Vanishing Monk Belgian Witbier – Old Yale Brewing

Limited Release

From Chilliwack’s Old Yale Brewing comes their “Vanishing Monk Belgian Witbier” a part of their Tall Tale Series of beers.  The beer pours a light straw yellow that is quite cloudy and has a billowing white head.  The aroma consists of yeast, wheat, citrus, orange and coriander.  The flavour is of Belgian yeast, wheat, citrus, orange, coriander and other lite spice, mild tartness and a very mild bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 20.  Like all witbiers the flavour is not massive but it is really refreshing and I could picture myself sitting on a patio in the summer with a pint or two of this beer.  Get it before it vanishes!

Commercial Description:  An unfiltered Belgian style Witbier with hints of orange and coriander, a slightly tart finish, and a fluffy white head. Use it to steam mussels (delicious!), or pair with a fresh fruit salad.

Food Pairings as per brewery:  Steamed mussels, Fruit Salad, Grilled chicken breast, Crab, Smoked Salmon
