Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: smithj4 on 11-01-2013

Meaning “sixty” in Dutch, “zestig” refers to this beer’s 60 IBU, underscoring the prominent role noble hops play in this dry-hopped beer, in terms of both bitterness and aroma/flavor.

Beer pours a cloudy dark golden body with a huge white head. The smell reminds me of a skunked beer. The taste is sort of skunky, slight bitter hops and sweet malt. There is a lot of carbonation behind this beer too. (217 characters)

Appearance: Pours a very pale, somewhat cloudy gold into my goblet. A two-finger head composed of tiny white bubbles perches on top and then slowly collapses, leaving spotty lacing.

Smell: The yeast takes a more prominent role than in many beers, and it is interesting. Classic Belgian white pepper and cloves from the yeast are present, but the yeast itself is also prominent, if that makes any sense. A mix of herbal notes combine with a vinous element to round it out. Very enticing.

Taste: This is a good one. It’s very well balanced, and the hops generally provide a perfect counterpoint to the candy sugar notes. Noble hops add an almost pilsner-like feel. White pepper and other spices combine beautifully with the herbal flavors, which amplify as the beer warms. Really complex and well done.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation is relatively high and the beer is almost airy in the mouth, which seems to help camouflage the almost undetectable 10% ABV.

Drinkability: Very high, particularly given the very well-hidden alcohol. (1,028 characters)

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Can I get a forty of "Sixty" anywhere? Regardless, this stuff pours a partly-cloudy straw-brass topped by a couple fingers of lightly cream-white foam. The nose comprises bread, spicy Belgian yeast, light champagne grapes, a dash of black pepper, some light grass, and a touch of clove. The taste brings in more of the same, though it often comes off as yeast-laden white bread dipped in white wine. The body is a lithe medium, with a moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a nice enough Belgian offering, though the hops really aren't able to shine very brightly amidst the overpowering yeast and bread parts. Still, it's not bad. (677 characters)
