davegore (223) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2007
pours a golden colour, very lively in the glass....patchy foam head. strong aroma of citrus and yeast. flavours of grapefruit in the mouth...very deep lasting flavours...8.5%, can’t tell. finishes long, coats the mouth nicely

Too much foam when poured and head is too frothy. The taste is pleasantly strong especially for a "blonde" beer however has a sour after taste and lacks balance.

Bottle-Poured a golden hue with a good amount of head. Excellent citrius aroma. Extremely drinkable and highly recommendable for drinkers who like to sit and savor a enjoyable drink. Highly recommended trying one in Eulogy Tavern in Philadelphia, PA 2nd and Chestnut.

Very nice beer and not for nothing called Duvel Devil. If you did not tasted it before and you drink 2 of them inside a pub, end when you got out after it, well you will feel that. The alcohol is very fast in to the blood circulation. So be aware for tasting this wonderfull and nice tasting beer. You will not taste the alcohol but... They brewed it earlier on draft for export but i do not think you can have it on tap for the moment

Pours a crystal clear gold with a large, foamy, white head. Aroma is citrus, yeast, malt, and spice. Spicey flavor. Alcohol, lightly sweet malt, yeast, and citrus. Light body. Finishes sorta bitter with an alcoholic bite. Thats a tasty beer.

Embrouille (2854) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 10, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2009 Bottled 33cl. Third rerate: Extremely beautiful, mountainous meringue head. Unique appearance. Melon, cherry, cork and apples showing up in both aroma and flavor. Yeasty and complex. The alcohol is quite present, especially on the swallow. Reminiscent of cherries in the finish.

SynergyXJ (510) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle Light golden pour with massive head of white microbubbles. I actually suggest taking a huge bite of the head, for it tastes wonderful. Fruity wheat aroma of cloves and banana. Flavor follows with more malt and more yeast. Very smooth with a great long lasting finish.

ChrisTurner (209) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle -- Rather disappointing cloudy lemon colour with a ginormous sudsy white head. Beautiful stream of carbonation rising from above the stem of the tulip glass. Aroma is fruity, malty and yeasty with flavour to match. Mouthfeel is surprisingly light but not at all watery. Has surprisingly little alcohol warmth considering its 8.5% content. A great beer but very overpriced in Oz.

3.6
rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Gold, fluffy white head. Nose is yeast, bananna, clove, some doughy malt. Flavor is sweet light malt, yeast, alcohol, phenols. Undefined fruitiness. Fruity long lasting finish, some bitterness
