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.

Cork pops off with ease, beer pours clear pale golden yellow with a glacier of white head and clumpy lacing.

Fruity yeast and apples dominate aroma. Juicy fruit, gummy candy, skunk, esters, banana, tinge of alcohol, leafy hops, cereal grain.

Lightly sweet grains again in check with dominant yeast. Overly ripened fruits, mealy pear, welcomed alcohol, quick hit of bitterness as yeast flavors fade. Smooth ester aftertaste.

Body could be the best part of this beer. Feel is nearly burning with carbonation. Substantial, just big enough, satisfying.

Any beer lover should try Duvel. Go on...
