Beer Tribute to the famous Antwerp Red Star LIne, this ’transatlantic’ Amber-Red ale is a ’beer-bridge’ between Belgium and the US, and is a fusion of typical Belgian Brewing tradition with US Craft Influences. The Bootjestbier Brewed using only malts (4 types) without any added sugar, generous yet balanced in Belgian and US aromatic hops, finished with Ginger and Coriander. A mild and balanced, highly drinkable yet complex ale. Rated World’s Best Pale Ale at World Beer Awards 2016, after winning numerous silver and bronze medals at other contests.
Clear amber with nice off white head that leaves some minuscule bubbles. Aromatic-hoppy, citrusy-tropical nose with mild spiciness and caramely malt. Flavor is very aromatic-hoppy with both herby and tropical hops, a slight gingery spiciness in the finish, and toffee-caramely maltiness. Well balance between fruity sweetness and the bitterness from the spices. The finish is light dry and bitter.
