COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Together with chefs Onno Kokmeijer and Arjan Speelman of the Michelin-starred restaurant Ciel Bleu we created this highly tasty I.P.A. The dry-hop with Waimea and Citra hops gives the beer a floral, bitter character and the addition of kaffir lime provides a tropical touch. Completed by a deep golden color, the Ciel Bleu I.P.A. is an irresistable beer. Ciel Bleu I.P.A. is on the menu of restaurant Ciel Bleu and is limited available in our pub.

sebletitje (7411) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2013
Bouteille 33cl, BB 12/2013. Cuivrée-orangée, fine opacité, col épais blanc cassé. Arôme présente un beau bouquet fleuri, houblonné sur un tropical oscillant entre pamplemousse et citronné. Le malt reste en ajout rétro-nasal. Palais est malté moyen pâle avec, et cela m’a surpris, une pointe subtile de fumé. Amertume reste agréable pour une IPA avec un profil fruité agrumes très agréable. Retrouve ici des notes caractéristiques d’agrumes et un fini sec de houblonnage à cru. Légère note de pion en retrait.

Bottle at home in garden, evening, 29th June 2013. Pours murky deep orange, brown. Aroma is yeast is sour notes, yeast, and fruity. Taste is aromatic, the kaffir lime leaves really come through, together with hops and sourness, not sure if sourness is the kaffir lime or not. Unique and very enjoyable IPA.
