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.
