On tap at the One Stop Beer Shop, Brooklyn, NY.
Poured into Duvel tulip glass.
Pours a healthy crisp golden with about one finger of foamy white head.
Smell is of grassy/earthy belgian yeasts and a bit of hops.
Taste is very earthy...grassy, yeast with a hop and slight malt balance.
This is a superb brew and a belgian classic. Every beer drinker should know what this tastes like.

I bought eight bottles with two of the new designer tulip glasses at the grocery store the other day. I've had many Duvels so it's time to review now.

Poured the 33cL bottle into an original Duvel tulip glass. The color is pale golden, clear with a little yeasty haze. I love the way the head looks, fluffy, foamy and stable.

When I opened the bottle I immediately noticed a grainy, fruity smell. In the glass it took a while for the foam to dissappear and let the full scent come through. It smelled fruity, with fresh apples, herbal hops and grainy with an obvious yeast character.

The taste was very dry, maybe even a little bit sour, but fruity, lots of grains and light herbal. Well balanced ale.

It is a medium bodied ale with a lot of carbonation that fits the style (Duvel invented). It's dry and the alcohol is only slightly noticeable.

Overall it is a great beer. On a hot day it is very refreshing but be aware of the high ABV...

Crystal clear straw color with a great head in my Duvel tulip glass. Very dry beer that betrays the alcohol level a bit especially upon first taste. First aromas positive and clean with hint of apple but after the head died down a bit I picked up some alcohol aroma.

Good carbonation that lasts throughout the drinking experience.

Over all, I enjoyed this a lot, high quality beverage here.
