3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Almost killed my friend when I popped the bottle. Anyways, poured a golden color with an enormous frothy head, too big to drink out of. Sweet, yeasty, carbonated smell, pretty carbonated, with a sweet yeasty taste. Pretty unique stuff. Just finished and my entire glass is laced white as if it were covered in snow. Enjoyed it with both discerning friends and good-looking strangers.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A really nice Belgian, this one poured from the bottle with a beautiful thick white head. Nice golden color and the head remained throughout the drinking. Aroma was sweet and a tad yeasty with a touch of honey. Flavor was similar, typical Belgian sweetness but a somewhat sharp finish. Somewhat champagne-like, as others have mentioned, and the alcohol was noticeable in the aftertaste. Expensive, but a nice treat.

Pours bright yellow with big white head. Foam very hoppy and tasty. Malty taste. Some citrus too. Very fresh, I like it.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma of carbonation! and hop. Maybe some citrus; maybe honey? Refreshing and clean. Hazy golden color. Flavor of alcohol and yeast. Tiny bubbles on the top of the tongue. Starts sweet, but a nicely astringent hop finish. It’s not sweetly complex like a number of belgians - must be the pilsner malt.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330 ml bottle. Thick white head, I mean thick thick thick. Long lasting as well. Nice flavor, and while 8.5, it doesn’t seem too strong.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The aroma is nice, floral. Appreance is a very heady hazy straw. Lots of visibale carbonation. Palate is very smooth with a fizzy finish. Flavor is warming. Detect alcohol and slight metalic finish, which does not detract i this case as with some brews. Overall, a very impressive beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very intensely flavoured blond ale with plenty of hoppiness and yeast on the tongue. The head was mildy creamy and carbonation about average for Belgian style which is more than most beers.

bottle poured into a chimay chalice. It poured with a foamy white head that reached an inch above the rim of the glass. The smell is of belgian yeast, green apple, and citrusy hops. I think that this is the hoppiest belgian that I have had so far. There was a very pleasant carbonation that added a bite to this unique belgian brew. Duvel was an enjoyable beer experience.
