Huge white lasting head, great appearance. Sweet aroma with balanced, complex flavor of fruit, pear or apple. Excellent. luckygirl (1222) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2006
750. Beer is clear, light-hued gold. Head is initially massive, rocky and white. Diminishes into a sticky, high, stubborn curtain of lacing. Mostly lasting.<P> BelgianBeerGal (4173) - Panama City, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2006
Aroma is malty with light notes of toasted grain; Hoppy with light notes of chamomile, citrus zest, trace of pine; Yeasty with a light note of basement; Light note of alcohol, grains of paradise, candy sugar.<P>
The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic with a long, warmish, lightly bittersweet finish.<P>
The body is medium, the texture is velvety, the carbonation is fizzy.<P>
I know this is no brain-buster, but it’s been a a favorite session beer of mine for the last couple of years and I still like it. It’s simple. easy and tasty.
Draft/Bottle/Can. This seems like the Budvar of Belgium. Not a bad bier, but nothing special. A good pub bier but nothing I would work hard to find. Maracuja (1) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 30, 2006 does not count
330ml bottle, creamy head right to the end, with balanced strains of yeast. Has a great crisp taste with a banana aroma. Refreshing and crisp beer. Nice beer to drink before going to bed. Would buy again. grease (42) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 30, 2006
Duvel is a wonderful beer. My latest example had big clove spiciness from the yeast, a nice bitterness for balance, and a dryness that makes this beer deceptively drinkable. The carbonation is intense and accentuates the yeast characters nicely. Overrated? I think not.

I think this beer is hugely overrated. It looks very artificial to me, so I don’t really like it, nope. evilcougar (67) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2006
A nice light amber color with a great foamy head. It noses like champagin and finishes the same way, with a slightly fruity slightly bitter finish. overall a very good beer even if it is a bit on the expensive side homersimpsin (40) - South Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2006
Excellent beer from Belgium, full of flavour, light on the palate, thick foamy head, love the taste! Money well spent. mgermani (1010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2006
Thin and yeasty (almost medicinal), a bit of malt. Poured a pale yellow with an excellent head which lasted right through to the end with nice lace. Almost a wheaty flavour, light malting for sure. Some hops (Saaz, Tettnanger?), slight citrus taste. Wonderfully creamy body, a bit thin at the end but a great aftertaste. Good carbonation. A nice beer, but not my first choice. Extremely drinkable, but Chimay Blanche a much better light Belgian. humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - DEC 26, 2006
A nice, easy and pale strong ale with a candied fruit aroma, a crisp palate and clean finish. The color is blonde and the head is pronounced, frothy and persistent. The flavor holds tart apples above light candied sugar and subtle yeastiness. Overall, a very nice balance of subtle characters. This is certainly a beer to be paired with fine dining or a quick nibbling of cheese.
