3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very Good. The bottle has plenty of sediment kicking around in it. Pours a Golden Yellow Colour with a white fluffy head that lasts ages. This is a strong beer and it tastes like one. Very yeasty with little bitterness and an ever so slightly sour aftertaste.

One of the best of the Belgians and there are a lot of excellent Belgians! Big, creamy, long lasting white head. Very appealing color & aroma.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Sports Cafe, Amsterdam. The only thing worth drinking in this bland establishment, which just happened to still be open at 1.30 on a Sunday. Creamy, hardened wheat flavour. Nice colour and great head. Flavour is beguiling and easy to swig. Solid and smooth.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 A belgian tripel. blond/golden in its appearence with a huge white head which could have been a pilsener head. Much stronger than the average pilsener though. dont let the colour of the beer fool you. Duvel means Devil and is has 8,5 in alcohol. A great simple and easy drinkable tripel. One of the better commercialized beers in Belgium! Hahahah - Classic rate. Too much alcohol, straw, grains and malts. Its a bit rough overall. 3,9-3,5

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2008 What a head! Itís like melted marshmallows. A great looking beer.
A watery golden beer with a little maltiness and honey. Almost as sweet as a triple. Not overwhelmingly delicious, but it proves quality can be somewhat mass produced!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2006 330ml bottle. Poured a gorgeous honey-gold with a large, white, moderately diminishing head. Aroma is pleasant and clean: slightly citrusy hops with a suggestion of honey and champagne. Flavor is somewhat less citric hops very well balanced with slightly sweet malt, overall reminiscent of champagne again. Very easy to drink with light to medium body and a crisp, watery texture. Excellent use of lively carbonation. The high alcohol content becomes apparent (though not offensively so) if allowed to warm in the mouth. An excellent refresher.

Light, barely pale, golden body; loads of lively bubbles; and a monstrous, frothy, white head that doesnít quit for hours. In my opinion, the serving recommendation (40-50 degrees Fahrenheit) is bogus; the aroma doesnít even begin to open up until it is significantly warmer than that. Aroma becomes more aggressive as the beer warms; itís medium in strength, nonetheless; very interesting yeasty nose, not entirely like anything I can recall having before; there is some of the typical Belgian clove and banana, but there is something else thatís subtle but I donít know the words to describe it. Flavor also shows the strange, yeasty characteristic, in addition to some nice, bready malts, pleasant but mild sharp sweetness; the alcohol is nearly undetectable but beautifully present in a very light warmth in the swallow; tremendously well balanced, light, hoppy finish. Medium-thin body; extremely frothy in the mouth; bubbles up profusely in the mouth. Wow--I didnít even begin to "get" this beer until I sat down with the last 4 ounces to rate it; I planned to write about how overrated it is, but this one really snuck up on me. Very nice.
