Duvel Belgian Golden Ale


The Belgians are certainly known for unique beers, a great brewing history, and Duvel is high on that list. Crisp and golden white a very aggressive white head, don’t let the appearance fool you into expecting something light and watery. The first thing I notice in the smell is apple and some hops bite. It’s full and dry on the tongue, with sour fruit at the back end. Very well balanced between malt and spicy hops, and there is a lot of both. I’m also getting a late alcohol warmth, and at 8.5% ABV, that is expected, but you’d never guess it’s that high.

Here is proof that a light colored, fizzy beer can have tons of flavor. This is one to seek out
