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.

Bloody hell. Massive head that stuck about and looked like beaten egg white. The colour is healthy urine and the taste is not. Rather the taste is quite good, in fact a very lovely taste. Sad that I only got one bottle from the store (Amatos in Leichhart) because I could stick on this shit all night: not a "tasters" beer but a drinking one. Awesome.

Superb served ice cold like a cross between a wheat beer and a pilsner pours with s large frothy head and cloudly straw smells of playdo and bready yeast was expecting a wheat beer taste its similar bu t a lot crisper and cleaner really works.

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.

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.
