Brouwerij Sterkens Bokrijks Kruikenbier (7.2%)

BokrijksWhat a super Belgian Farmhouse beer this is and what a beautiful container it comes in.
The aroma is light and airy, a little straw and a little yeast, some pear and a hint of spice.
The malts are spun sugar , toffee apples, brioche and fresh orchard fruits.
There’s a terrific metallic steely coolness, knife sharp and brilliantly clean that I only ever find in the best Belgian beers.
The hops are hazel leaves and acorns, a twist of lemon zest and a bunch of crushed peppercorns.
There’s a hint of the Saison á la DuPont here, but it’s a much more bitter affair that creates a keen and snappy bitter finish that’s not unlike a super dry white wine.
And all this in a lovely ceramic container with a flip top lid.
I think I’m in love.
