Breakfast Beer Tasting: Ramsbottom Craft Brewery Wheat Beer
We’re staying local this morning with another beer from RCB/ But heading towards the lighter side of the spectrum with a wheat beer. This is a Belgium whit, so I’m thinking along Hoegaarden lines when approaching it. It’s 500ml and bottle-conditioned and at a hefty 6.3%, is considerably stronger than Hoegaarden.
It poured (as is atypical of this type) a cloudy amber with good carbonation and a large off-white head. The aroma was a gentle mix of wheat and coriander. The taste is smooth and not particularly strong, with orange peel, coriander and a little honey. The finish is a short burst of spiced citrus.
Served cooler than the average BCA, this could be a refreshing after work or pre-breakfast drink.
