first thing you notice is the HUGE foamy textured head. Has more of everything compared to the Groen. Great beer, but a bit lighter than what we had expected. Dangerous beer as it could be a session that would mess you uuuuuupp

Huge fizzy head with lots of carbonation. Appearance was light gold/yellow. I expected a weak flavor due to the light color, but was surprised with the fullness of flavor. Very drinkable!

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2007 Pours gold, with lots and lots of foamy white head. Bitter, sharply citrus flavor up front with slight flavors of banana and other fruits, which really come out as it warms some. Alcohol also noticeable on the back end. Maybe too much carbonation, but overall very refreshing and unique beer.

The foam had nice thickness and lasted. Now we get to the good stuff. Next time i will just drink this from the bottle(hillbilly style). This thing was awesome to drink. The smell flavor and everything else was really great. Could put back quite a few of these.

Had many of Duvels in Europe and is a popular choice, but not in my top ten of favorite Belgian Strong Ales. The bitter / alcohol after-taste, weak floral & body (compared to other Belgiums) draws some lower scores from me.

Nice, fruity, malty and crisp. Clear golden body and healthy and thick head without distracting levels of carbonation. Too drinkable, love it.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2010 Bottle at home in a tulip. What an experience! Golden pour with a fantastic thick, white head that lasts. Spice and citrus taste with just a bit of warming. Extreme carbonation.

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2007 750 ml bottle, tulip glass. Pale yellow with tiny yeast bubbles that form a pristine white head which slowly rises above the glass and above the surface cohesion level without a dop running down the side of the glass. Aroma of yeast, fruit, floral, and a little alcohol. This is a seemingly straight forward brew that really has a lot more to it. Not too sweet and the alcohol notes are powerful but fitting.

I guess this one just didn’t do for me what it apparentl does for others. Not "intense." Its fine, above decent, but not extraordinary.

Pale yelloow with a perfect white foamy head leaving extensive lacings in the glass. The aroma is full of grassy hops and sweet yeast . Spicy complex flavour. Very interesting beer whose mothfeel is improved by leaving the glass alone for a few minutes.
