33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow with huge chalk white head. Wheaty and yeasty/spiced aroma. Spiced flavour but also a soft mouthfeel givin the beer a nice soft balance. Alcohol is quite present and warming from start to finish.

What can you say about Duvel that has not yet been said. Decently hopped bitter brew that is very drinkable. Slight smoke in the finish, maybe a bit of orange peel in the flavor.

Pale yellow, hazy and lively. Big yeasty, fruity aroma. Complex, spicy, funky and immensly complex. Also dangerously drinkable (Damn! Is that bottle already empty?) A world classic that has many followers.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Well carbonated. Flavoursome but not that fruity compared to a Tripel Karmeliet. Nice though!
