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.

Great Belgian, a bit banana in it... very soft, sweet but not in a bad way. The only things that I complain are that it foams in your mouth, and also there could be more taste and thickness. But unlike Leffe, there’s not too much sweetness here. I think that the 0,33 l bottle is a somehow tempting (I think the round shapes tell something about the beer), but people that I offered the beer said it seems suspicious.

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

Beautifull Belgian Strong Ale. A great bready- hoppy aroma. And an uncomparable taste.

I gave this a 19 overall only because I like to think the perfect beer is still out there... somewhere. This comes close. This goes down in my book as the second best overall beer I’ve ever had. Everything about this beer was spot on.

floydslip (231) - Washington DC, USA - APR 10, 2015
Bright gold beer with a crackly white head. Pilsneresque nose of wet cardboard hops, some sour yeast, and light citrus and spice. Flavor is like the bastard child of a Belgian sour ale and a traditional pilsner with some sour apple and yeast flavors inevitably giving way to a dry, musky bitterness that lingers. Good hybrid beer.

wiedrzensky (142) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 10, 2015
Bottle. Cloudy golden with persistent medium white head. Aroma of malts, yeast, herbs, spices and some flowers, some coriander as well. Taste is light sweet followed by medium bitterness, spicy, coriandry. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation.

Strong aroma maintained throughout. Pale yellow, lively carbonation giving thick white head. Ting on tongue and mouth - maybe too fizzy for my taste.

Baalzevuv (68) - Essen, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 9, 2015
Bardzo duża piana, śnieżnobiała, grubsopęcherzykowa. Opada szybko. Barwa słomkowa wpadająca w żółtą. Piwo jednolicie zmętnione. Zmętnienie delikatne. Aromat lekko owocowy, trawiasty, czuć też alkohol. W smaku lekko chlebowy i mocno chmielowy. Przebija alkohol. Goryczka jest wyraźna, niezalegająca. Naprawdę, coś pysznego.
