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.

Duvel started as a dark beer today the brewers are using all modern technologies to make sure that Duvel is blonder than blonde. Classic strong blond Belgian ale. This beer has a great co2 saturation witch is amongst the highest co2 saturation on the Belgium. Beer scene. A beer you need to tast. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone By Belleketels

Bottle, family treat in Serbia while cooking food and relaxing. Real golden hazy pour a bit pale, huge and frothy white foam. Nose: true hoppy upfront, a bit lemon grass, some citric. Some spicy background, grapes leftovers in winery. Mouth: frizzy carbo, spicy classic Belgian notes, decent aperitif orientation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Very pale and clear with a decent head. Yeah, looks like a weak lager, but this is a heavy ale. Spicy and floral hops. Light body, but lots of alcohol which doesn’t taste at all. Very deceptive and dangerous. The old Nick indeed.

This is a longtime favourite of mine. I loved it as a teenager because it was big and reputable but easy drinking. It’s still easy but complex. Fruit, spice and that great Belgian yeast flavour. Beautiful clear golden colour and a big strong head that sticks around. Very clean finish.

Pale golden colour. Nice foam. Aroma: floral hops, some fuits and grain. Taste: rather sweet, medium body. Fruity, a little bit spicy. Good beer.

A classic Belgian. A bit hot on first taste, moving through nice bready flavours and a creamy finish.

Nevalainen (596) - FINLAND - SEP 4, 2016
Hazy pale color with tiny white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, banana, yeast. Taste is sweetish with sourish finish and also some alcohol in finish. Fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice and strong beer.

First time in a couple of years. Bottle. Orange-gold pour with a head difficult to keep down. Grassy with floral hop and yeast flourishes. Dough and citrus. Plenty of citrus on the palate, lovely balance of yeast and malt, carried through with a bright Bohemian hop character. Really refreshing, a hint of alcohol creeping in later not detracting, still unbeatable for the style.
