A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #30 – Duvel

Duvel – a Belgium Strong ale. I went the family sized 750Ml bottle of 8.5% ABV beer.

It’s hard  to be expecting anything other than magnificent from this beer. It comes with a reputation and a promise.

And it’s in a big bottle. And It’s been one of those weeks, and frankly I deserve this.

Hazy, White head, fluffy, snappy,  and from the reviews this is solid but not spectacular as Belgium Beers go.

For trick beer you have to undo the cage and pop the cork, all part of the experience , and then set in for an hour or so of taste sensation. This is almost Albino Pale, and it really does get a head on. It might be that I don’t own a “tulip” but I was impressed and amused at my result.

I thought this was a tad  ‘sour’ as taste goes. Not really sure what it is I am tasting, it’s grassy. (and here I pause to contemplate ‘grassy’).

It’s almost a bit the opposite of what I expected which was a richer longer taste, and that’s confusing.

It does have a myriad of flavor in this, and begs for a food to go with it, so I’m going to pause and get the blue cheese out.

On the arbitrary pdubyah-o-meter for some arbitrary stars out of an arbitrary number I’d give this a 3.5 out of 5 which is fairly solid and not a disgrace, which I might be after drinking what essentially is a wine bottle‘s worth of beer.
