The young brothers at De Moersleutel are focused on two broad styles of beer. The first is the big, dark and complex Russian Imperial Stouts, with an assortment of ingredients as is their habit. The second is hoppy beers, with a concentration on the ever-popular NEIPA’s.
The name of this beer translates as ‘whether you like hop’, and for most of us I think the answer is ‘yes’. Particularly so if you are a fan of Citra and Mosaic hops.
It has an inviting aroma with lots of citrus, lime, nectarine, mandarin, passionfruit, peach and pine. This follows through in the taste, with a tropical fruit sweetness filling the mouth before a pleasant bitterness joins in for a dry and lingering finish.
The bitterness is probably too obvious to truly be in the style of the fruit juice NEIPA’s of the US, but I actually prefer the hazy IPA’s to have some hop bite to balance things out. So don’t focus on putting it in a box, rather just enjoy it for a deliciously flavoursome beer.
