COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Four generations of the Moortgat family have brought together Pilsner malts, Bohemian hops, and a unique yeast strain to create this intense, aromatic and beguiling ale. This Belgian favourite is best enjoyed chilled (40 - 50 F) with discerning friends or good-looking strangers.

Big foamy head that last long. Very pale yellow color. It smells very sugary, with hints of coriander and clove. Flowers and prunes too. Citric flavor, with spices, coriander and fruits in the mouth. Bready and flowery. Very complex.

Fruity and spicy aroma, with hints of spirits. Beautiful golden apperance, especially when served in the proper glass. Very nice on the palate, with complex aftertaste. A huge head that doesn’t quit, almost to the point of annoyance. Note that this is a strong ale, although the high alcohol contents are not readily distuingishable when served at the proper temprature (well chilled). Definately my favorite ale.

I think this is a great beer. Fruity and hoppy aroma. A big head that lasts. Good carbonation that also lasts for a surprisingly long time. Another great thing about this one is that you can enjoy it at almost all temperatures. when cold its very refreshing. When temperated the flavor kicks in. So take your time drinking this beer.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2007 Lysgul øl med helt hvidt skum Købt i Luxembourg på fad og flaske. Smagen er kraftig som en Blond. Både bitter, sød, varm, letsur og tung på en gang. Meget humlet af en belgier, og ikke så meget gær smag. Duft:frugtagtig, og sød og let humlet

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2006 What can I say about this beer, except that it is fine. The only bad thing about it, I have to go to New Orleans, I can’t get it in Mississippi because of good ole boy redneck politics...

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2006
Bottle, 8.5% a/v Massive foamy head. With a well carbonated, somewhat cloudy golden body. Smells somewhat fruity with a tinge of hops. The taste is strange for a golden beer, very fruity and sweet with a peppery aftertaste. Very intriguing. Not a bad beer whatsoever for what it cost. Ill be getting this one again!

It is entirely easy to forget about this beer because it’s virtually available everywhere. And while I’ve completely forgotten I’ve had it, I recently tried it again and it’s STILL a fantastic beer. Incredible aroma of fruits, doughy yeast, grass, malt and peppers. WOW! Appearance is, like the photo, yellow in color, some carbonation and huge head. Mouthfeel is full yet still somehow light. Flavors were green grapes, sweet tropical fruits, pepper, yeast and malt. An excellent beer and an excellent brewery. Duvel can usually be found most everywhere so grab one and share it with someone who’d like great beer.

Light, clear and fizzy. Thick, loose head which laces. Sweet medium body. A bit of wheat flavor in the finish. The alcohol is only present when warming.
