Duvel (DOO-VIL, not pronounced DU-VELL) pours golden with a huge fluffy white head. Duvel is basically a super-pilsner with plenty of yeast and snap in every sip. Very drinkable and very powerful - two of these in a half hour might put you in the spins.

Some notes of apple, great lacing in the goblet and good carbonation throughout. A champion beer.

This is my favorite beer in the whole world! From the minute you open it you know it is different - huge carbonation (if you are not careful it will explode when you open it). You then have to carefully pour it into a glass or it will overhead and spill out the top. You then look at it and it will be a golden color bubbling up much like champagne.

Then the real fun comes with the taste. It is a perfect tasting beer with a bit of citrus flavor and goes down so smooth. Just remember with the large head you will get a beer mustache!
