops.

Bottle@Home. Citrus and light grassy aroma. Yellow colour, white firm head, good lace. Sweet, bitter, fruity, quite hoppy, floral. Warming and sticky mouth feel.

Ughsmash (7506) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2009
750mL bottle. Poured clear, bright lighter golden with a tall, creamy cap of white head.. left fine lacing as it descended. The aroma was very hoppy with floral and cat pee leading.. pale sweetness supported.. dusty yeast and light funk lingered in the nostrils. The flavor was spicy and bitter throughout with floral and dusty notes leading.. sweet, slightly sticky pale sweetness at the core.. more floral and lesser citrusy bitterness on the long finish. Heavier-bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. spicy and very hoppy.. quite well done, but the regular Duvel is a bit more approachable.

Courtesy TheCheeseMan. Bottled 08/01/2007, aged over one year. Pours a lightly hazy, yellowish golden color with a small, foamy, snow white head. Jagged, sugary lacing marks the glass, scant traces remaining behind to dry. The aroma shows heaps of grassy hops, with loads of lemon zest, estery orchard fruits, and bready yeast. Flavors follow suit, very zesty overall, with lemongrass bitterness, soft white fruits, and dry, distinctly Belgian yeast. Dry and peppery on the tongue, with fine, lively carbonation, the mouthfeel is almost like that of an active sparkling wine. This one is cut from a different mold, a hoppy, grassy mold that I really dig.
