OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Poured in a Duvel tulip. A - Hazy golden straw with 2 fingers of delicate white foam. Awesome retention and a ridiculous amount of lacing. S - Sweet grassy aroma, twangy Belgian yeast, soft grain, over ripened golden delicious apples at first, but as it warms up the acidity comes out make it more of a tart aroma. Unknown spice and hints of alcohol. T - Sweet grainy malt, spicy hops, some sourness comes through the middle, with tart apples in the background. It has an herbal bite towards the end. Finishes dry and slightly acidic. M - Medium body, moderate carbonation. Great yeast strain! The sour and acidic qualities really make this beer stand out. It’s complex but focused. Serving type: bottle 09-09-2011

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017 Pours clear yellow, with thick white head. Intense fruity scent, but a more alcoholic taste. It's highly carbonated - typical belgian beer.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017 Meget lys. Dufter fantastisk! Gæret og malet og vildt dejlig. God rund smag af klassisk belgisk øl. Stor fornøjelse.

Golden in colour. Very enjoyable. Nice fruity notes coming from the yeast probably.

13/20 sometimes i like duvel, maybe wasn't in the mood tonight. huge fruity taste which also has a pilsner backbone to it, slightly sour aftertaste, gassy and an alcohol burn.

Ocena na podst. notatek. Coś tam też zapamiętałem - aromat przyjemny, owocowy, w smaku dość słodko, równie owocowo i orzeźwiająco. Mega klarowne z konkret pianą, trwałą (fota). Bardzo dobre a nie przepadam za belgami ...

LCI. Uit de fles geschonken. Blijft toch een lekkere strong ale: moutig, fris, beetje zuur door de citrus. Mooi bier voor op een warme zomeravond

Kroger Bottle. I know I've had this in the past and needed another brew to fill up my mix-6. Was surprised to not see it rated by me. Pours golden with a large white head. Aroma is slightly fruity, yeasty, doughy, grassy. Flavor is grass, yeast, light fruits, dough, light spices.

1.7.2017 DUVEL (drank from pilsner glass, 330ml bottle) Smell: Typical belgian ale smell -- caramellized and deep-fruity // Mouthfeel: Slightly oily, pleasant carbonation, very drinkable // Head: Beautiful, majestic, clean, almost white // Taste: Caramelly and fruity, great for dessert // Look: Golden colour but has a nice gradient.. slightly blurry but bubbles are vivid // Overall: Really good entry belgian ale, along with kwak and leffe
