Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - March: Hop Harvest

March is a magical month for many reasons but in the craft world, there’s only one. It starts with a citrusy tropical fruit sip and ends with a bitter explosion. That’s right, we’re talking hops because March is hop harvest month! Right now at the hop farms in George, tall bines of hop plants are being harvested, and we can almost smell the future fresh hop IPAs. To celebrate the season, we’ve put together a mixed case packed with enough green goodness to sate even the hoppiest of hopheads.

Join us online this month as the @TastingLeague community gets up to its usual tricks. What is the @TastingLeague you ask? It’s our social media community of craft beer drinkers. Every month they share beer reviews, pics and thoughts. There’s always plenty of crafty conversation, laughs and League of Beers vouchers up for grabs. It’s a channel for the community and run by the community. If you think you’ve got what it takes to be in charge for a month then give us a shout. Until next month, Hoppy March!

Riot Beer Valve IPA

4.0 stars from 1 review - Write your review

The Valve is named after the full valve guitar amp because of its fuller tone and sustaining hop notes. This India Pale Ale has the hop heaviness of an American style, but the balance of a British style IPA. Some notes of guava and litchi upfront, with a classic bitter hop finish.

  • Deep golden in colour
  • Thin off-white head
  • Fruit on the nose with guava on the palate, followed by a hoppy grapefruit bitterness

Liefmans Goudenband

No reviews yet - Write the first review

Made in open vats with beer of mixed fermentation, the Goudenband is left to mature for four to 12 months in the cellar. The mature beer is then fortified with younger beer, so the fermentation process starts up again. The result is a dry, lightly caramelised malt flavour, enriched with fruity notes and hints of nuts and dried raisins.

  • Red-brown in colour
  • Small off-white head
  • Aromas of caramel, apple, rhubarb, cherries and malt, with flavours of apple and cherries, combined with woody notes, and nuts and dried raisins in the finish
  • Stores well and improves over time
  • Pairs well with blue cheese
