Duvell adn Duvel Singl
« on: November 17, 2012, 05:16:07 PM »
About once every 2 or three weeks I stop and get a 4 pack of Duvel. Just love that beer. Easy drinking, lemon like refreshing hop character, dry enough to make it a thirst quencher even at 8.5% ABV and a rocky head unparalleled by just about any other beer. It's become my answer to "pilsner drinking" in some ways.

Really wish we could get the Duvel single in bottles, I really love that beer as well and order it on draft at my local.

Just thought I sing the praises of a well done and often under appreciated beer.

An awesome and sneaky beer to be sure. Wish it wasn't so gosh darn expensive though. A 750ml here is 12.99...

yeah, that seems a little steep for sure. I looked for 750 ml today and couldn't find them. Can't recall the price of the 4 pack but it's a splurge. I have more Yellowhammer beer on hand then I can drink, but I do get tired of drinking my beer all the time.

Have you tried the single? I love that beer. Wish I could find it in bottles.

Ooops. Just found my second glass is empty. Might need to save the other two for football tomorrow.

Is it different? No re-fermentation?

The Duvel Single is a different beer. Like a "Duvel Light". I've only ever had it on draft but it's really tasty and easy drinking.

+1, Duvel Single is an excellent beer, but I've only ever seen it on draft.   Mmmm, mussels and duvel single.

It was designed specifically as a kegged beer so I wouldn't expect to see it bottled.

It's about $15 a four pack here.

I used to go to this bar that had it for $5.  At bar prices, that's a steal.

The beer itself is damn delicious and I'm always willing to drink it.

Never seen the singel

Isn't that disgraceful? I remember when it was less than $6- and not too long ago. Wonder if it is less expensive in other parts of the country?
