UPDATED: OCT 3, 2006 What can I say about this beer, except that it is fine. The only bad thing about it, I have to go to New Orleans, I cant get it in Mississippi because of good ole boy redneck politics...

Bottle, 8.5% a/v Massive foamy head. With a well carbonated, somewhat cloudy golden body. Smells somewhat fruity with a tinge of hops. The taste is strange for a golden beer, very fruity and sweet with a peppery aftertaste. Very intriguing. Not a bad beer whatsoever for what it cost. Ill be getting this one again!

It is entirely easy to forget about this beer because its virtually available everywhere. And while Ive completely forgotten Ive had it, I recently tried it again and its STILL a fantastic beer. Incredible aroma of fruits, doughy yeast, grass, malt and peppers. WOW! Appearance is, like the photo, yellow in color, some carbonation and huge head. Mouthfeel is full yet still somehow light. Flavors were green grapes, sweet tropical fruits, pepper, yeast and malt. An excellent beer and an excellent brewery. Duvel can usually be found most everywhere so grab one and share it with someone whod like great beer.

Light, clear and fizzy. Thick, loose head which laces. Sweet medium body. A bit of wheat flavor in the finish. The alcohol is only present when warming.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Pours a pale yellow with a large foamy, frothy head. Fruity slighly sour aroma. Quite a bit of carbonation. Very nice flavor, a sweetness that is just about perfect. If only I was able to pour it without too much of a head..... guess Ill need to practice.

Pours light gold with thick fluffy white head that maintains and laces. Aroma is of fruity candy. Mouth is very carbonated. Flavor is sweet belgian fruitiness. Finishes nice sweet fruity tartness that lingers. Alcohol warms stomach after a few drinks. Very nice just not spectactular.

Honestly, this beer is a masterpiece and we should consider ourselves lucky to have such great access to it here in the States. At least in NYC. I cant think of one drawback.

Im glad I got this in Europe so I didnt have to pay the inflated cost it costs over here. Not bad, but I didnt find it to be anything special, fairly smooth, maybe a bit of a spice flavor, with some malt to it.
