Brouwerij Frontaal Apistogramma (8.7%)

A collaboration between Frontaal and De Kromme Haring, this is a NEIPA to end all NEIPAs.
It’s brewed with two separate yeast strains, a soft sexy malt bill that involves wheat and oats for added creaminess, and hops in the shape of Citra, Amarillo, Sorachi Ace and HBC682.
The result is a beer with an enormous foam shrimp and banana sweetie aroma that drifts up from its cloudy peachy body.
The malts bring brown sugar and oatcakes, honey and pancakes, thick and round, creamy and chewy, and all those hops gang up on you, slapping your face around with freshly picked sapling bines, juicy mango and peach, sharp and zingy lemon and lime zest and dry white grapes and gooseberry skins.
And all of this is underpinned by an earthy fleshy fruity yeast kiss and the warmth of the gin clear booze that makes the finish long and crisp and drunken.
Lovely stuff.
