A Note on This Beer
Not so long ago, almost no one in the U.S. knew what a Witbier was. Then, in the mid-90s, Blue Moon came along and suddenly everyone was a fan of the classic Belgian-style.
But there’s a whole lot more to Wit than mass-produced Blue Moon!
Today, I’d like to encourage all you adventurous beer lovers out there to step-up and try a brew you won’t find in a sports bar with an orange slice garnish: Blanc from The Good Beer Company.
The tiny, employee-owned California brewery crafted this beer with real coriander and orange zest like a classic Wit, but that’s where the similarities end.
Blanc uses mixed culture fermentation, creating intricate depths of tart lemongrass and stone fruit flavors that mingle with the added spices, almost like a Saison. And all that funky fermentation takes place in neutral oak barrels, imparting hints of woody complexity and subtle nuances of vanilla.
In other words, this rustic brew is not your typical Wit.
It’s a brand new take on the beloved classic! The sort of adventure-in-a-bottle that earns The Good Beer Company praise from Craft Beer and Brewing and Hop Culture for their style-bending brews.
And if you’re a Tavour member, you’re probably the type of daring beer drinker who’s always on the lookout for exciting new flavors. But you likely have a friend who doesn’t know Wit beyond the sports bar.
Crack open Blanc and find out together how wild Witbier can be!
This beer is too new for ratings.
