Ah yes Duvel!  I first had Duvel when I started working in Brussels – we were frequent visitors to the James Tavern in Rue de Commerce in Brussels.  I had a few of these one night and didn’t know what had hit me!  This is a light beer easy to drink but strong at 8.5%.  Should be drunk in a globe type glass which is slightly flared at the top – I didn’t have one so had to use a chunky wine like glass, should have used a Palm glass (I’ll get round to Palm when I find some in the UK or get over to Belgium again) but I forgot I had them.  I love the taste which belies it’s strength, ideal first beer after work.

I’ve never seen this or tasted it but now you can get Duvel on draught, let me know where in London and I’ll give it a go.
