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.

Ferris (16488) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Draft - Fruit esters, green apple and golden malts with a touch yeast. Pale gold and a thin white head. Pale malt sweetness, lots of yeast and booze. Not my style.

3.9
Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of big phenolic spice, stone fruits, yeast, bready malts. The taste is caramel and bready malts, spice, mild fruits. Medium bodied.

3.8
hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2016
330ml bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Belgian yeastiness, peppery, fruity and some citrus. Alcohol content well hidden.

4.1
DocLock (11020) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle via a PUB’R operative. Pours bright and hazy golden with 2-fingers of frothy, white head. Nose is yeasty florals, dry champagney notes, lemony fruit. Tastes champagney, with vibrant yeast and florals, hops, an overall dryness, and a beer that would give Duvel a run for its money in a blind taste test, I posit. My only beef is that, as for Devil or Satanic names, the Greek διάβολοc needs to be used more (although I would imagine that name would be a pain in the ass for label printers to print and beer sellers to pronounce), or even the better Asmodeus, although Asmodeus is an demi-demon rather than the Devil himself, and I know this because I am also an associate demon intern who sold his soul 25 years ago in exchange for an eidetic memory and super tasting and smelling powers. Thus was born Doc Lock, super hero of beerdom. Cheers.

alexsdad06 (10778) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Draft to snifter at Wicked Weed Funkatorium. Pours a hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have Belgian yeast, bready malts, mild citrus fruit character,, mild plus peppery spice, I would agree that this drinks much lighter than the abv, some stone fruit character, solid enough.

3.9
onceblind (10528) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Cloudy golden under a thick fluffy white head. Thick earthy musty Belgian nose with toast and chewy golden graininess. Smooth delightful malty flavor that’s bready and fluffy yeasty with a smooth gentle Belgian fruit and dusty ester. Delightful.

3.6
solidfunk (9407) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 25, 2016
Some florals and some coriander. Decent belgian golden strong. Golden pour. Sweet finish. Easy drinking. Bottle shared at tasting.

3.3
b3shine (9138) - Indiana, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Draft to taster at the Funkatorium. Looks good; a transparent gold with white head. Smells of a nice balance of Belgian yeast, wheat, and coriander. Tastes like it smells, but more balanced, with a medium-bodied mouthfeel. A solid witbier.
