There's something to be said for any beer that inspires 100s of imiitators. Duvel is such a beer. Served from the classic caged corked big bottle into the stamped tulip glass, the amazing rocky head iis truly a sight to behold, and an important lesson for BA wannabes who think that the less head is better. Brilliant quite clear orange in color, with orange peel and coriander up-front, and a pretty significant alcohol aftertaste. Having tasted Duvel in the corked cage, 330ml and on cask, I must advocate for the big bottle, the bottle conditioning sets it apart from its brethren. For anyone looking towards gaining an appreciation for Belgium's weighty contribution to the world of brewing, this beer is an absolute must. Looking forward to cracking my stash open in about 6 months. The scary part is despite the high ABV, this is a very drinkable brew-very tasty! Unquestionably one of the world's great beers.
