Duvel has a medium, white, cream soda-like head and a hazy golden-yellow appearance, with some lacing, lots of streaming bubbles, and fine particles floating throughout. Some little light-brown yeast chunks are also there. The aroma is of white wheat bread, spice, citrus, sugar, and white grapes. Taste is of white wheat bread, sugar, spices, citrus juice, and white wine. One can also pick up a subtle alcohol presence. This is nicely rounded with hops. It’s very fizzy and mimosa like. The body is light to medium, and Duvel finishes crisp, refreshing, and highly drinkable. This is excellent.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass.

This beer poured a nice slightly hazy golden yellow. The head was huge and white and lingered for a long time. It was very fluffy and filled with air-bubbles. The head and beer left good lacing during the drinking process. The aroma was very sweet an slightly banana-ish. The flavor is sweet at first which in turn yields to a booze factor and then fades back into a candy sweet aftertaste. The beer is fruity and satisfying. The mouthfeel is pretty high in carbonation and lighter in body. The high carbonation is the biggest downfall in my opinion.

This is a good Belgian Pale Ale. It is interestingly fruity with a little bit of complexity, just enough to keep it interesting.

We had our neighborhood world beer tasting soiree last night and we tried the Duvel Belgian Golden Ale. The beer poured a straw yellow with a large foamy white head that laces. The smell includes alcohol, cracker, light grass. The taste carries belgium malt and lemon grass zing power the taste. The mouthfeel is big bodied with massive carbonation. The alcohol content make this a tough beer.
