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.

330ml bottle, chilled, poured into a snifter (no Duvel glassware yet). Aroma was yeasty and dry with a little citrus - nothing overwhelming. Appearance is simply amazing. Pale straw yellow with a lot of nice white head. The lacing is something that has to be experienced. Tastes spicy and citrusy with the slightest amount of sour. Incredibly refreshing. Palate is surprisingly light. It has the perfect amount of carbonation with a quick dry finish. Overall, this is just an amazing beer. If I could only have one more beer, it would be a Duvel.

gegwilson (1782) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Bottle in a Saltburn Café.ours a hazy straw colour with a big white frothy head. Sharp citrus and spice flavour with some bready yeast notes in the finish. High carbonation gives a full mouth feel. Good.

Not my favorite of the Duvels. Still an above average beer. A little light but the abv kicks in at the end. The Blue is better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LeandroBibi (30) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - APR 23, 2015
Cerveja dourada de pouca espuma. Aromas frutados e herbais complexos, mas bem equilibrados. No paladar, pouco amargor e o álcool pode ser notado, mas também com bastante. Retrogosto prolongado e delicioso.

17Beer (87) - SWITZERLAND - APR 21, 2015
Strong yeast and wheat smells. Pours a pale gold with a rocky white head. Round well balanced well carbonated mouthfeel. Hard to tell its 8.5% because of its polish. Lingering sour finish. Refined for a strong ale.

gregerik (13) - Kings Lynn, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2015
Klasyczne piwo. Duvel to klasa sama dla siebie. Świetnie zbalansowane, piękna piana, dobre zarówno schłodzone jak i w wyższych temperaturach. Jest w nim prostota i czystość pilzneńskiego słodu i kompleksowość belgijskich drożdży. Świetne.

듀벨(브린동ȕ 푸어스) 8.5% ABV 바이스맥주에 호가든이 있다면, 벨지언에일에&# 듀벨이 있다. 벨지언 스트롱 에일의 베스트 셀러. 강하고 단 에일이지만 가볍고 날렵한 향 https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot
