COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Each year The Musketeers Brewery releases a special one-time edition of the Troubadour Magma beer. The brewers achieve these creations by changing up one part of the brewing recipe. In previous editions, the recipe has varied with the types of hops used and some unique combinations of yeast. For the 2017 Special Edition the brewers have only played around with the amount of the ingredients. By changing the quantity of malts and hops, they have given the Troubadour Magma a special twist: lighter and more bitter, a true IPA of 7%. The typical and well-known Troubadour Magma aroma of citrus, exotic fruits, mango and hops is still very present. The flavour is mildly fruity and spicy with a hint of caramel. The bitter character shines through quickly. The dry and bitter-hops finish lingers for a while.

Van 't vat De Oagse Markt. Uitzicht: troebel donker oranje met witte schuimkraag die lang blijft. Neus: citrus, mandarijn, hoppen. Smaak: heerlijk evenwichtig aramahop (pompelmoes, mandarijn), fluweel, kandijsuiker. Medium carbonatie. Nasmaak: aromahoppen gaan over naar een heerlijk stevige bitterhop en kandijsuiker. Besluit: grootse en meesterlijke IePA. Men is erin geslaagd een bijzonder evenwicht te vinden tussen aroma- en bitterhoppen, mout en gist. Het is blijkbaar een geheim welke ingredienten er gebruikt worden want ik kan er niets over terugvinden. Aan te bevelen van het vat: 100x beter dan het flesje. Vele Nederlandse ambachtelijke (IePA)brouwerijtjes kunnen hier nog iets van leren.

At Brugs Bierfestival, 4 February 2018. Cheers to Anke & Pieter!

Clear orange with a small, frothy, off-white head. Strong aroma of orange, grapefruit, fruity hops, lemon, yeast, even some caramel & honey. Tastes light fruity (tropical) sweet and medium to heavy hoppy bitter; dry, grassy finish. Medium body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation. Okay, Troubadour Magma with a twist, yet not better than the standard version.

On tap at the Evening Star, Brighton, in company of Lynn and Barry, Friday 19th January 2018 Pours hazy light amber with a mid sized white head, looks good. A touch of Neopolitan Ice Cream on the nose. Lovely soft mouthfeel, good hop buzz, nice spicey edge. Good dry finish and despite initial sweetness it's bitter throughout. Nice, really nice.
