Rhubarb Wit – Big Rock Urban Brewery

From Big Rock Urban Brewery in Vancouver comes their seasonal the “Rhubarb Wit”.  The beer pours a cloudy golden orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of wheat, orange, citrus rind, yeast and maybe a hint of rhubarb.  The flavour is of orange, citrus, citrus rind, rhubarb, yeast, wheat, sweetness and a hint of tartness in the finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 5% with an IBU of 12.  If you enjoy a good Wit this beer will be for you.  I wish the Rhubarb shone through more only because I am a huge fan of rhubarb but this is a really tasty wit and a great sip on a hot day!

Commercial Description:  This classic witbier is aged with rhubarb, lending a hint of sour tartness to subtle layers of orange peel and spice, all thrown into relief by the balanced bitter of a low hopping rate. A light bouquet or coriander and citrus crowns the faint undercurrent of rhubarb, unfiltered and echoed through to a delicate finish.
