Lefebvre Hopus
Day: 129 (since July 1, 2014)
Beer: Lefebvre Hopus
Brewery: Brasserie Lefebvre
Style: Belgian IPA
ABV: 8.3 %
Rating: 4.0 stars
Tasting Notes: Golden in color with a thick white effervescent head. A slightly sour aroma. Flavor is of honey and sweet with some hop bitterness. Moderate carbonation with a good mouth-feel and sweet after-taste.
Description: Blonde with copper reflections, topped with a generous head, Hopus derives from a secret batch brewed for the marriage of Paul Lefebvre. It has a unique and original nose, a blend of vegetal, citrus and fruit notes. The attack is bold, with an intense bitterness accompanied by a plethora of hopped notes. On the palate, the fruity top-fermented aromas and the malted flavours perfectly balance the initial taste without masking it. The bitter aftertaste is persistent but not disturbing, powerful but not overwhelming, elegant but not opulent…in short, the perfect preparation for the next mouthful. Drink very cold as an aperitif with crisps and pickles, as an accompaniment to a spicy dish or as an after-dinner digestive.
