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.

Scrumpy369 (389) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 10, 2016
Bottle at home. Hazy yellow colour with a longlasting white head. Nose is grassy, zesty. Taste is also grassy less zest. Dry and refreshing. This is the beer that got me into craft, and I love it ever since. Thx Krepo.

hallinghansen (2750) - Odense SV, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2016
Bottle in Belgium. Clear yellow body with a large white head. Light hops, yeasty notes, alcohol notes. I had it after a ten hour drive, so it was very needed.

For the price I had to pay for this one it was a disappointment, had a metallic flavor a bit skunky.

ectuohy27 (996) - ESTONIA - MAY 1, 2016
A Belgian classic for a reason--ok, it’s a bit rough and hoppy, but that adds complexity. otherwise a rich brew of lemon zest and lively yeast

Arseniq33 (62) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2016
D’une bouteille à une tulipe. La bière est dorée et trouble, avec un large col blanc et mousseux. Il est possible de voir la forte carbonatation. Au nez, classique belge : bananes, poivre, citron, céréales, levure. En bouche, la même chose. L’acidité du citron laisse cependant place à un goût beaucoup plus mielleux. La carbonatation est très forte, et la finale très sèche.

allanmb (150) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2016
Pours light golden with aggressive head and very clear. Aromas of belgian yeast, biscuit, pepper and hint of banana. High carbonation and good mouth feel. Taste is of bitter hops with good malt balance and spice. Belgian yeast after taste with slight alcohol burn.

OMG! I’ve had Duvel plenty of times in the past, but not had one for a while, Hail Mary it’s good stuff, golden loveliness with fluffy pure white head, gives a soft full flavour very moreish , entices you in through its golden gates
