Check out the big giant head on this Duvel from Belgium. Highly rated and highly regarded by the beer people of the world, this pale ale has a citrusy nose and a harsh attack. Sharp around he edges. The finish is dry, but in the end--being wine drinkers--we found the high carbonation a little too much.
The food is Gnocchi With Sausage and Spinach, from the Real Simple web site.
