Boatrocker Misfit

Boatrocker Brewery

Released September 24th, 2013

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.
