The reason why beer is popular, so phenomenal that my girlfriend likes it. A nice deep amber/yellow with a slight foamy head. Excellent, complex smell that provokes emotions it shouldn't with a simple beverage. And the taste, oh the taste, complex, subtle, not too strong of an alcohol flavor yet distinctly belgian, with moderate hop character. Lovely smooth flavor, delicate yet complex, very refreshing even when the AC's too strong. Fantastic beverage, thank you Belgiam.

No matter how many beers a bar might have if they have the Duvel Green I'm gonna order one. As amazing as the original but lower enough in alcohol that you can drink it a lot easier and there is no alcohol aroma or bite to interfear with the pure pleasure of this beer. Get it anywhere any time.

The initial smell is very pleasant, kind of hoppy and flowery.

There is no bite or strong alcohol bite to it, very nice and smooth.

The aftertaste lingers without being overpowering.

I was very happy to find it available on tap for growlers in a local package store (QB's in Pojoaque, NM)

I had a taste last year at BCTC'08 and a taste at Teresa's Next Door, This review is from BCTC'09.

A - Clear golden straw w/ 3 fingers of snowy white (fresh keg). The cap turns to rings of lace like the rings of saturn, the small remaining head is rocky

S - Spicy, herbal and mild alcohol nose w light malt and a yeasty tinge

M - Crisp, relatively light body for the abv w/ spicy and dry finish, very mild alcohol in the feel

T - Crisp green pine hops and mellow pils malt w/ sweet grainy taste. An almost peppery flavor w/ hints of green herbs and creamy grainy malt flavor. The taste is dry as it finishes w/ spice from the yeast and subtle alcohol presence

D - A great draft version of the Duvel, all the hops + yeast w/ a lighter feel and more quaffable effect. Very smooth and worthy of praise - a great representation of the style.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a fluffy hgead that leaves strands of lace atop the clear golden liquid

Smell: Bready, with hay and white peppery esters

Taste: Bready up front, with a growing peppery bitterness by mid-palate; herbacious tartness after the swallow, with a floral finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with prickly carbonation

Drinkability: Refreshing and easy to drink; a brisk, but welcoming Belgian pale; not the most complex beer out there, and it shouldn't be considered for anything other than what it is
