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.

330mL poured into Duvel tulip

A- Crystal clear yellow with a monster three finger white head, a classy looker.
S- Slightly bitter, tons of pilsner tastes, a little sweet, almost as if theres honey in it. Slight hint of citrus
T- Citrus flavors up front, Followed by a slight bitterness and an alcohol aftertaste.
M- Lots of carbonation and a unique mouth feel. Somewhat easy to take down but leaves you with a lot of foam in your mouth.
O- I bought a few of these mainly because I wanted the glass that came with it and to cross Duvel off my list. Glad I tried it and its good under the right conditions but its just a try once beer for me.
