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.

well, i almost feel bad rating this beer since there are currently 666 ratings and i will make the 667th rating of the devil, but anyway: slightly orangish golden color with nice foamy white head with good retention. light on the palate with a nice sharp bite. fruit--some apple and grapefruit. very bubbly. enjoyable

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2004 330ml Bottle. A nice beer. Golden coloured, with a massive fluffy white head. Spicy, fruity taste. Fairly carbonated. Yeasty. Fairly big alcohol kick.

Ah , the devil Duvel. The right amount of yeasty goodness for this type of ale. Got the free glass with the four pack so that was a plus!

Rich yellow color with an immaculate white head which persisted for a while. Definitely catch the aroma of alcohol in this one, as well as a biting alcohol aftertaste. Considering the alcohol content (which became quickly apparent) It went down easy and I’d drink it again. Overpriced for sure, though.

Bottle. a lovely pour hazy dark yellow with a fat fluffy white head.This keeps a constant stream of bubbles floating up from the base of my glass. yeasty grape aroma.very strong taste, very earthy with a biting citrus that i can’t put a name to. sweet slightly alcoholic finish. this is very warming and it gets on top of me quickly.

Poured an expansive head with Brussels lacing in evidence. Continued carbonation stream thru the finish. Light yellow golden color for an ale. Softer less complex than other Belgian strong ales. Unique bottle. Quite good though I prefer the Chimay line.

My little bottle poured out a very pale yellow that lasted with a one finger white head that lasted all the way to the final sip. I think this is made with a lot of wheat. It has a very dry spicy flavour with hints of citrus. The alcohol warms nicely on the finish.

Sample taken from 330ml brown bottle. Pale yellow in colour, cloudy. Huge whipped cream like head which threatens to take over the glass. Constant vigorous stream of bubbles streaming from the bottom of the glass. Aroma is on the sweet side containing alcohol and wheat and yeast. Alcohol is definatly detectable throughout, finishes bitter with a sour twang.

bottled. poured very aggrassively with mountain of head. not a problem as i like to leave my bottled beers settle for a while to calm the ’fizz’ down. nose was rather fruity but somewhat alcoholic. good hop citrus taste with a hint of good bitternessbut aftertaste was too alcoholic for my taste. My first Belgium bottled ale and not a bad impression.
