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.

From bottle into Chimay Chalice.

A: Golden yellow ale color. Hazy. Sticky head that starts at a finger and a half and ends as a finger of sticky head that laces throughout.

S: Normal Belgian yeasts. Bready yeasts. Slight citrus. Banana. Cereal?

T: Alcohol hits early. Lots of banana, Belgian yeasts, bready.

M: Medium bodied. Wonderful carbonation.

O: Again, Belgium gets me going. I don't know that this could be better in some respects. Scent to taste ratio could be much better. Had this right after having a Piraat. Mistake.
