good beer, but overrated. good for people that love the taste of alcohol. advice for those who do: try a glass of vodka.

Tries this beer after volley-ball with friends. The taste is well balanced with alcohol, dangerous to drink too much of this good beer.

Mishnok (285) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2017
Good tasting Belgian classic with malty, almost herbal taste. Lively carbonation at first. Decent drink, though I wouldn't be able to manage too many because of the strength ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AssKicker (464) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 16, 2017
Couleur jaune pâle bien limpide, mousse généreuse avec de grOOOsse bubulles dont la tenue est pas mal correcte. Nez un peu fruité sur les agrumes, un peu sur la levure, un peu sur les céréales. A peine dans le gosier que la Duvel réchauffe bien les muqueuses avec ses 8,5% d’alcool, ça tabasse pas mal ! D’autant plus qu’elle est sèche en bouche. Grosse carbo qui violente les papilles, amertume modérée en fin de bouche, assez fruitée en terme d’arômes qui vont vers le citronné et les agrumes, mais aussi sur le floral et l’alcool. Légères notes de levure en fin de bouche, voire même un peu métallique. Une valeur sûre dans les catégories des bières belge, qui a le mérite d’éviter d’être ragoutante avec trop de sucre et trop de goût de levure.

Pours with a golden colour and a huge white head; Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. Bittery finish and taste of alcohol that is not disturbing. Very good overall!

I tried this at the bishops cellar on 5/12/17. It had an amazing color, not a strong aroma. Had a very strong taste that quickly blended all the hops and malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sharp slightly floral taste. Refreshing but not complex. An excellent widely available beer with a sharp champaign like texture. Its a classic that still stands up really well.

Beautiful golden clear with champagne size effervescence. Pour slowly and your rewarded with a beautiful Whitehead. crisp tangy with just a hint of hops and fruit. One of the most refreshing beers I’ve ever drank. This is my number one overall favorite beer in the world. Buy again? Of course

vinivini (2234) - Gomel, BELARUS - MAY 3, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2017 Straw yellow, huge frothy white head. Aroma: candy, pear, spicy yeast. Medium body. The flavour is surprisingly dry. Pear, yeast, nuts. Light to medium bitterness. A noble one.

Sircatis (284) - FRANCE - MAY 2, 2017
Bière blonde claire très gazeuse. Au nez je ne détecte pas grand chose si ce n’est une odeur de fer?! En bouche elle est douce pétillante et fraîche. Très bonne bière belge.
