Saxo

$5.99 for a 750 mL, corked and caged brown bottle. Excellent value.

Typically pale Belgian, with all the usual characteristics. Super, pale yellow pour in my Duvel tulip with a lovely frothy head and some minor lacing. Final pour incorporates the remainder of the yeast to add to the body and taste. The Duvel glass helps the head by focusing the carbonation, but still a lovely looking pour.

Quite spicy with lots of cloves present. The beer is overall really quite acidic and had a fairly dry finish too.

Mouthfeel is average with the alcohol well disguised. For me this drinks well below its 8.00% ABV.

If you can pick this up at the $5.99 price tag then you’ll have a very solid, decent ABV, authentic Belgian at an excellent price.
