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.

Enjoyed at Bricco in Akron.

A: What an amazing head on this beer. Cottony and big. It tickled my upper lip during the drink and lingered though the entire glass. Beautiful lace. The color was a very light gold.

S: Apple skins, pectin, raisins. Warm yeasty Italian bread. Strong aroma without being pungent.

T: There is that apple again. The nose will give you every hint of what this beer will taste like. Think of everything an IPA should be with a kick of fruity sweetness.

M: Champaign bubbly and light/medium body. Very crisp and would be perfect for a summer's day.

D: A real joy to drink. Up there with La Fin Du Monde and slowly making Belgian Strong Pale Ale's the drinks for me. I almost considered a 5.0 for this one.
