Easy drinking, hoppy Belgian lager from the Duvel Moortgat Brewery near Antwerp.
A blonde, light, well-hopped beer with a smooth malty character, subtly balanced hops and a lingering fruitiness overlaying the delicate notes of vanilla.
With a rich history dating back to 1871, Belgium's Duvel-Moortgat, who are based south of Antwerp, was only saved from closure in 1970s when it agreed to distribute a rival Danish beer. The brewery has gone from strength to strength since and was an early investor in the craft beer scene in America. Apart from their well regarded label Duvel, Moortgat owe much of their recent success to acquisitions within Europe and America with the purchase of Brasserie D'Achouffe, De Koninck and Boulevard Brewing Company, Kansas to name only a few. Other iconic beers from this brewery include Maredsous abbey ales and Vedett.
