These were the beers from the Adventurous Discovery Box for the month of October:
1. Caravan Sultan of Brewery't Verzet (Hydro IPA, 1.5% ABV, 35 IBU)
A grapefruit-fruited taste, with a fine bitterness and a slightly drier finish. Drinkable and refreshing.
A hydro IPA is another name for a moisturizing Session IPA. Session IPAs are the IPAs that, like the regular IPAs, are packed with hops, but are light and refreshing thanks to a lower alcohol content.
2. The Grail Ginger (Blond, 8% ABV)
The Graal Ginger is a blond beer with bottle naginsting and has been around since 2001. The beer is slightly seasoned, slightly sweet and slightly spicy. As the name implies, it contains ginger (carrot), but it is only subtly present and certainly not predominant.
It won first prize at the 2002 Zwevegem International Beer Festival in the character beer category.
3. Miss T Lucie (Strong Blond, 8% ABV, 32 IBU)
A brut 'strong blond' beer-brewed to a dry powerful finish. The flavor pallet ramps from playfully fruity (grapefruit, green tea) to powerfully dry and immediately makes you crave the next sip. The aromas contain fruity keys of the tea that blend perfectly with the yeast flavors
4. Ne fliereflute (Tripel, 8.5% ABV)
A blond triple beer with only pilsner malt. The floral touch comes from the bitterhops and two European aroma-hop varieties. You enjoy a generous, malty aftertaste and with some hoppy bitterness
5. Maitre Tripel of De Meester Brewery (Tripel, 8.5% ABV)
The sweetly fruity aromas of this beautiful Belgian triple are carried by a pleasant fullness.
In the flavor, you'll discover a successful sweet-bitter balance and a nice fruitwith notes of peach and apricot.
6. Beer beer of De Mortselarij (Tripel, 9.6% ABV, 33 IBU)
Nice and sturdy peppered Tripel. Strong, powerful and at the same time bearably elegant! Brewed with a classic Belgian saison yeast. Spicy flavored with trans-pacific hops. To drink with a sense of size! Aromas of fruity and hoppy with black pepper and cloves. The flavor is firm, spicy and aromatic with subtle alcohol notes and a sweet malt touch. The beer has a dry finish with a mild bitter aftertaste and a substantial spicy-fruity yeast character.
