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.

has a lovely sunny yellow colour a bit cloudy.smells like copper, hard to describe the taste fruit and spice come through clean bitter finish, very easy to drink given its potency a high fizz helps to jumble it all together.

Duvel is very easy to get everywhere in NL, and ive had it dozens of times the past 10 yrs living here. Aroma is good but nothing soecial stands out. Appearance is very yellow golden- which is ok but not spectacular. Im much more attracted to the darker and fuller tripel/quad beers. Taste is above avg- very drinkable. Palate is very acid for me, but after taste pleasant. Overall a solid ale, but nowhere near my favorite.

metalspice (139) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - DEC 27, 2014
Lys gul og uklar med høyt hvitt skum med store bobler. Lukt av gress og banan. Smaken noe krydret banan med en besk bismak. Kullsyra treffer hardt med en gang, men forsvinner fort. Gjør meg muligens upopulær ved å påstå at dette ikke var et stort øl?

Les Grands Classiques ne se démodent pas et la raison à cela est simple : ils sont des phares dans leur style respectif. La Duvel n’a certes plus besoin de présentation. Sa robe dorée, sa légendaire effervescente ainsi que son collet généreux sont aujourd’hui des références de la signature belge. L’architecture irrégulière de la mousse est remarquable. Celle-ci se sculpte d’une façon si irrégulière et singulière qu’elle invoque ces après-midi d’été passés allongé sur le dos à contempler les cumulus dans le ciel. Nous avons envie de nommer chaque forme qui se dessine devant nous. Le nez est principalement composé de levures et de sucre. En bouche, la signature belge est aussi affirmée que la mousse: les levures, la légèreté, la pointe d’amertume sont tous des éléments que quiconque étant un tant soi peu attentif aux délices qu’offre une bière réussie saura reconnaître même à l’aveugle. Une bière qu’on ne se lasse d’admirer.

Po przelaniu do szkła utworzyła się postrzępiona, dość nietrwała piana, znikająca do małego krążka, barwa jasno-złota, dość klarowna, lekki osad drożdżowy na dnie butelki. Aromat z butelki wyraźnie dziki, belgijskie drożdże na pierwszym planie. Ze sniftera czuć więcej owoców, brzoskwiń, moreli, porzeczki, gumy balonowej, są oczywiście delikatne nuty stajenne, ale w przyjemnej proporcji. W smaku zaskakująco łagodnie. Fajna chlebowa słodowość o lekko słodkim profilu, owocowa i witbierowa rześkość z delikatną kwaskowością, kontrowane alkoholowo-chmielową goryczką, przyjemną, krótkotrwałą, do tego średnie nagazowanie i alkoholowe rozgrzewanie w przełyku. Smak alkoholu niewyczuwalny.

What can I say, it’s Duvel, one of the greatest beers in the world. Spritzie, effervescent, and delicious.

tonypreto (128) - Akron, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2014
330ml bottle poured into chalice. Great hoppy and yeasty aroma. Pours a light yellow gold with a rapidly dissipating head. Great watery mouthfeel with an excellent amount of carbonation. Flavor of slight hops and great yeast. A wonderful Belgian.

AGCostaNeves (19) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - DEC 15, 2014
A high cream of large bubbles and white coloring of great-looking and durable as well. Beer with the color yellow cloudy gold. Light to medium body, light carbonation and a slightly metallic and astringent taste. It has a complex flavor that at first feels a growing slightly sweet, sour and bitter, and slightly sour end. All this together with a long duration. Its aroma demosntra a light malt and fragrant hops. The yeast takes us a little saltiness. We can enjoy a honey, a woody, and alcohol is conspicuous only in the heat that urges the throat. A beer flavor and complex aroma, balanced, and unmistakable.
