by Brouwerij het Uiltje

Uiltje have taken a classic Belgian beer style and pimped it with some tropical American hops to create what they call their ‘mutant blond’.   

It’s always interesting when such a traditional style beer is hit with a modern twist.  I’ve had lots of fantastic Belgian blonds over the years, so I’m actually a little sceptical about this beer but on the face of it, the hop addition seems like an interesting thing to do so let’s go!

First off, the pour is an ever-so-slightly cloudy golden colour, with a foamy white cap that actually disappeared quite quickly for me.  Maybe I was being overzealous checking the aroma which is predominantly of Belgian yeast with maybe a little citrus hop character.

To taste the beer is very much a Belgian Blond.  Light grainy malt with some yellow fruit sweetness is balanced by a firm bitterness that carries a spicy, prickly, grassy note.  It really livens up your tastebuds with a firmly bitter and spicy aftertaste. 

I do like this beer, and I enjoy the extra hop bitterness from those American hops.  Yet the beer still remains firmly as a Belgian Blond.
