We are loving that De Molen is putting some of their beers into cans, and even more so that this one is a lighter option. We don’t have many cans in the portfolio, (and glass bottles aren’t allowed onto the playing fields), but a can of Rasputin isn’t always what you are looking for after a game of football!
So hooray for this little Hoppy Wheat Ale which the De Molen crew brewed to farewell their European summer.
The aroma is a pleasant mix of tropical fruits and sweet grainy malt. As you’d expect, the beer is light and crisp. A pretty high level of carbonation aids the prickly sensation on the tongue.
Hints of grapefruit and other citrus, and a nice grassy and slightly piney hop character lead into what is a pretty good level of bitterness, which makes this beer very moreish and thirst quenching.
Perfect time for us to enjoy De Molen’s new summertime beer.
