Duvel is a 100% pure and natural beer, with no additives or preservatives. And you can instantly taste the difference. Its surprisingly high alcohol content (8.5%), huge, creamy head, delicate effervescence and silky smooth mouth feel is what distinguishes Duvel from other Belgian beers.
With its subtly bitter bite and delicate aroma, Duvel holds a unique position within the rich Belgian beer tradition. After bottling, the beer continues to ferment for a fortnight after bottling in the warm cellars of the brewery. Finally, the beer is chilled for 6 weeks in the cold cellars. This extra long maturing process is unique and contributes to the exquisite flavour and pure aroma of Duvel.
Duvel is bottled in a robust, brown, rounded bottle. The reason for this is to protect the beer from the harmful effects of photo-oxidation. If exposed to sunlight, the beer’s flavour would rapidly degenerate.
The most important quality control to which the matured beer is subjected remains the daily tasting by a team of specialists. Only then, after a brewing process that takes 90 days, is the beer released. At our brewery, patience and time are essential virtues. It is a beer brewed with the utmost patience and passion. Drink it with love.
Duvel is from the Moortgat Brewery in Belgium.
