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.

A: Straw body with lines of visible carbonation. Thin white head. It foamed over a touch when opened but barely any lost. It looks a bit like champagne.

S: Apples pour from the lip of the glass. Tripel underpinnings. Amazing aroma.

T: Great flavor. I am very impressed. Again, very tripel like but not nearly as much spice as some tripels have. Apples and sweetness. Smooth as silk.

M: Great mouthfeel. Super silky with just a touch of carbonation on the tongue.

D: Even with some age on the bottle, an amazing beer all around. Belgium does know how to do it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: clear golden yellow in color with a short 1/2" head. No lacing develops during the session.

Smell: lemon zest, yeast, and some grassiness are pleasant on the nose.

Taste: nice mild bready malt profile. Yeast, lemon citrus, some bits of grass, and a decent bitterness round it out. Alcohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel: crisp from start to finish. Medium bodied beer. Aftertaste is is short-lived.

Drinkability: this one is easy to quaff and somewhat refreshing despite the style. Less spiciness than the standard Duvel and a bit more bready.

Bottle at Mondial 2008, paid up the ass for it but worth it.

Pours a cloudy pale straw yellow, thick white head forms, drops some nice lacing, retains a decent layer, looks good. Smell is nice, sweet malts, some honey, spice, light straw/wheaty character, some floral and citrus, bit of yeast, fresher aroma than the Duvel, more hopping. Taste is similar, sweet and malty front, some yeast, crackers, spice, very fruity, floral and herbal finish, light flavour but nice. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation, very smooth and easy to drink. Similar to normal Duvel but I found this easier to drink and more refreshing.

First thing to note is that this review might be a little bit too harsh. This is a super drinkable, wonderfully flavored beer that has survived a trip back from France, after all.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a thin, whispy, tenacious white head with tight bubbles and nice lacing.

Great aroma brimming with bready, biscuit malt suffusing a warm, spicy, phenolic bloom of light fruit and clove. There's some earthy hop spice as well.

Taste is more of the same, well balanced, early/mid-palate sweetness drops off into a clean bitterness.

Mouthfeel is smooth and easy, effervescent and bright. Could use a bit more carbonation.

Extremely easy to drink, some late alcohol warmth clouds the pictures a bit.

Simple... you love Duvel, you'll love (or at least like) this.

Pours out a clear light straw with a huge bright white filling head. Goes down very smooth, but not as smooth as I had hoped. Dry profile. Balance is well done: not too hoppy and not too malty. Slightly spicey and a touch of yeasty. This is the simple Duvel. Lacks the complex profile of the original, but that is not for sure to be a bad thing. A great beer worth snagging when you see it.
