Each year The Musketeers Brewery releases a special one-time edition of the Troubadour Magma beer. The brewers achieve these creations by changing up one part of the brewing recipe.
In previous editions, the recipe has varied with the types of hops used and some unique combinations of yeast. For the 2017 Special Edition the brewers have only played around with the amount of the ingredients. By changing the quantity of malts and hops, they have given the Troubadour Magma a special twist: lighter and more bitter, a true IPA of 7%.
The typical and well-known Troubadour Magma aroma of citrus, exotic fruits, mango and hops is still very present. The flavour is mildly fruity and spicy with a hint of caramel. The bitter character shines through quickly. The dry and bitter-hops finish lingers for a while.
The Magma Hop Twist is the perfect end to a busy, sultry summer packed with activities. At the end of summer, I like to relax on a calm terrace with a refreshing Magma Hop Twist, while enjoying the last sun rays.
Brewing a unique beer does not boil down merely to using different ingredients, but also the proportions thereof. We wanted to surprise every beer lover with this special edition: try and see what happens when we change the proportion of hop and malt of the regular Troubadour Magma!
