A Belgian golden ale. On the nose it is lightly hoppy and yeastily spicy, with faint caramelly malt notes and a touch of citrusy and estery fruit. The head tastes extremely bitter, as is often the case with this style. Surprisingly fruity, but with a strong hoppy bitterness. There is a warming, malty, vanilla quality to it, which develops into an alcohol kick towards the end. Secondary fermentation in the bottle.

jredmond (7671) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2008
On Draft at Philly Train Station. Pours a clear golden body with thick, soapy white head that remains for awhile. The aroma is all yeast and alcohol. The taste is all alcohol - didnt really prefer this one.

"Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste..." - Mick Jagger - "Sympathy for the Devil" Beautiful looking pour - light champagne colored with an everpresent soft white head with good lacing. Light, fresh yeasty aroma. Very refreshing flavor - but not much there. Pick up faint straw notes and a little bit of vanilla, but not much else. Very smooth mouthfeel and the alcohol is hidden well.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2008 Bottle (BB Apr/10). Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (basement, mold), with light notes of plastic and pineapple juice. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. A beginner’s strong golden ale, if that makes any sense. Simple aroma with a few minor off notes, simple and light/sweet flavor balance. Not much going on here.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2005
A Mes rate: Very very similar to Duvel. Citric, yeasty but with some extra spice as compared to Duvel. Huge rocky head that dies all too quickly. Plenty of malt and a little of something sweet vanilla? cream? Alcohol is clearly there and its all rounded off with plenty of spice. Very much like a spicy Duvel.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6846) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 I have had this beer a couple of times over the years but had not managed to rate it until now. Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very pale yellow color with an enormous fluffy white head. The aroma is sweet, yeasty and peppery. The flavor is fairly dry and is yeasty and bready - almost chewy. There is a peppery element and a tangy, bitter and spicy finish. The mouthfeel is moderately thick . Not bad but no Duvel.
