Dr. M nr. 7 – Sommer

Sommer by Dr. M., Belgian Ale, 6.4% ABV, 32 IBU.

Pours a lovely golden, clear body with a huge head, this one is obviously highly carbonated. Good lacing. Long lived head that ends up as a layer that is thin enough to be called a film. 

Dr. M nr. 7 - Sommer. Enjoyed 8 months after bottling.

The aroma is very strong. Even through a 10 cm layer of quite dense, creamy head I get lovely crisp notes of Belgian yeast, light fruits and a light floral touch.

The taste is light sweet with a moderate bitter finish. The flavours follow the aroma, in addition I get some alcohol, maybe a bit too much, but the alcohol is quite clean and it’s fitting for the style, this is almost like a Duvel light.

The beer is quite lively carbonated, the texture is dry and the body is medium. An incredibly crisp and refreshing mouthfeel!

Conclusion: I deeply regret that I didn’t have this in the garden this summer, this must be the perfect summer beer! Crisp, refreshing with a gentle bite from the alcohol and the hops.
