Schelde Brouwerij Dulle Griet (6.5%)

Dulle Griet is a lovely fruity dark beer that’s both satisfyingly full and rich and refreshingly crisp.
It sits in your glass a deep mahogany and smells of biscuits and plums.
The malts are heavy with liquorice and prunes, deep and dark and juicy, and there’s a very good toffee coated digestive biscuit in the mix too.
Just as the hops kick in you get a brief hit of candied peel and star anise and a touch of cloves.
Then the hops go to work with elderflower and clementine citrus freshness, a whole load of mown grass and a bunch of fresh herbs that are tart and astringent and beautifully temper the sweet stickiness that lies at the heart of this beer.
