Advent Beer 22: De Molen X-mas Hop
In addition to making me rethink my perspective on hoppy brews, De Molen has totally converted me in terms of appreciating Dutch beers. This strong beer pours out a lovely gold colour, with the most pronounced head of any advent beer to date. X-Mas Hop has a tart and lively hop flavour with hints of citrus (maybe from the bergamot fruit listed on the label?) which balances out the 'hot 'and sweet taste of a 6.2% abv beer. At this point, I would be happy to try anything this brewer has to offer, so I hope to encounter more of these old fashioned typeface labels in Sherbrooke.
