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.

Definitely my favorite Belgian beer, although Chimay Blue is the other that I like. I had a Duvel month a couple of years ago, when I drank it several times a week. But after the first bottle, which I thought was one of the finest beers I ever had, it got old, and fast. I just don’t like Belgian beers. Definitely in large part because the yeast they use tastes terrible. I think that you are either a Belgian fan or you aren’t.

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

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.

Klasyczne piwo. Duvel to klasa sama dla siebie. Świetnie zbalansowane, piękna piana, dobre zarówno schłodzone jak i w wyższych temperaturach. Jest w nim prostota i czystość pilzneńskiego słodu i kompleksowość belgijskich drożdży. Świetne.

Beautifull Belgian Strong Ale. A great bready- hoppy aroma. And an uncomparable taste.

I gave this a 19 overall only because I like to think the perfect beer is still out there... somewhere. This comes close. This goes down in my book as the second best overall beer I’ve ever had. Everything about this beer was spot on.
