Cloudy yellow with a big fluffy head. Aroma is very fruity and citric. Flavor is fruity, spicey, and citric. Very enjoyable beer. I know a great pub in New York that serves this beer and it's always a treat!

Very few brews can hold up to 8.5% and still deliver the flavour. This is one of them. A classic top fermented ale that is a true golden gem. Subtle on the hops and malt suggest this is a fine brew. You won't be disappointed.

Full of fruits in the nose. Big white firm head. Sweet-sour in the beginning, but keep it for a year or two it will get drier. Dry bitterness in the end.

This beer is yellow with a large white head. -Be careful pouring this one into a normal pint glass because the foam can get out of hand - I made this mistake and even with a decent pour, I had tons and tons of head. This beer has a great taste from first to last drink and it has a slight hint of citrus beneath the slightly bitter taste. Highly recommended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 Yellow colour. Huge head, very creamy and persistent. Hints of citrus in the nose. The flavour is sour, spicy and yeasty with fruity (citrus and peach) notes. The finish is quite alcoholic and bitter. A good Belgian strong.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The classic "Belgian blonde" in coloration--yellow with a white head--nose--coriander and funky yeast--and flavor--slightly sweet malt with a peppery, coriander spice tone and a touch of bitterness. A little to hot/spicy for my taste.

A great taste from beginning to end. Hints of citrus tickle dance on your taste buds as the carbonation lifts you away.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2003 The duvel is very nice and hides the alcahol very well. It is a bit on the heavy side though. A Belgian classic
