Now this is really very enjoyable.
Brewed with Cascade and Mosaic, there’s a lovely hop presence which we’ll get to in a minute, but I need to tell you about the malting, because coupled with the yeasty bite it’s a thing of rich round beauty.
Put quite simply, I could drink this without any hops in it, the malts and yeast combining to create a body thick with apple cores and toffee, cherries, brown sugar and a damp earthy spice.
It’s the kind of malt body that reminds me of De Molen.
Yes, that good.
The hops cut across all this sticky sweet goodness lime zest and lemon sherbet, orange marmalade, taken you into a finish at once sweet and gloopy and tongue tinglingly dry.
