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.
