COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Duvil in Miss Jones is a Sour Belgian Golden Ale. Brewed as an homage to the world-class Duvel, but with a twist, as in a lemony acidity that provides just enough tartness without being overbearing. The tart notes also help mask the alcohol, at 8.5% ABV.

We cellared this brew for 2 years after bottling, releasing it at the Winter Solstice Celebration this past December 2014.

Drake (9544) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle courtesy of mikem409 and shared at the 17th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 1/28/12. Pours a hazy straw color with a thin tan head that fades quickly. Aroma of sweet malts, yeast and an almost corny note, The taste is big tropical fruits, yeast, and bread. Definite canned fruit quality, which I canít stand. Medium bodied. Disappointed by this one.

Light gold, decent head, Richnond 17th. Lightly sour citrus aroma. Flavor is a match. Not bad, but didnít do much either.

Sampled at the Richmond 17th Gathering. 2011. Slightly hazy gold pour with good ring of whtie head. Slightly lemony sweet nose. A little sweet funk on the flavor. Good orange zest on the tail. Crisp. Pretty good.

Dogbrick (8907) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Clear dark golden pour with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Short stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of peppery yeast and caramel malt. Medium body with flavors of yeast, pepper, wheat and malt. The finish is sweet with a yeast and fruit aftertaste. As a Duvel clone it falls short, but still a decent brew.

hivemind (716) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Tap at Pony with Streets and Paul last night. Pours light orange/amber. Not much of an aroma. Some dried fruit, belgian yeast and surprising bitterness on the palate. Not a huge fan, but it wasnít bad.

Growler. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Yeasty clove aroma with pale malt aromas. Flavor is quite yeasty, bubble gum and clove, with pale malts, some hoppy citrus, herbal and pear flavors. Quite a nice homage to Duvel.

Kuhnhenn duvil in ms. jones. 12oz bottle thanks to Tooch... Pours a semi-hazy apple cider brown and topped with a thin soapy white head... Aroma is sweet and buttery with sugary butterscotch caramel malt... Sweet caramel and toffee, sweet and esthery overall, which unfortunately has somewhat of a diacetyl bent to it. medium to slightly full bodied with adequate carbonation. didnít really do it for me and makes me want to try duvel again as i remember liking that much more. not much of a wow factor but maybe thatís what they were trying to shoot for. 5/3/5/3/10
