From Dageraad Brewing out of Burnaby BC comes their “De Witte” a sour fermented Belgian Witbier. The beer pours a cloudy golden yellow with a white head. The aroma consists of citrus and orange peel up front with bready wheat malts, coriander and other spices and a mild sour funkiness. The flavour is of bready wheat, orange peel, citrus, coriander, spices and a mild sourness from lactobacillus. The alcohol content comes in at 5.2%. I do not remember having very many sour Wit’s but this is a really integrating beer. It takes a good summer style ale and gives it just that much more intriguing!
