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.

Smoothest macro brew out there and feels nice and warm after one bottle. Doesn’t drink like it’s over 8 percent. Tastes and smells very yeasty but not in a bad way. If you’ve seen my delirium tremendous review then you know how I thought that Belgian triple tasted like bud light or natty ice. This actually embodies a nice belgian. 3.8/5
Down scored because let’s face it... it won’t hold up to the greatest in the world and beers like trillium are my barometer. For a beer that is easy to find in the store... A+

Straw yellow. Frothy head strong lacing.

Lemon, bread, spice notes.

Banana bread, belgian spices, lemon.

Light to medium bodied. ABV is deceiving. Dry sweet finish.

A classic.

Slight banana hint and nice citus upfront. 11.00 for a 4 pack is a turn off though.
