Bitter Sweet Symphony

Now for a beer with an American influence, Bitter Sweet Symphony is a collaboration between Belgian brewers Gaverhopke and from the States, Tired Hands Brewing Company - the recipe American, the brewing Belgian.

Pours a bright hazy amber, topped by a huge creamy, fluffy white head that slowly fades to a thin cap - from the start this is one great looking beer.

Lovely aroma of sweet caramel malts, bready Belgian yeast, light floral hops and a sweet citrus (grapefruit) finish.

Tasting only confirms just how much this beer lives up to its name - bitterness comes in the shape of dry grassy - straw like hops, biting citrus notes combined with a fruity (peach) edge.
Sweet malts with touches of caramel provide the perfect symphony.
