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 (7801) - Enghien, - 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.

jerohen (2071) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 31, 2015
Bottled from Biernavigatie. Hazy orange/amber colored, medium head. Hoppy nose, lots of tropical fruit, some yeast., somewhat soapy. Hoppy, fruity, but especially a very very bitter flavor. Dry and bitter finish. Probably good in combination with food, but stand-alone actually quite out of balance.

Maakun (1538) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2015
Bottle at home. Clear amber with small bubbly off white head. Spruce, grapefruit, beeswax, resin, lemon, marmalade, quite some caramel and even a hint of fudge. Underneath it all is a light spicy yeast. Medium sweet with long lasting medium bitterness. Medium bodied with oily feel. Very oily and almost waxy beer but nicely balanced by the grapefruit notes and sweetness.
