COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Menno from the Molen Brewery asked us to brew our approach of his beer "Vuur & Vlam", this for the occasion of his 2nd Borefts Beer Festival, which will be held next September 24 & 25th, in Bodegraven, Netherlands.

Note: Newest batch is dry-hopped with Cascade whereas earlier batches were dry-hopped with Amarillo.

Without a doubt very different from the Molen Brewery’s ’Vuur & Vlam’ but also different from the Struise signature beers. Nevertheless a very nice aromatic IPA. Not too heavy on the hops but rather refreshing.

Donkere oranje bruine kleur met een volle kraag. Ruikt honing, hop, bloemig. Smaakt bitterzoet, fruitig, hop, honing. Bittere afdronk.

ABS (701) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2015
Cascade version. Dark copper/brown/red colour. Finger thick, small-bubbled, white head. Very long lasting head. Quite sour nose. Caramel and malt. Some alcohol. Slight sweet beginning. Low to medium bitter aftertaste. Also some sourness. Wine, grass, some malt flavour. Medium body and carbonation. Slighly oily. Is this an IPA? I suspect a bad bottle....

Bruinoranje kleur, dichte kraag. Ruikt moutig en een beetje zurig, smaakt naar caramel, bitterfruitig, medium body. Niet zo mijn smaak.

WilleLW (211) - Lund, SWEDEN - JAN 12, 2015
Dark brown colour with a creamy head. Aroma of orange, spices , some apricot and malt together with toffee and some alcohol. Taste of orange, spices, elderflower and lemon. Relatively sweet pre-taste and a slightly bitter after-taste.

RichardGretton (4418) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle. Browny coloured beer with a strong slightly off white head. The aroma is dulled fruity with spice, and the flavour is bitter, spiced and hopped with a large malty element. Overall a nice Belgian style beer rather than an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LaViolette (115) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 5, 2015
Nice hazy golden brown colour, nose and palate are quite weak especially considering the mix of hops they are supposed to use... Smells a bit like honey, round fruity nose. It is nice but nothing striking.

This farm ipa turned. Quite a bit of standard citrus, more meadows, herbs and hops in the finish. Curiously
