Duvel Gefilterd

Appearance: golden, medium-large head, and some good lacing.

Smell: grainy malt.

Taste: grains, very faint hops, and a slight maltiness.

Mouthfeel: medium and smooth.

Overall:
This has a great feel to it. The flavor is ok and nothing more than an average pilsner. The mouthfeel is great and smooth.

Reviewed from notes-
A- Poured into tulip. 1.5 finger head that fades much faster than regular Duvel. Light gold body that is clear, some lacing.
S- Good, light fruits and yeast. Apple, pear.
T- Slightly boring in comparison to regular Duvel. Basically a dry filtered version so there is less flavor.
O- My understanding is that this beer is the filtered version of Duvel, thus not bottle conditioned. It comes off more dry and less complex, but would be a great session beer if I lived in Belgium (if only). I really wouldn't seek this out if you live in the US though.

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.

Poured on tap at Birch & Barley/Churchkey DC into a tulip glass.

A soupy like head with not much rock white retention sits. Clear bodied pale amber like in color with lots of very fast rising carbonation. Lacing on the glass leaves a stickyness quality spiderweb.

Nose is a small kind of candy like and Belgian yeast, the classic sense, a little small though.

Taste is interesting a mix of sour and sweet with an interesting malt sensation. Lemon as well easy on the palate, with a little bit of prickly carbonation also. Some chewy wheat like feel too with a hint of candied sugar.

Overall this is alright it actually reminds me of a much better version of Delirium Tremens.

Drank from my Duvel tulip.

A - Pours a clear straw Golden colour, with a white head that reduces to a flim and laces

S - Aromas of grain and hops with a little yeast.

T - Very hoppy almost like an APA, very grassy with some citrus and spice.

M - Nice medium carbonation and light body.

O - Worth a try

Duvel Gefilterd or Duvel Groen as it is also called, differs from normal Duvel in that as the name suggest that it was filtered and therefore isn't bottle fermented. Usually can be found only in bottles in Belgium and is not that common or well known. It was served in a Duvel tulip with their coat of arms on the glass as opposed to the regular Duvel glass.

A: lot of carbonation going on, clear pale yellow, with a sparkling 1 finger head
S: smells of hops, some yeast, floral, minor hint of citrus peel
T: very strong on hops, very bitter, too bitter for me, the bitter hops in turn overpower everything else, tastes like a very young beer which it sort of is, grass, minor spices, some citrus
M: very crisp & dry, light body
D: bit too much carbonation & bitterness, overall came across as being a too young Duvel that was really in need of bottle fermentation, might be more enjoyable to people in the States given the dominating hops

On tap at St. Arnolds in DC. Poured into Belgian tulip glass. Pours light yellow and frothy two finger white head and retains lacing well throughout the drinking session. The clarity, active carbonation and condensation makes it sparkle in the glass. Springy hops aroma very evident with a little spruce and a light sweetness. Tastes like pils malt, pear, noble hop bitterness, with a slight tang. Not quite as full bodied as other Belgians I have tasted. Dry finish. Carbonation adds a great refreshing texture that compliments the light hoppy flavor well. This is perhaps a less harsher version of its bigger brother, Duvel.

Incredibly reformulated version of the classic Duvel with a little less octane which heightens its drinkability. While it has a lower ABV it still retains the golden color, thick white head, light body, and crispness that everyone loves about the other.

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.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A-This beer pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a thick mousy white head that last and last as a thick ring and is supported by a gentle carbonation of tiny bubbles.
S- This beer has a soft green hint with a pale malt note and a very light circus peanut hint. The finish is a light sulfury sweet hint.
T- This beer has a soft pale malt flavor with a soft nougat note and a clean crisp bite in the finish. There is a soft sulfury hint in the finish that turns a bit more tart as the beer warms.
M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a crisp finish and no alcohol heat.
D- This beer is very different from the aged Duvel. It has very faint hints of yeast characteristics and is a pretty clean lagered flavor. I don't know where it hides the 7.5 %ABV but its gone. Interesting to try but I will stick to the classic Duvel.

Came from the tap at Moan and Dove. The drink had a pale, clear yellow color with a patchy had and thin lacing. Aromas offered a herby tone with a floral, biscuit flavor. The drink had a bittersweet mixture with a citrus, apricot flavor. Hints of bread and yeast were also sensed. Really, really good carbonation. Aided in making the drink light but crisp. Overall, not too bad at all.

I drank from tap into a chalice.

This is a very disappointing beer. It has a 1/3 less of the alcohol and even less the tatse of its big brother Duvel. Don't know why anyone would drink this.

Its gold in color, pretty much identical to Duvel in color, and smell.

The taste is a let down, several notches below Duvel.

Green Duvel (Duvel for girls), 25 cl bottle, 7% abv (as stated on the bottle).

A: It looks very clear, pale golden, with a duvel-like fluffy head, and massive carbonation.
S: Quite similar to the regular one: bready, hoppy, slightly citrus, cloves, floral notes. pleasant yeast.
T: Hop, malty, cloves. Also several fruits: banana, lemon, slightly bitter aftertaste. Flavours are not massive, but it's balanced.
M: Very smooth and easy on the palate.
D: Very drinkable. it's tasty, and the alcohol is easily hidden by the flavours.

250 ml. bottle, bought at De Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Crystal pale golden colour, with a big head that holds for a while. Perfumed smell of hops, spicy, with cloves and coriander.light body, silky flavor and citrusy taste, with spices, clove, coriander vanilla. Just a lighter version of the usual Duvel. You don't need it if you can try the real Duvel.
