3. Drank “Vuur & Vlamm”
Ever since I tasted it late last year, this beer has been on my mind, and we just got it back at the Euston Tap. One of the managers just took a trip to Holland to catch up with this Windmill-based brouwerij and has been blabbering about the amazing quality of their beer ever since (to my great enjoyment). They are famous for their Imperial Russian Stouts, but this brew – which translates to “Fire and Flames” – is a subtle and unbelievably drinkable IPA. It pours out of the keg with a gorgeous snowy-white head and a clear lemon body. It has a full-on flowery flavor to it that’s like a potpourri was blended with a lime and – quite surprisingly – came out to be a refreshing and crisp brew.
