Why would you want to add pears to a perfectly good beer?!

Because the clone recipe called for 4 oz of pear flavoring, and I don't do artificial flavors. They taste fake in which they are

I admit I did go over the top with 11#, next time I will only use 6#

I have seen a number of recipes with pears, pear extract and all the malt additions but I really can't see the point. The right yeast (& temps), belgian pils and some sugar get you on the mark.

I really due pick up on the Commercial Duvel qualities ,the yeast is "zingy with huge head, the grain and mouthfeel is nice and crisp and dry. But to tell you the truth as I continue to drink it I seem to belive (as mentioned before) the pears are a little over powering.

I dont even know if I will use the pears next time (don't let me confuse you, it is good...but), I actually saved a gallon without pears added.

I put it in a old handmade ceramic jug I found in my grandpas basement (house is over a 100 years old. I cleaned it with b-clean, sanatized it 3 times, added a little extract and found a cork that fits perfectly, hammered that sucker in and as of now I have to wait for it to carbonate itself and I will try it and let ya know how it is.

I really can't see Duvel using pears.
I just looked in my copy of "Brew Like a Monk" and saw the recipe:

DUVEL
OG: 1.069 IBU:30
Malt:
83% Pilsener malt blend
17% Dextrose
Hops:
Styrian Goldings
Saaz
Yeast: Duvel
White Labs say that WLP570 originated from Duvel, WYeast say 1338 also did. Pitch at 62F and allow yeast to rise naturally during fermentation to around +72F.

Just because you need pear flavoring doesn't mean you need to use artificial flavoring.
