3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle) Pours a clear pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of mustiness, lemon zest, corn grain, and a hint of coriander. Flavor of spicy yeast, grapefruit peel, and light pear with a bitter finish. Rather bland after being filtered...
Bottle from Belgisk Bryg. Malt and honey in the aroma along with mild fruit and spices. The taste is rather delicate for a Duvel and delicate for a 7% ABV beer. The taste is rather floral with notes of violets, peach and white pepper. A delicate and refined beer. Highly drinkable. Holmen1 (6475) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2017
0,25 flaske fra Belgisk Bryg, delt med Steven på hytta okt-17: klar gylden med ok skum. Fersken, hvit pepper, blomsterhonning og noen vegetale toner. Bitterheten opplevdes som skarp i første slurken, men den mildnet etter hvert og ble riktig så behagelig. Slank for sin voltstyrke, lett å drikke og med noe honningsødme helt i slutten. De siste slurkene hadde også noe blomsteraktig i seg (fioler?). Muggus69 (2723) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - SEP 23, 2017
250mL bottle from International Beer Collector. BB 04/2017
Looks like a Duvel in the glass....just too small! Blonde with big white head, but looks meek in a big Duvel-brand glass.
Nose of spicy peppery phenolics & apricot like esters with a grain malt base.
Seems thins compared to the original - 1.5% may as well be 4% - this seems like a mid-strength beer.
Seems a bit underwhelming on the body - yeah nice touch of yeasty spice & cereal malt, but just falls short.
They basically took the Devil out of Duvel here - not much left afterwards! Beerhunter111 (22513) - P´Castle, GERMANY - JUL 29, 2017

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2017 0.25 l bottle from 'Belgiuminabox.com', best before March 2018. Clear, golden yellow with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, quite grassy, floral, slightly fruity and a bit herbal aroma of lemon peel, pineapple, fresh grass and some crackers. Just a bit sweet, moderately bitter, rather grassy-spicy, floral, slightly fruity and a little herbal taste of lemon peel, fresh grass, pineapple, some honey and a touch of crackers, followed by a short, medium bitter, grassy-spicy and quite dry finish. Medium body, fairly effervescent mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Way better than last time I drank this (because it's a lot fresher), has a refreshing hoppy character and is just not as heavy as the regular Duvel.

In tegenstelling tot de gewone Duvel die ik super lekker vind, ontbreekt deze groene Duvel aan smaak en karakter
