De Brabandere Brewmaster Wild Triple Hop
Country: BE | Style: Belgian Tripel | Size: 330ml | %ABV: 8
From De Brabandere:
Chris Van Acker created the Brewmaster’s Selection Wild Tripel Hop. This beer consists of 15% pure foeder beer that has been ageing on French oak foeders for 24 months, blended brilliantly together with our delicious Petrus Tripel. On top of that, 2 American hops were added, Cascade and Amarillo.
This combination creates an 8% ABV golden ale, with a nice foamy head, a fresh citrus-scent, a beautiful bitterness and a pleasant sourish aftertaste. The acidity level of the foeder beer decreases the level of bitterness and at the same time increases the drinkability of this beer. Despite the fact that, in theory bitterness and acidity don’t blend well together, Chris proves everybody wrong in the most brilliant of ways through this masterpiece.
