Bottle. 8.5%. Bottle. Spicy pepperiness in aroma, fresh ground pepper. Golden colour, big stable white head. Fruity flavour, thin mouthfeel. Not excactly watery, but the flavour is a bit thin. Nicely peppery, though, and a good example of a Belgian strong.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle from Sainsbury. Hazy gold colour with fluffy white head. Not a huge aroma, some yeasty hoppy citrus. Fine in mouth with citrus hop finish. Fine if unexciting golden strong ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2006 Bottled. Well-carbonating, clear, golden-orange with a huge, large-bubbled, lasting off-white head and lots of floaties. Alcohol, apple, some yeast and cellar, and orange-notes in the aroma. Citrus, sugar, alcohol, wheat-notes and some spices in the flavor. Medium body and a finish with alcohol, fruit and spices. Expected more alcohol in this one, so it was a pleasant surprise. (060929)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (BBE 09/2009)
Pale yellow color, lively white head. Foam wants to come out from the bottle. Aroma has citron, yeast, cardboard and some honey. Medium-bodied. Fruity, sweet yeasty, almost sugary. Hoppy bitterness in the finish. Finish has metal sharpness and alcohol. Quite enjoyable, but could have more bitterness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Slightly hazy golden; aroma of alcohol, peach, biscuit, slight bit of paint thinner (effin' Riva again with the phenols), faint cardamom. Body has a plasticy, fizzy feel. Peppery character, a little bread, a little acidity. These wanna-be Duvels have a tough time coming into the same ballpark - gives me more respect for the original.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, bought @ Belgisk Bryg, Cph.
Pours pale yellow, good deal of bubbles. Small, frothy white head nice duration. Aroma is a bit metallic, some yeastiness and biscuity malts. Light citrusy. Fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely sweet, good maltiness. Still a lingering off-note of metal. Rather sweet and the metal doesn’t do it any favours.
