Belgoo Magus

750 mL, corked and “clasped” (Corsendonk style) from Hop City, Atlanta, GA, USA.
Lovely honey colored, clouded pour and a very noce initial, light, frothy head. Retention and lace aren’t great, but still acceptable.
Nose and tastes reveal muted alcohol, muted white pepper and muted Belgian sweetness (candy). A light spice note is there too. Yeasty finsh completes the picture.
Very light, easy drinking.
In a nutshell, a poor man’s Duvel with similar appearance but a lot less depth. Perhaps a touch harsh on the beer as it is not trying to emulate Duvel as far as I can tell (with the lower ABV and the regular Pale rather than Strong Pale categorizaton), but one can’t help but make comparisons. If you fancy a lighter touch than Duvel then this would be a good option.
