The flagship beer of the Duvel Moortgat brewery, Duvel is widely considered the definitive example of the Belgian Strong Pale Ale style. Duvel pours a slightly hazy straw color with a cloud-like long lasting white head. Aromas are of clove, pepper, spice, with yeast in the background. Flavours are complementary to the aromas with a firm hop bitterness, solid malt profile and alcohol warmth. A cleansing crispness makes this Strong Pale Ale almost too drinkable!
Duvel is brewed by Duvel Moortgat (founded in 1871)--a family-owned brewery located in Belgium. The yeast strain used in the beer still stems from the original culture of Scottish yeast that was bought by Albert Moortgat during a business tour of the U.K. just after World War I.
