by Brouwerij het Uiltje

We’ve now become used to brewers putting a variety of fruits into our IPA’s, but pink hibiscus flowers are a little less common.  That’s Uiltje though, always striving to come up with something new and interesting.

But does the novelty factor make this a good beer?

We know Uiltje are masters at making hoppy beers, they are recognised as the best IPA brewery in The Netherlands.  

It pours a hazy, orange golden colour (no real sign of pink to be honest!), with a foamy white top.  An aroma of light grain and a little tropical fruit invite you to taste the beer.

There is a little early malt sweetness, though it doesn’t really last that long.  The hop combination for this beer is Magnum, Loral and Talus, and they offer some tropical fruit and a good level of bitterness.  And then somewhere in behind is the hibiscus, contributing a little something floral or even herbal.

The beer finishes reasonably dry with a lingering bitterness.  This isn’t my favourite Uiltje hoppy beer by any means, but it is an easy drinking IPA with a good dose of flavour and that something a little different.
