Breakfast Beer Tasting: Ramsbottom Craft Brewery Thai Witbier


We’re keeping the international theme going today with an exotic little number from Ramsbottom Craft Brewery. Last outing we had wheat beer, this time we have a Thai Witbier. It’s 5.7% and comes in 500ml bottle-conditioned form.

It was very lively and poured cloudy amber with a large off-white head. The aroma was slightly musty with lemon and spice coming through later. The taste was spicy and quite tart. There’s ginger in there along with lemongrass and a tinge of orange in the background.

The finish was short: a little burst of lemon and ginger. Trying to compare the two wheat beers, I’d have to say I prefer the normal wheat over this one. The spice element comes through a little too much for my liking in this one, at the expense of the other flavours.
