BEER HAIKU #73 De Molen Zwart & Wit Black IPA

For the second week in a row, notable Dutch brewer De Molen took pole position as Hashigo Zake Cult Beer Bar’s weekly new release. This time out, the offer was in the (is it still?) trendy Black IPA style, albeit one that weighs in at a beefy eight-plus per cent.

De Molen Zwart & Wit Black IPA (8.4% ABV)

Wood fired, richly smoked

Contemplating muggy days

Sheep in wolf’s clothing

Food match: smoked salmon on cream cheese and pumpernickel, pizza

It’s the kind of beer you drink when: you’re feeling trendy.
