Slow Drift Witbier – Fernie Brewing

From Fernie BC’s Fernie Brewing comes the “Slow Drift Witbier”.  The beer pours a cloudy gold colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of citrusy lemon, yeast, wheat and spices.  The flavour is of citrus, ornage, spices, coriander, bready and wheat.  The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 10.  This is definitely a well made witbier and will be very popular in the warm summer months.

Commercial Description:  A Belgian White Ale with light & spicy citrus flavours. This unfiltered beer is brewed with a touch of coriander & orange peel and is slightly cloudy. We think it’s downright delicious! Best when garnished with a slice of orange, to bring out the natural spices & subtle fruit flavour.  Kettle addition during boil – Seville orange & coriander. Use of Belgian yeast provides a slight phenolic, clove and bubblegum flavour. 50% Wheat Malt.
