Your response rate should go up if you make a complete, and well-written, survey, and post the link.
I'll humor you because I'm a few hours away from a 3-day weekend+music festival.

1) Duvel was a great gateway beer to drinking more craft. However, I don't see myself buying it any time soon (or not). So many other options to try (both locally produced and shipped in). Plus trading.
2) If Duvel was produced in the US and the quality did not change, cool. Still wouldn't buy it right now. IF quality suffered, I'd be disappointed for D-M co. and 100% never buy it again (instead of my current 99%).

3) Cans are better for the reasons quirkzoo said.
3) Superior package. Lighter in weight, no light penetration, better oxygen protection...
Cans can be brought more places, packed into a box or fridge much better (being shorter helps) and so on. The downside is I don't think you can age canned beer as well as in a bottle. That sounds like a good experiment.

We have discussed the physical package on here before. Using simple terms, Bottles have a higher fracture point, cans have a lower deformation puncture point. Bottles won't puncture, cans won't fracture. Bottles have a fragile neck and bottom. Cans will deform but not break til a lot of pressure. Bottles can break from sudden impact, but it takes quite a bit to squeeze one to break.

The general can vs. bottle reasons and plenty of persons' opinion on this topic are out there, I'd suggest googling this before descending into the Mos Eisley of beer.
