No, not named after the wife of the Dutch King Willem-Alexander, but after the high alcohol content!
A brand new brew from brewery Het Nest.
Ok, brand new is not entirely true, a few months ago we had already been introduced to the Maxima, although it was a whiskey barrel-aged version at the time. Those who drank it back then will probably also remember that the label was predominantly black instead of white like the standard Maxima version. The standard version is therefore the one with the predominantly white label.
This Maxima Calvados BA version is again a barrel-aged series in which the standard Maxima was used as the base beer.
This time they aged it on fresh Calvados barrels for 6 months, giving it a slightly different taste.
Just like the standard version, this Maxima Calvados BA has a striking sweet attack with a certain fruitiness.
Because of the higher alcohol content, a certain sweet factor lingers, which ensures that the alcohol content remains very well hidden.
The barrel agening comes through subtly.
