Both the missus and i have been busy completing assignments for work courses, and this has eaten a bit into my posting time. As a nurse you'd think i've been learning about new wound dressings, medications, or care pathways but it was business improvement, root cause analysis and cost/benefit analysis all the way. Modern NHS huh!!
I did though manage to do a little beer shopping and quoff a few decent beers.
I think most beer people now about Duvel, either they've drunk it, read about it or seen it on a supermarket shelf somewhere. Certainly people are drinking it, the company recorded profits up a fifth last year, mostly exports.
I have had it before, but saw a tantilising 75cl bottle, corked top, it looked majestic. Sold to the man who should know better.
Its 8.5%, a golden strong Belgium beer, and pours with a lovely huge frothy white head. By the time I'd finished faffing around with my camera this had diminished a bit in this shot, but it still looks enticing i feel.
Quite carbonated but it fills your mouth smoothly and fully. Golden yellow in colour, its aroma is apple, yeast, and spicy. Its taste is citrus, a powerful but not overly powerful alcohol kick, pear too. It dries your mouth nicely, its so drinkable, and its one you should definitely try if you've never drunk one.
