Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
A Duvel is still seen as the reference among strong golden ales. Its bouquet is lively and tickles the nose with an element of citrus which even tends towards grapefruit thanks to the use of only the highest-quality hop varieties. This is also reflected in the flavour, which is beautifully balanced with a hint of spiciness. Thanks to its high CO2 content, this beer has a wonderful roundness in the mouth. A Duvel is both the perfect thirst quencher and the ideal aperitif.

Outstanding blonde ale. Arguably a standard setter for the genre. Wonderful.

Simply brilliant , especially for the price point! Pours a beautiful golden colour with large frothy head and fantastic lacing. Smells a bit of pine and yeast with citrus notes. Taste is a bit malty with noticeable yeastiness, a nice hoppy but sweet tang to it and extremely crisp. Very thirst quenching and great mouth feel which does not feel like it is an 8.5% beer; quite a bit tingly on the tongue thanks to the large amount of carbonation. All in all an absolutely brilliant beer and a regular go to for me, especially in the summer.
