Duvel 18cl

Available: In stock


Duvel is one of Belgium's most renowned beers. This blond top fermentation beer is the flagship of Brewery Duvel-Moortgat. It was launched in its current form in 1970 and was one of the very first beers to be drunk from a tulip-shape glass. Duvel has a pale golden color and a nice, white head. It has a light and fruity aroma, a subtle dry and hoppy flavor. A real thirst-quencher with an alcohol content of 8.5%.

The brewing process of Duvel starts off with little more barley than for a regular pils beer, but by adding glucose before the main fermentation, this beer has the clarity of a pils beer, but a much stronger alcohol content. Duvel owes its unique character to the use of particular yeast strains, which were carefully selected in the 1970’s when the beer was launched. After the brewing process, the beer is filtered and another yeast strain gets added, together with some sugar, so that the beer can re-ferment in the bottle.

The success of Duvel has inspired many other breweries to make similar beers. Sloeber, Judas and Satan Gold are a few of them. This type of beer is commonly referred to as ‘golden ale’.  Every year, a special edition Duvel is launched: Duvel Tripel Hop. That beer is based on the regular Duvel, but contains a third type of hop.

All beers are shipped in professional, DHL-approved, triple-walled cardboard boxes, where all bottles are separated from each other to prevent them from hitting against each other during transport
First of all, you should bear in mind that during transport the bottles might have been thrown around quite a bit and that it’s not a good idea to drink them immediately. We advise you to let the bottles rest in an upright position in a dark and cool place for at least 48 hours. This will allow the yeast to sink to the bottom of the bottle again, and it will also prevent an outburst of foam when you open them. Beers are best kept in an upright position (to make sure the yeast residue remains at the bottom) and in a dark and cool a cool place. (The ideal temperature is 10-12°C (50-55°F) and it is also important the temperature remains as stable as possible.) It is best to drink all beers before the expiry date mentioned on the bottle.  Some brewers, however, mention the bottling date rather than the expiry date on their bottles.
