Well this is something different from De Molen!
It is an hazy IPA with extracts of vanilla, chocolate and orange. And you really aren’t left doubting what is in this beer – the aromas explode out of the bottle as you pour and it is exactly as it says on the bottle.
More of a surprise is the flavour – it absolutely tastes like a liquid Jaffa Cake!
I get the orange on my tongue as I breath in before taking a sip; there must be loads in there. The chocolate is layered nicely behind and the vanilla is in the background (at least for me).
Although I was amazed by the flavour, I wasn’t exactly sure I liked this beer for the first few tastes. It has a very low carbonation, and the body is a little heavy and sticky. But the aftertaste gets me back in for another sip.
I don’t know that I’ll reach for this beer often, but it certainly is an interesting creation and one that immediately takes my mind back to eating Jaffa Cakes as a kid at birthday parties. It’s a fun beer to try.
