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.

Hard to rate as I have encountered problems recently. Two cases recently have each contained several bottles which were bad. You can tell them as soon as opened - they start to overflow the bottle, and are so over-carbonated you can barely get them into a glass. Taste is nasty too. Rest of bottles in case are fine. I would rate 5 if not for the bad ones.
