Belgian Golden Ale


Belgian Golden Ale as exemplified by Duvel of the Moortgat Brewery near Brussels, Belgium.

This is a top fermented ale, using an ale yeast, but with modern technologies employed to produce a strong, but pale beer with a distinctive aroma and a big flavor palette. Not really an ale-lager hybrid, but not a simple top fermented ale either. In other words, something new under the sun in the world of beer.
The first difference with the older, darker Duvel was the shift to a paler variety of the 2-row summer barley that they obtain from la Beauce Gatinais, an agrarian region of northern France. Then they reduced the amount of kilning of the malt to achieve a pale gold, rather than the older brown
color used for most ales.
