Translated from "Babel" pub’s website: Duel is inspired by the "duel" between two hop varieties: american grown Cascade, with its clear citrussy sensations, and Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand, with its bold fruity notes. It’s an amber coloured craft beer, unpasteurised, produced with selected ingredients. Light amber in colour, fruity, intense and fragrant on the nose. Hints of exotic fruits and white grapes gently mix with citrussy notes. The flavour follows the nose. It’s fresh, very drinkable and balanced. Leaves a natural sediment in the bottle. Best served at 8°-10°C

On Tap @ "Babel" pub, Candelo [BI], Italy. As far as I know, this beer is produced by brewer Enrico Terzo [Birrificio Un Terzo, in Candelo] only for this pub, both in bottle and on tap. Nice off-white head, excellent head retention [they use a small precentage of wheat in the recipe], lasts until the end of the glass. Amber orange in colour. Nose is a real duel, citrus from the Cascade and white grapes from the Nelson Sauvin, they do not blend harmoniously. The body is almost oily, goes down very smoothly, with a nice round bitterness. The tropical fruit hints come out in the aftertaste, even though it doesn’t last lng, and it leaves your mouth very dry and wanting more. Available in a 33 cl glass only, unfortunately.
