Uiljte Brewing Co. are the newest Dutch brewery to join our portfolio. They hail from Haarlem, a city in the north west of The Netherlands, about a half hour drive west of Amsterdam.
Uiltje translates as ‘owl’ and this forms the centerpiece of their company logo. And the bird theme runs through many of their beers, as we’ll see in future packs.
These new cans are fresh off the last container which arrived on Wednesday. The beer is a collaboration with the UK’s Magic Rock Brewery, and together they have concocted a Rice Brut IPA.
This beer is really quite true to the style. A hazy straw coloured beer with some nice tropical fruit and pine aroma. The crisp, light grain body combines with the fruity flavours of grapefruit, peach and white grapes. As intended the beer finishes quite dry, with a pleasant lingering bittnerness. Welcome to our party, Uiltje!
