Dag & Dauw is De Molen’s seasonal IPA with bergamot.
It pours a hazy brown in the glass and smells like a citrusy IPA with lime and a touch of perfume.
To taste there’s pine, grapefruit and peach from the hops, with a creamy malt body and more of that perfume from the bergamot.
It would be easy to overdo the perfume in a beer like this, but De Molen have got the balance just right.
So if you thought bergamot was something you only found in hotel toiletries, its time to think again.
