The Bruery Provisions Series: Imperial White Orchid
From The Bruery – Clearly a bit of a play on the fact that Orchard White is quite often called by the wrong name, this beer is a new version of a Belgian-style wit for us. We’ve uped the gravity, creating a wit that comes in at 9% abv and we’ve completely removed lavender from the equation, this time brewing with orange peel, coriander and nutmeg for a great earthy taste. We worked on this recipe after an afternoon of tasting some of our favorite wit beers in the world and we think we did a nice job paying homage to some of the best.
The Bruery – The Bruery Provisions Series: Imperial White Orchid – On tap at The Bruery Provisions, Orange, CA. 9% abv.
Appearance: Pours a pale gold with a sudsy soapy white head. Visible rising carbonation in the body.
Aroma: Spicy fruity yeast. Clove and fresh herbal hops.
Taste: Clove, spice, pale malt, candi sugar.
Mouthfeel: Too carbonated for my liking. This was on tap, so maybe the bottles are less carbonated.
Overall: The alcohol is well hidden, but this just seemed like another strong golden from The Bruery.
