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.

Was waiting a long time to try this beer and all I'm left with I'm dissapoinent.

Appearance - pale yellow somewhat cloudy with a lot of head

Smell - bread and yeast dominate the smell.

Taste - it starts out more like a sparking wine then finishes more like a triple.

Mouthfeel - high carbonation. Too much for a beer like this in my opinion. Not as 'chewy' as I expected.

Overall - for the cost I have had many Ales that would blow the doors off Duvel. For 15.00/4 pack I'm expecting much more.
