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.

Has a crisp apple smell almost like a cider. Nicely carbonated and pours a big frothy head. Golden yellow colour with lots of bubbles. It tastes a bit like champagne. Tangy. Actually a lot like white wine.. without so much of the sweetness. The 8.5% ABV has no where to hide, it's right up front. I would use this beer as a wine substitute in seafood recipes.

Stubby bottle best before 05 2014 into a Duvel twolip.
Beautiful golden color with a big white head. Lots of bubbles racing to the top. Splotchy lacing stays behind. Head sticks around for the ride.
Smells sweet and spicy with apples, banana, grass and funk.
Has some spicy yeast to the taste. There is more going on that I can't really pick out, but I just know I like it. So smooth and crisp. Leaves a pleasant aftertaste.

This is a perfect beer. Towering head poured into Duvel tulip, aroma is soft and sweet, hay and grass. Taste is caramel, butterscotch, bread. Absolutely delicious!
