Perfection in a Belgian Ale. Nice arome, no aftertaste or bitterness. Definately worthy of a high rank.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 duvel is great! had this a lot in belgium and it was always good. a nice, rich golden color with a very white, huge head. heavy release of gasses and a creamy/active mouthfeel, and a nice, but slightly tart and plum-like aroma. crisp taste, with a hint of alcohol. nice a fruity and almost well balanced with a bit of citrus too.

What to say... This is certainly the best beer in Belgium. the only drawback is, that you can only drink so much. After 10 of these youíll start singing, if not earlier ;)

Pours a pale/medium yellow with lots of bubbles and a huge head that lasts a long time. Very smooth, strong, surprisingly deep considering the pilsner-like color, with little aftertaste. Though I often prefer darker Belgian ales, this one is a keeper.

Yellow, nice head. Aroma from wheat and yeast. Flavor brings boiled vegetables, some perfume. Bitter finish.

I know that this stuff is a classic, and it has taken me long enough to rate it, but I have given this stuff loads of chances. And I like it, donít get me wrong, but it is not great. This is one of the few times that I am rating a beer less than its average. All that said, nice an pillowy, with a thin Belgian character. Quaffable. Better than an average brew.

This is one hell of a brew.Wonderful golden color with a nice foamy head that left heavy lacing all the way down.The carbonation was almost champagne -like. A subtley spicy aroma and flavor, with hints of banana and clove.Full-bodied and extremely smooth.II know Iíll be buying more of this very soon.A totally great , fun ,and enjoyable brew.

I guess this is not my style of beer. The palate is strong and alcoholic, color is dark amber. Medium lasting head.

This beer is there to be drunk whenever you want. But as a Strong Ale itís best to stop after a while... Because itís too good to waste when people are drunk! Then take something else!!

Compact and friabile, little creamy foam. Good persistence. Yellow color much limpid one and little fizzy. Intense and strong aroma. Wine and flavor of malt, fizzy in the end. A lot balanced.
