Atrium are the newest Belgian brewery to join our wholesale portfolio, though we only got to include one beer from them in the last few beer packs. That’s largely due to the fact wholesale orders cleaned us out of their beers, so I’ve made sure to get extra this time.
This is one of their newest beers, and their first foray into canning.
Twister is described as an Hazy IPA, and includes Mosaic, Citra, Amarillo and Sabro hops.
Pouring reveals a quite hazy, thick looking cloudy orange body. It looks like a NEIPA, though the aroma is more subdued than you might imagine given the lineup of hops. But there are the typical fruity notes.
Maybe a bit less of the tropical fruit in the initial taste, and nowhere near as sweet as the appearance and aroma might suggest. There is a light grainy malt body and a good level of bitterness. As it warms, I get more of the fruitiness from those hops but bitterness remains in the aftertaste.
A tasty beer, and something a little different than I expected.
