I thought I'd try and talk about a beer each week on my blog, since I'm basically in beer paradise here.

This week's: Duvel, a Belgian beer. The name means devil in Flemish, perhaps in reference to its high alcohol content of 8.5% ABV. It is the definative version of a Belgian Stong Pale Ale and is brewed with Pilsner malt and white sugar and hopped with two things that make no sense to me, so I'm not copying them from wikipedia right this second.

Taken in Maastricht.

Duvel has been in production since 1871 and is distributed to over 40 countries. If you look my photograph closely, you might notice that it has a shit ton of head. If you're American, you might think that I don't know how to pour a beer. Quite on the contrary, that's just how the Duvel rolls and I like it. You can drink it at that state or wait 'till it disintigrates a little, either way it's tasty and powerful.

Great description! I don't remember that Belgian beer. I guess I didn't hang out in the right places! Love, Mom
