UPDATED: JAN 21, 2017 Translucent gold, huge white pillowy head and amazing lacing all the way down the glass. Apples, pears, bananas, spice, mild alcohol & funk on the nose...pure Belgian delight, Love it! Sweet malt & honey followed by ester fruitiness and a mild bitter hop & alcohol bite at the end. Dry finish. Mouth Feel reminiscent of champagne. Love this one!

GeorgePratt (39) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Aroma of wheat and caramel. Pours a brilliant gold with a thick white head. Tastes of honey and wheat. For a fairly strong beer the alcohol taste is minimal. Brilliant.

How can you rate this as anything but near perfect? A few points docked just in case there is the potential to better this beer in the style, but I think thatd only be by adding brett to a similar beer. Great.

Evilman (164) - Taverny, FRANCE - JAN 8, 2017
Obviously a classic for many good reasons. If you like bitterness, the mighty Duvel is a great choice, it might seem unsurprising when you experienced a lot of other exotic beers, but still, whats bad to say about it? High alcohol level, strong character, it maybe lacks a deeper aftertaste to me, only reason why I rate it a bit lower than the classics Chimay for example... Still a great beer to have for any occasion. APPROVED BY TAVERNYS BLACK METAL CREW!
