on tap at the iron abbey, horsham Pa- breakfast beer of choice cheering on germany vs Argentina. Served in a Duvel green tulip glass. Wow! Now I understand what a true hoppy belgian pale ale should taste like. Great glass lacing as to be expected from Duvel. Hops on the forefront of the palate but blended so well with the fruity esters of the distinctive yeast. Great finish smooth but distinct bitterness. Wonderful drinkability- resilient is a good word- like the german team this world cup. Great beer for a great beer drinking moment. Will seek this out.

A: Straw body with lines of visible carbonation. Thin white head. It foamed over a touch when opened but barely any lost. It looks a bit like champagne.
S: Apples pour from the lip of the glass. Tripel underpinnings. Amazing aroma.
T: Great flavor. I am very impressed. Again, very tripel like but not nearly as much spice as some tripels have. Apples and sweetness. Smooth as silk.
M: Great mouthfeel. Super silky with just a touch of carbonation on the tongue.
D: Even with some age on the bottle, an amazing beer all around. Belgium does know how to do it.

Appearance: clear golden yellow in color with a short 1/2" head. No lacing develops during the session.
Smell: lemon zest, yeast, and some grassiness are pleasant on the nose.
Taste: nice mild bready malt profile. Yeast, lemon citrus, some bits of grass, and a decent bitterness round it out. Alcohol is well hidden.
Mouthfeel: crisp from start to finish. Medium bodied beer. Aftertaste is is short-lived.
Drinkability: this one is easy to quaff and somewhat refreshing despite the style. Less spiciness than the standard Duvel and a bit more bready.

Bottle at Mondial 2008, paid up the ass for it but worth it.
Pours a cloudy pale straw yellow, thick white head forms, drops some nice lacing, retains a decent layer, looks good. Smell is nice, sweet malts, some honey, spice, light straw/wheaty character, some floral and citrus, bit of yeast, fresher aroma than the Duvel, more hopping. Taste is similar, sweet and malty front, some yeast, crackers, spice, very fruity, floral and herbal finish, light flavour but nice. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation, very smooth and easy to drink. Similar to normal Duvel but I found this easier to drink and more refreshing.

Look: pours a clear golden color with a nice white head.
Smell: Grains, yeast, grass, pepper and hops.
Taste: Nice bitter Belgium hops, grass, malts, citrus and pepper. Crisp and dry aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Medium-high carbonation and medium-low body
Overall: A nice beer, not as complex as the regular Duvel though.

First thing to note is that this review might be a little bit too harsh. This is a super drinkable, wonderfully flavored beer that has survived a trip back from France, after all.
Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin, whispy, tenacious white head with tight bubbles and nice lacing.
Great aroma brimming with bready, biscuit malt suffusing a warm, spicy, phenolic bloom of light fruit and clove. There's some earthy hop spice as well.
Taste is more of the same, well balanced, early/mid-palate sweetness drops off into a clean bitterness.
Mouthfeel is smooth and easy, effervescent and bright. Could use a bit more carbonation.
Extremely easy to drink, some late alcohol warmth clouds the pictures a bit.
Simple... you love Duvel, you'll love (or at least like) this.

Crystal clear golden color, not the same amount of head with the real Duvel but good enough for what it is. Slightly spicy aroma with some dry malt and alcohol as well. The flavor has the obvious Duvel like characteristics just not as flamboyant, a good beer but there is no need to even think about this beer ... yet it would be perfect for the US because 99% of the bartenders in the US don't even know how to friggin pour a real Duvel. So for them to pour this into a glass is a no brainer.

Brown 25cl bottle, best before Aug 2007, drank March 2007.
Poured into my Duvel party tulip glass, it looks fantastic, huge white foaming head, bubbles continuously replenishing the head through the clear golden yellow body of the beer.
Aroma of yeast and hops, summer, warm weather type of smell.
Good hoppy, yeast ester flavour, sourness and bitterness combine to explode in your mouth.
Dry aftertaste, which gets stronger as the beer warms in the mouth, yeast flavours stay around too.
Very impressed with this beer, almost as good as the normal Duvel.

Pours out a clear light straw with a huge bright white filling head. Goes down very smooth, but not as smooth as I had hoped. Dry profile. Balance is well done: not too hoppy and not too malty. Slightly spicey and a touch of yeasty. This is the simple Duvel. Lacks the complex profile of the original, but that is not for sure to be a bad thing. A great beer worth snagging when you see it.

Strikingly clear, golden beer with the characteristic big white head of its big brother. It seems to be less turbid and ligher in color, though I'll be tasting my second bottle side-by-side with a Duvel red to really make sure.
Similarly floral, spicy aromatics: candied apples, honeydew, pepper, and pears in syrup. There's definitely a wet, grainy sensation in the background. Caught at the right moment, this has a distinctively pilsner-like smell to it.
The bitter, white part of the lemon is present here. Also some strong melon flavors and a strong hoppy finish -- a pleasant bitterness to really make the finish nice. Lingers. Overall, perhaps a bit sweeter and more honey/melon-like than Duvel red.
It seems to me I'd be neglecting some sort of higher call to duty if I didn't drink this again with its big brother next to it. Inquiring minds -- namely mine -- want to know.

A: Pours pale golden with a large white airy light head that slowly sinks into nice lacings. Rich visible bubbles.
S: Rich sour sweet malt and lots of fruits, green apples and oranges. Spices (pepper, mainly) and yeast, kind of like there's brett in it. Dry!
T: Dry sour and bitterness. A mild sweetness is noticable in the malt, but rather faint. Lots of fruits; green apples and mild orange sezt. Spices and yeast.
M: Body is medium, creamy and bone dry. Carbonation is surprisingly mild and smooth. Aftertaste is sour and bitter.
O: A nice ale, surprisingly complex considering that it has been filtered.

Consumed immediately after a bottle of the unfiltered, "red" Duvel.
More beery, less earthy, less nutty and less spicy on the nose than its mate.
On the palate there is less bitterness and, therefore, a greater predominance of syrupy pear, apple, muscat and melon fruit. Thick and unctuous in texture.
Clearly not an option while the unfiltered red is available yet a fascinating study on the effects of filtration on taste.

The "fourth" Duvel of the family, and the one variety which is not available for purchase in the US. This bottle was brought home from Belgium, and it's a small and slender 250 ml one. On to the beer:
Looks like a normal Duvel to me. The body is golden yellow, visible carbonation bubbles race to the tap, and the foam creamy and sticking well. The head isn't as fluffy, though we're dealing with only 250 ml instead of 330 ml. It smells a little rustic, almost like a saison. A little floral, honey, and peppery spice.
Taste is on the dry side, though delicate and balanced. There's a little sweetness and a melon-like flavor. There's also a delicate pepper note and flowers. A kiss of alcohol makes itself present in the throat, though not to disturb the harmony of the beer. Bready notes too. It's a medium bodied beer with an airiness and smooth body.
Compared to regular Duvel, gefilterd looks inferior. Comapred to other blonds out there, it can make some noise.
