Duvel, ‘devil’ in Flemish, is brewed using a 90 day process: malted barley with Saaz hops from the Czech Republic and Styrian Golding hops from Slovenia. Yeast cultured from the original Scottish strain selected by Victor Moortgat in 1918. Prolonged lagering and seconday fermentation in the bottle.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 13/08/2012

Appearance

(sample bottle best before Mar-20) Hazy, light sandy golden with huge white head leaving heavy lacing.

Aroma

Yeasty, spicy and bready with cracked black pepper alcohol, apple skin and pear.

Taste

Full-bodied. Herbal, spicy, fruity, yeasty and grainy – all served with a bittersweetness and a balanced whack of alcohol.

Aftertaste

Barley, yeast and spice with lingering sweet black pepper tingle.

Overall

One of the world's great and noble beers. Huge in every respect, including a whopping 8.5% alc./vol., yet balanced and subtle.
