Duvel Belgian Golden Ale

Bottle Conditioned, Pour Unhurriedly

Bottle Conditioned, Pour Unhurriedly

This piddle-yellow brew is slightly hazy and floats a big, fluffy white head.  Duvel is well carbonated and lively looking, the bouquet is sweet, tart, doughy and yeasty.  It is tart on the tongue and somewhat light bodied. There is a slight citrus note in the finish, and an almost sweet, dessert-like finish.  Not a strong alcohol presence despite it’s 8.5 ABV.  It retains it’s head to the bottom of the glass, but doesn’t leave much lacing.  I’d call it a good introduction to the style.
