Brewed by:
Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat NV

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Aroma: Bready yeast

Appearance: Big white head lots of carbonation, hazy straw body.

Flavor: Slight fruity apple, bread, yeasty.

Mouthfeel: Light body with heavy carbonation which drys out your mouth quickly. Almost leaves a similar feeling like biting into a sour apple, kind of a tart dryness.

Overall: Great beer, clean and light with a nice alcohol warming at end, perfect San Diego winter beer, hot during day crispness and alcohol to warm you in the cool evening.
