Bottle. Poured a light clear sparkling yellow with a large white frothy head and had poor lacing. The aroma was of a soapy yeast, herbal hops and a straw malt with notes of a blend of spices. It tasted light and mildy acidic in the beginning and finished with a nice light bitter hop flavor. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery/dry in texture. Overall a nice light, tasty, refreshing belgian Golden ale.

Yellow color with big white head. Aroma is fresh, sweet malts, and Belgian yeast. Easy sweet malt taste, banana, even Weizen-like. A Helles with Belgian yeasts describes this well I guess. Foamy crispy mouthfeel. Nicely balanced, easy to drink.

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 (647) - 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.

Bottle at home. Pours pale yellow, the taste is a bit too fizzy for me, light and refreshing.

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.
