Duvel’s Golden Ale

When it comes to beer, Duvel is absolutely one of my favorites. It’s light, crisp with a perfectly “skunky” finish. The first time I had it, post first sip I wasn’t impressed but a few seconds later I was thinking “holy cow” that’s nice. We have so many draft beers on the market these days that it doesn’t make it on a lot of beer menus but if you spot it, you must try it. It’s a Belgian beer that is served in it’s own glass. It takes 90 days to brew and they unapologetic-ally provide instructions on how to store, pour, and drink their special golden ale. Perfect for the summer.

A Duvel is still seen as the reference among more full-bodied 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.
