Looking forward to Baron Rating Shepherd Neame Cinque


Another new arrival from the Shepherd Neame family, this is 'Cinque' - their five grain premium lager. The "brewers have blended barley, rye, wheat, maize and rice" (really?!? do we need maize and rice?) "with Strisselspalt hops to produce a clean, superior tasting, high-quality lager".

 Look out for baron ratings for this beer soon, and a big thank you to  Benedict from Shepherd Neame for sending it through for a baron rating!

Looking forward to baron rating Duvel Tripel Hop Citra

Duvel's Tripel Hop is a very special beer, one that I seek out each year and try (they have experimented with different hops over the past few years). Last summer they put out a six pack of unlabelled Duvel Tripel Hops, asking for people to record what they thought and to feedback the results. The overall winner by quite a way was the 2012 version, using Citra hops. So they have rebrewed that version and made it a regular line-up in their beer portfolio.

It "trounced the four American and one Japanese candidates"

  • Duvel Tripel Hop Citra -9.5% Belguim beer super charged with Citra, an American hop from the Yakima Valley in Washington, used for its aromatic, grapefruit and tropical fruit notes
