Pours with a big white head, reminiscent of the normal Duvel. Not quite as persistent, but very good. Lots of bubbles from the carbonation. The smell is very mellow. One notices light fruits first, followed by a yeast. Alcohol is well masked. Taste is very pleasant. Again, light fruitiness followed by a bready taste. The mouthfeel is nothing special, but certainly not watery. Drinkability is good. I had this on a rare warm, sunny day in Antwerp, and it really hit the spot.

A: golden colour, nice foamy head, a bit on the small side, though

S: classic duvel smell, hint of lemon zest, some malts and hops

T: again lemon, hoppy finish

M: too thin, could be a bit dryer, you don't really feel the alcohol

O: it's a good slid beer, but i'd rather take a ordinary duvel. It's just better, I don't really see a place for this one. The fact it contains less alcohol really doesn't help it, as it isn't that noticeable, so it's actually more dangerous.

Incredibly reformulated version of the classic Duvel with a little less octane which heightens its drinkability. While it has a lower ABV it still retains the golden color, thick white head, light body, and crispness that everyone loves about the other.

Firstly, I note that this beer is rather "well aged". This review is written in the beginning of 2006, and the bottle has been aging here in Scandinavia for at least three years. Therefore this Gefilterd Speciaal Bier now again looks unfiltered.
A light yellow and cloudy beer, with a good, fine head.
In the light and frash nose I sense bread, honey and tropical fruit.
Bread and tropical fruit in the taste as well, and an overall soft mouthfeel, with an interesting, intense aftertaste of fresh honey.
It takes some minutes for this beer to open up, but the waiting time is fully rewarded...
Nice and fresh sipping beer

Poured on tap at Birch & Barley/Churchkey DC into a tulip glass.

A soupy like head with not much rock white retention sits. Clear bodied pale amber like in color with lots of very fast rising carbonation. Lacing on the glass leaves a stickyness quality spiderweb.

Nose is a small kind of candy like and Belgian yeast, the classic sense, a little small though.

Taste is interesting a mix of sour and sweet with an interesting malt sensation. Lemon as well easy on the palate, with a little bit of prickly carbonation also. Some chewy wheat like feel too with a hint of candied sugar.

Overall this is alright it actually reminds me of a much better version of Delirium Tremens.

On tap at St. Arnolds in DC. Poured into Belgian tulip glass. Pours light yellow and frothy two finger white head and retains lacing well throughout the drinking session. The clarity, active carbonation and condensation makes it sparkle in the glass. Springy hops aroma very evident with a little spruce and a light sweetness. Tastes like pils malt, pear, noble hop bitterness, with a slight tang. Not quite as full bodied as other Belgians I have tasted. Dry finish. Carbonation adds a great refreshing texture that compliments the light hoppy flavor well. This is perhaps a less harsher version of its bigger brother, Duvel.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A-This beer pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a thick mousy white head that last and last as a thick ring and is supported by a gentle carbonation of tiny bubbles.
S- This beer has a soft green hint with a pale malt note and a very light circus peanut hint. The finish is a light sulfury sweet hint.
T- This beer has a soft pale malt flavor with a soft nougat note and a clean crisp bite in the finish. There is a soft sulfury hint in the finish that turns a bit more tart as the beer warms.
M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a crisp finish and no alcohol heat.
D- This beer is very different from the aged Duvel. It has very faint hints of yeast characteristics and is a pretty clean lagered flavor. I don't know where it hides the 7.5 %ABV but its gone. Interesting to try but I will stick to the classic Duvel.

Duvel Gefilterd

Appearance: golden, medium-large head, and some good lacing.

Smell: grainy malt.

Taste: grains, very faint hops, and a slight maltiness.

Mouthfeel: medium and smooth.

Overall:
This has a great feel to it. The flavor is ok and nothing more than an average pilsner. The mouthfeel is great and smooth.

25cl bottle purchased at De Bier Koning in Amsterdam, NL.

A- Pours a yellow/blonde color, some yeasty haze, lots of lively carbonation and big white head.

S- More refined than its older brother, less spices, less pungent hops more balanced. Definitely get a bit of citrus and bread as well.

T- I think is better than the regular Duv, again its more controlled, not so extreme on the spices and bitter hops. This beer also did not mess with my stomach the way a regular Duvel now does to me.

M- Light/Medium, very crisp and really pleasure to drink

D- Excellent

you're only going to find this guy in Europe but if by chance you find a case here in the US. buy the whole thing and trade with me!

Came from the tap at Moan and Dove. The drink had a pale, clear yellow color with a patchy had and thin lacing. Aromas offered a herby tone with a floral, biscuit flavor. The drink had a bittersweet mixture with a citrus, apricot flavor. Hints of bread and yeast were also sensed. Really, really good carbonation. Aided in making the drink light but crisp. Overall, not too bad at all.

Green Duvel (Duvel for girls), 25 cl bottle, 7% abv (as stated on the bottle).

A: It looks very clear, pale golden, with a duvel-like fluffy head, and massive carbonation.
S: Quite similar to the regular one: bready, hoppy, slightly citrus, cloves, floral notes. pleasant yeast.
T: Hop, malty, cloves. Also several fruits: banana, lemon, slightly bitter aftertaste. Flavours are not massive, but it's balanced.
M: Very smooth and easy on the palate.
D: Very drinkable. it's tasty, and the alcohol is easily hidden by the flavours.
