Serving Type: 330 mL Bottle

A- Light, cloudy yellow colour, probably the palest beer i've seen to date. Slight orange tint. Topped with a lumpy white two-finger head. Simply beautiful.

S- Soft spice, slight citrus (orange peel) character. Sweet malt backbone.

T- Extremely soft citrus and slightly spicy in nature. Yeasty notes in the background with a little hint of pilsner-like malt.

M- Aggressive carbonation. Definitely more carbonation than I was expecting but I suppose the notation of 'bottle conditioned' makes up for that. Smooth and creamy on the palate.

O- I can easily say that Duvel is one of the best beers that i've tried. It's not only a great looking beer, but it is a pleasure to the nose and palate. Two thumbs up. Totally recommend that anyone who comes across Duvel to try it.

Post Bottle Note: This beer is deceptively strong. Tread carefully, beer bros.
