Brewer: Le Trou du Diable
Nativity Beer, 5%
Bought it because it has a baby luchador and mama sugar skull on the label, and it has sweet promises of honey.
This is the exact color of honey. Warm golden yellow, and the tiny bubbles dancing upwards from the carbonation make it look just magical. It has a dense foam, with a slight yellow tint. It vanished pretty quickly after pouring.
It smells absolutely divine. Almost like mead, but like traditional beer as well. I have no idea how this is going to happen all at once in my mouth.
OMG. This is so bubbly. It`s so richly carbonated, it`s like champagne. It has a slight lemony tartness, and the honey is subtle enough that it balances it out, instead of being the predominant flavour. The after taste keeps a light sourness.
What the hell, I did not expect this. The label mentioned some extreme amount of honey being added, I seriously expected almost a mead hahahah! Don`t get me wrong though, I am a fan.
It`s very refreshing. Kind of like an alcoholic version of LaCroix sparkling water with boosted flavour. It`s smooth drinking too, at a comfortable 5% and a reasonable price.
I can see this being a great beer to go with a nice juicy burger.
