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.

Highly carbonated. Taste like Pilner on steroid. A good hot summer night drink. Yeasty with banana peel. Not bad, but not worth the premium.

Clovy, fruity and yeast aroma, pale golden colour, big lasting porous off-white head, medium body, high refreshing carbonation, sweet malty taste, spicy palate. Nice one.

Duvel, mmm very aromatic. Light beer. Some champagne taste and after tastes. Good beer in overall but not my preference. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330ml bottle. Hazy pale yellow colour with decent foamy white head. Yeast, spices and fruits in the aroma. Same for the flavour. Very drinkable!

Blind geproefd. Troebel, heel wit. Dik schuim. Ruikt naar Hoegaarden, koriander dus. Smaakt wat voller dan een wit, maar wat is het dan?

Banana, wheat, yeast, lemon, orange, clove.

Yellow/gold beer with a large white head.

Refreshingly sweet, spicy finish. Drinks so easily and tastes almost like a weißen.

elosop (220) - SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2015
Ljusgul, smått dimmig med vit fin krona. Doftar kryddigt, lite citrus och banan. Smaken syrlig och frisk, något alkoholanstruken. Lite för mkt kolsyra. Bättre på fat?

Although Belgian ales aren’t my favorite styles (or the least pleasing me, either), it is easy to realize that Duvel is a great, great beer. Simply it feels the dedication it took to produce it. You have to try. In my Top5 so far. A pesar de que los estilos ales belgas no son mis favoritas (ni las que menos me gustan, tampoco), es fácil notar que Duvel es un gran, gran cerveza. Sencillamente se siente la dedicación que se tomaron en elaborarla. Hay que probarla. En mi Top5 hasta ahora.

Hołd blond po prostu mi nie smakuje. Zbyt wytrawne. Z kolei prezencja jest rewelacyjna. Ogrom piany z pięknym zdobieniem szkla ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nogva (61) - NORWAY - OCT 3, 2015
Pours pale and clear yellow with a white head. Malty aroma of banana, yeast and herbs. Medium body, thick feel, fizzy carbonation. Taste of lemon zest, grass and some caramel. Long finish with hop resin and lingering alchohol.

Bottle. BB 03/17 8 srm, close to pale yellow, clear. Skunky like a Heineken, pils malt, stinky piss, wort stained brewery floors, fresh cut grass. Some baby diaper funk. Melon, honeydew esters. Boozy, skunky. Must be an off bottle. This is nothing special. Will try again.
