COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a 9.4% abv gold colored Belgian. We really focused on making a dry champagne like finish to this beer. The Belgian yeast character is the star in this ale with peppery aromas backed with a dried citrus fruit character. This beer drinks like it is 6% abv so be careful. The name is a nod to the great Belgian Golden Strong ale Duvel which means devil.

Pours a nice golden yellow golden color with 1 finger head, nose is not intense but has that Belgian character with some clove, banana peel, mouthfeel is surprisingly light to medium bodied for the high abv, no heat or burn on this, could be dangerous for sure, a nice American take on a Belgian style, quite nice

scotchzombie (571) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Hazy gold with fast fading white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, lemon, cloves. Quite dry in the palate with yeast, cloves, esters, bready malts. Some bitterness out the back. Did I say dry? Still, this is a nice, potent, less sweet Belgian Golden. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
