Smisje Wostyntje Mustard Ale
Smisje Wostyntje Mustard Ale....$4.99 / 11.2oz
Kent Goldigs hops is added at the beginning of the boil while Challenger hops, dark candy sugar and the crushed mustard seeds are added after about 50min. into the boil. The addition of light candy sugar and fresh top-fermenting yeast to the bottle starts the secondary fermentation in the bottle. After three more weeks Wostyntje is ready to become part of your dinner.
Wostyntje has a unique bitterish finish, which stems from the use of "Torhout's" mustard seeds.
Appearance: A hazy deep orange with short lived head.
Aroma: Spicy nose with notes of fruits such as apples and pears and slight hint of mustard.
Flavor: Sweet fruitiness up front which is later balanced by the slight bitterness from the mustard seeds.
Finish: Unique bitterish finish, resulting from the use of ‚ÄúTorhout‚Äôs‚Äù mustard seeds.
