Why release one Belgian style beer into the world when you can release two at the same time? Regular readers of The Crafty Pint may recall a series of travel pieces Matt Houghton from Boatrocker wrote for the site on a trip to Belgium a couple of years ago. While there, he visited a number of breweries, large and small, sampling beers but also picking brains about brewing Belgian styles. Despite having a core range based around hoppy New World styles, he's always maintained that this is where his heart lies. So, at the same time as Sterk & Donker, out comes Misfit. It's described as a hoppy Belgian golden ale and does exactly what it says on the tin. It pours an incandescent bright golden yellow, with a tall, fluffy white head, and is dominated by bubblegum, Wrigley's Juicy Fruit and hints of banana up front. Those characteristics, a hint of spice and some light malt sweetness follow before the hops come to the party, counteracting the fruity sweetness for a dry, bitter finish.
