Belgian yeast, open-top fermenters and a shed-load of American hops.
I have a few beers in my fridge that are doing a similar US/Belgian thing and I can only hope they’re all as good as this one.
What Belgian Conspiracy lacks in aroma (and it does lack in aroma) it makes up for when you take a mouthful.
You get a lovely spicy, earthy yeast bite more readily associated with Saison or Farmhouse beer, and it cuts across the squidgy toffee, white pepper and bran flakes of the malting.
The hops – Nugget, Summit and Amarillo – are superbly bitter, razor sharp with lemon rind and lime pith and juicy with peaches and pears, and this makes for a prickly, spicy finish that leaves your tongue dry and tingling for the next gulp.
