I maintain that it is the best, most accessible beer in the world. They export to 40 countries. When I was in Amsterdam, after trudging through the beer wastelands of Spain and Italy, I thought it was a another local bud clone at first, because every bar in Amsterdam has Duvel signs, umbrellas, etc. But it is actually a world-class beer. And somehow it's still family-owned. Simply amazing.

I love it, but at $15 a 4 pack I don't buy it often.

A great way to break into the belgians. It's got a lot of the typical belgian flavor from the yeast, but is rather dry. One of my personal favs.

The only problem with Duvel is the way it sneaks up on you, (Belgian for Devil) if that's really a problem. Great beer!

AHS's Devil's Brew, a Duvel-alike, is one of my go to brews.

Perhaps the best part about Duvel is how cheap it is to create a close clone. 10% of the retail cost in fact
