I’ve declared that my Summer of Beer 2019 will include a return to some styles that have sort of fallen off my beer list, namely Hefeweizens and Witbier. Witbiers are Belgian style ales that are usually unfiltered which gives them a pale and cloudy hue on the pour. They are usually spiced with a fruit such as coriander or orange peel and are both crisp and wheaty on the tongue.
I find them to be refreshing with an orange slice, but some people don’t care for the extra fruit.
Tait Russell of Charleville Brewing has a new Witbier coming out soon, and Amelie, is probably not going to be like any Witbier you may have tried before.
1. How does the beer pour and appear at first glance? Clear straw like yellow
2. Can you describe this beer’s bouquet on the nose? Brett aroma, Chardonel wine, pineapple, straw
3. What flavors can we expect when we first try this beer? Brett, Chardonel wine, acidity, pineapple
Look for Amelie to be released on Wednesday, July 3rd.
