Duvel is a staple for anyone who appreciates Belgians. It is light, refreshing, delicious and packs enough punch to let you know you imbibed.

Pours frothy as hell. Cloudy pale yellow. Aroma is sweet malt and Belgian yeast: notes of banana, orange, and candy. Taste is light malt sweetness and barnyard dank. Very refreshing, pleasing brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ochniczek (285) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2017

zboj (92) - POLAND - MAR 15, 2017
Piwo w barwie słomkowo-złote, lekko zamglone. Wysycenie duże, piana obfita, średniopęcherzykowa, trwała i dająca ładną koronkę na szkle. W aromacie nuty owocowe, lekko kwiatowe, czuć pracę belgijskich drożdży. W smaku te aromaty są rwnież wyczuwalne, jest goryczka, lekka kwaskowość. Niestety, dość szybko wszystko przykrywa intensywna nuta alkoholowa, zostawiająca w ustach właśnie taki alkoholowy posmak.

midovark (744) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - MAR 14, 2017
Bottled. Pours deep golden with thin, but long lasting white head. Yeasty, fruity aroma combined with some malts and grass in aroma and taste. Medium bodied and lively carbonated, despite the ABV its easily drinkable. Not bad, expected more tho.

kdd230 (60) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2017
330ml. bottle in Mae Kasa, Thailand. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a retentive white head. Aroma of yeast, malt, hops. Flavour yeasty and malty with a sourness and bitterness to the finish that is attractive. Carbonation fairly high and slightly acidic but the high alcohol content is not overwhelming. A top Belgian strong ale.

matty (399) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2017
750 mL bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold color with a thick, white cap of foam. Aroma is mostly yeasty with a touch of sour and a bit of fruitiness. Medium body, the flavor is bready malt, yeast and a little of a sour funk. Finish is mainly clean with just a touch of sourness to it. Excellent!
