by Mokke Bier
This is the third beer in the Mokke trilogy. The brewers refer to this beer as an amber ale, with the ‘Ros’ hinting at it bring red in colour.
It is quite an interesting beer, and one that I found a little hard to categorise (which I need to do for the different fields on our website!)
In the end, I reckon I’m going to call it a red tripel style.
It does indeed pour a reddish amber colour, with an aroma consisting of citrus and light stonefruit, some sweetness from the malt and some typical Belgian yeast character.
The flavour is initially sweet. Some caramel malt as well as the Belgian candi sugar rocks that are used in the brew. There is also a little fruity sweetness like apricots a some orange citrus. Hopped with Saaz and Magnum, there is a solid bitterness to the beer.
