Saint Landelin La Divine

$8.95 (I think) from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA. 750 mL, swing top, slender bottle.
Striking golden clarity on the pour into the Duvel tulip is accompanied by a large, fluffy head and some serious lace. It looks GREAT, but a little too “clean” for a BdG! It looks a LOT more like a Belgian Pale, or perhaps (because of the amazingly golden color) a Euro Strong Lager. Anyway, it looks GREAT but it also “looks” out of style (if that is possible). It looks almost identical to maltermaster420’s avatar!

Grainy sweetness meets the nose along with a “strongish” alcohol presence, but it seems in check and balanced.
Very smooth, Belgian Strong Pale sweet, alcohol presence, but it is a bit more alcohol based, and obviously a lot less Belgian in terms of yeast and candy content. Finishes with a light “bitter” element, but even this is sugar based.
EXACTLY the kind of beer I like to crack open on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday when I have time to savor it. A super beer with excellent drinkability. Tasty!
