Belgian Strong Pale Ale

Like a Belgian Pale Ale, the strong versions will also be pale straw to deep golden in color. What sets them apart is a much higher alcohol content that can range from deliciously hidden to devastatingly present. Expect a complex and powerful ale, yet delicate with rounded flavors and a big, billowy, rocky, white head. Hop and malt character can vary, although most are fruity and quite hoppy. In general, hop flavor and aroma will be within the low range and artfully balanced. Duvel is the hallmark of this style, and many other breweries have tried to imitate Duvel Moortgat's quintessential example with similar references to the devil.

ABV: 7.0–12.0% | IBU: 20–40 | Glassware: Goblet (or Chalice)
