Beer Review: Duvel
Ok, so I've been away for a bit. Truth is I was giving my liver a minute to heal after the awesome beer tasting we had at Steins Deli. What an incredible event!! For those who are local and missed out we will have more so stay tuned.
I was thinking it had been a long time since I had a Duvel and all I truly remember about it was that it was a great beer. I decided to revisit and review it. On to the review!
Brewery: Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat NV
Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale
Recommended Glassware: Snifter, Tulip or Oversized Wine Glass
Serving Type: Snifter
Appearance: This beer poured a golden straw color with a very foamy looking white head. Lacing was present throughout.
Smell: Had a nice yeast funk smell with hints of lemon and candied sugar.
Taste: Had a nice citrus flavor with a tart/sour green apple flavor. A nice hint of hops as well is evident in the finish as is the 8.5% alcohol.
Mouthfeel: A nice and light body with medium high carbonation.
Overall: WOW. This is a damn good beer. Very drinkable
Score: 4.5 out of 5 Buddhas
