Made by New Limburg Brewery
New Limburg Belgian Style Ales. Big. Refreshing. Flavourful.
When the Great Ontario-Hopped Craft Beer Competition approached us to create a Belgian IPA for their 2017 contest, we knew, as a brewery focused on Belgian styles, that we couldn’t allow ourselves to disappoint. After winning first prize, our IPA has become a permanent member of our lineup
In designing this IPA, we sought to craft a well-balanced, “big” beer that would deliver ample bitterness, but without overwhelming the palate. Using a modified version of the grain bill for our Tripel, we aimed for a high alcohol content and a slight malty sweetness that would act as a counterpoint to some heavy-handed hopping. The beer’s bitterness comes out at the lower end of the IPA bitterness scale and was achieved using generous doses of locally-sourced hops. Dry hopping showcases the wonderful floral, herbal, and citrus flavours of the hops, and complements the signature spicy and fruity notes produced by our Belgian yeast.
