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.

Duvel is the standard by which American craft brewers attempt to replicate. Itís a classic Belgian Golden Strong Ale: potent, spicy with a typical fruity (particularly pear) flavor, and highly carbonated. I canít say much more without sounding like a smitten schoolgirl, but it holds its own with other great Belgians. A truly great beer.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - DEC 4, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2008 Full fluffy white head that leaves swaths of lacing and a golden color. Coriander, cob web, lemon, white pepper, and bread dough with a hop snap at the end to cut though the sweetness. Spicy with a lively mouthfeel. Finishes with sticky bready, grainy malts and a nice bitterness in the background.

Explosive and very dry - itís selzer water with chalk, angostura and a (very) little fruit juice added for flavor. Iím not a fan.

UPDATED: JAN 20, 2003 The head just wouldn't go away... Fruity with heavy citrus tones. Very nice ale, but there are cheaper American imitations (New Belgium tripple) that I think are better.

When I poured this I was amazed. I said to my self- "Is this clear". After pouring I noticed slight yellow coloring. It had a big head and smelled sour. Its was seet and slightly tangy. But good though

I have not had this beer in years. But I can still remember its taste. It is a great dinner beer. With a huge head and nice flavour.

The light color is deceiving. This beer is very flavorful. Be careful, it packs a punch! Very carbonated. Smooth, and you arenít really aware of the alcohol. Stellar taste. Makes a large head.
