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.

UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 [Bottle, 2011 / 2 years old] Moderately hazy, golden-amber body with a quickly fading white head. Aroma is mild with notes of lightly tart wheat, lemon, light orange zest, grass, yeast, bread, & musty spice. Taste is actually a little sour with some wheat, lemon, Belgian yeast & spices, & a little bit of white pepper. Itís like a lightly soured version of Duvel. Sour, dry wheat & yeast finish with a touch of must. I assume some of the sourness wasnít as present fresh, but itís actually quite nice.

Live rate: 14 karat pour with a razor thin white head that leaves quickly. Nose of Belgian yeast, candied fruit, peppery spice and honey baked biscuit. Flavor similar...quite sweet with lots of caramel & toffee. High ABV is a bit noticeable.

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.
