Smisje Wostyntje Mustard Ale

Smisje Wostyntje Mustard Ale has a bitter spiciness and slight sour tartness

The Belgian Smisje Brewery is known for brewing with unusual ingredients and was bold enough to push the envelope with its Wostyntje Mustard Ale.

The brew doesn't include actual finished mustard, but rather crushed mustard seeds from the Belgian village of Torhout, which are combined with Dark Candi sugar; the latter helps to balance the bitterness of the seeds. The aroma jumps out with a distinct mustardy scent, and this orange-amber hued, strong golden ale is well carbonated, pouring a frothy head. A bitter spiciness and slight sour tartness dominate the flavor with further bitterness coming in the finish — a likely result of the mustard seeds used in the brewing of this beer. Be sure to sip it after it has warmed a bit, as the mustard characteristics will be masked if it's served too cold.
