Is this the best beer in the world ? It’s rich golden colour, it’s beautiful frothy head and it’s sharp taste makes this one a no-brainer. Only problem is that at 8.5% you can’t overdo it.

jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - APR 21, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2007 11.2 oz bottle. This Belgian strong ale is better than the average beer, the taste is dominant....yeast aroma.

mannika (140) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2007
330 mL bottle. Aroma is of sweet hops. Pours a cloudy, light golden colour with a bit of sediment (not sure if this is normal). Pours a very fine white head, almost champagne-like. Flavour is extremely spicy, with the alcohol hitting the nostrils rather strongly. Once the spiciness subsides, there is a bit of a lingering sweetness. Palate is quite nice, the fairly high carbonation and high-alcohol content give a numbing feeling in the mouth. Overall, a nice powerful Belgian.

3.6
downender (9003) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2007
750ml bottle at room temperature. Clear, pale gold colour with a huge, rocky head. Sweet, spicy aroma with a hint of coriander. Flavours of dessert apples and grass with alcohol prominent in the aftertaste. Very good, but no world-beater.

Duvel is "The Beer". A glass of Duvel can be different every time, depending on the way you serve it.

Nice easy drinking for a belgian beer nothing too complex though, very light palate by european standards good entrance point for people moving from mainstream beers

kevd193213 (992) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - APR 16, 2007
Nice golden pour with a thick white frothy head. Moderate carbonation. Aroma and flavor of hops and malt with faint lingering of apple and pear. Nothing overly fancy here, just a good solid beer.
