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.

Pours golden yellow with thick frothy head. Malt, yeast, and a slight hop aroma. Yeast and malt flavor with hits of hops. Lots of carbonation and a light body. Clean finish.

Duvel is tradition in my family, there aint no day without at least one Duvel to drink for them. Because of that, it’s actually kind of a shame for me that I waited so long to rate this beer, but here it finally comes; Kinda sweet, soft aroma, malty and fresh (maybe some lemongrass). Little bitterness, very accessible.

Flaska från SB. Blek, lätt grumlig ljus- gul färg. Tilltagen kolsyra med stor vit luftig skumkrona. Frisk doft av citrus, skumbanan och jäst. Frisk medelfyllig kropp. Söt smak av skumbanan och citrus. Avrundas av besk eftersmak, grapefrukt.

Sebilinz (641) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle. Golden Body with White head. Very fruity arom with some ripe bananas and some yeast. Taste is a little bit sweet with some malts and fruits and yeast. Aftertaste is sweet with light bitterness. O.K. the dry hopped version is much better.

One of the best beers out there. It's a timeless classic that you can always fall back on. I always keep some in the fridge because sometimes you just need to drink one.

Stuu666 (4133) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours pale yellow, the taste is a bit too fizzy for me, light and refreshing.

luegomeloacabo (51) - A Coruña, SPAIN - JAN 25, 2015
It pours pale and dense coloured, with a white balanced head. This beer smells sweet and taste, with a dry end though. It is a very good one.

Une explosion d’arome en bouche, une balance parfum/amertume parfaite, une très belle robe blanche, du caractère (elle titre a 8.5°) mais aussi une certaines douceur dans les aromes très fruité et floral dune belle complexité, peut-être un petit coté fleur d’oranger mais aussi du citron, de la vanille. Un classic, a consommer avec un bon fuet ou bon sidflard, du bon pain, du bon fromage, du coleslaw et c’est le panard

MarkoNm (921) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 23, 2015
Pours a fairly clear golden (darker) golden color topped with nice white head. Malty aroma with quite strong yeasty smell, which doesn’t work for me. Taste is sweet and malty at first, bittery hoppy finish. Strong, filling but not exactly my favourite.
