Van den Bossche Buffalo Bitter

Van den Bossche Buffalo Bitter

Name: Buffalo Bitter

Style: Belgian IPA

Brewery:  Brouwerij Van den Bossche website

Country: Belgium

Region: Sint-Lievens-Esse, Belgium

ABV: 8.0% abv

How served: 750 ml caged and corked bottle poured into a Bon Secours Bière Vivante tulip.    

My Overall Opinion: Very Good. 4 Stars a

I paired this beer with:  My famous spiced grilled salmon.

Tasted on: Monday July 08, 2013


This beer poured a hazy golden color with a huge 3+ finger white fluffy head which left a sticky lacing on my glass.           

The nose had notes of grassy and floral hops along with light lemon, cloves and some spiciness.

The taste followed the nose with a touch of sweet candi sugar, mild cloves and pepper upfront then by mid palate I got some light lemon zest mixed in with grassy/herbal notes that ended mildly bitter and bone dry.

This beer has a medium body with a lively carbonation level. 

Overall this was a very drinkable and very well hidden 8% abv.  This brew tasted much better that when I had it in the past and would look to buy this again.
