Advent Beer 13: Donder & Bliksem

As the picture amply illustrates, Brouwerij de Molen from Holland don't bring a whole lot to the label party, but they more than make up for it with what's inside the bottle.


Donder & Bliksem (Thunder & Lightning) is listed on a couple of sites as a Bohemian Pilsner (consistent with the backstory of their other beer in the calendar, Nood & Deugd), but I am at a bit of a loss as to how to characterize it, other than being a simple but very well executed beer.

A tangy bitterness that is complemented by the slight sweetness of the higher alcohol content (6.2% abv), it is a smooth, strong brew. Between this and Nood & Deugd, I am pretty much committed to sampling anything else from de Molen that happens to cross my path.
