Aroma: Slight yeastiness on the nose backed by citrus notes.
Taste: Light, quite a creamy length with a lively front. Mild yeast and breadiness. A very interesting beer as the bubbles and slight acidity give way to a creamy length. Hops are nicely balanced, not overdone and leaves slight bitterness on the aftertaste. Finishes very dry. This is a beer primarily concerned with texture. Interesting and remarkably smashable (9.5)
Duvel beats the Beechworth Pale Ale. But I feel that they are very different beers. The Duvel is a premium beer (with a premium price tag) to be drunk at a long wooden table in a fancy glass. The Beechworth Pale is to be drunk by the 6 pack out in the sun.
So winner is Duvel, but if the Beechworth Pale Ale held home court advantage (eg. at the beach) I think it could pull out the victory.
WineChatty was created as a way for organizing themed wine tastings with friends around the world. Similar idea to book clubs and photography assignments, but with wines! It's a way of exploring and finding new wines that you might not have tried before.
