Here’s another interesting creation from our mate Kees Bubberman, which surely harks back to his days as a chef. A beer which includes pineapple, coriander and szechuan peppers.
This style is loosely known as a milkshake IPA, and uses lactose to achieve a smooth(y!) creamy mouthfeel.
The pineapple is most dominant, both in the aroma and the taste. After a few sips, you get the hint of the peppers in the background. It might be just psychological in that you know it’s there, but I reckon there’s a little more zing in the hop bitterness. hough I really don’t get much in the way of coriander.
Despite the creamy feel on the tongue, the beer finishes really quite dry and prickly.
Ingredients more akin to an Asian curry perhaps but I think this beer really works.
