New Limburg Wit
My sixth and final installment from my visit to the New Limburg Brewing Co. was their wit. A Belgian-style white beer, this beer was brewed using coriander, orange peel, and camomile. The 500mL bottle features a fast-moving bride, though whether she's bolting to or from the alter is left unsaid.
The milky, yellow-gold concoction poured with a nice white head. It contained a low octane 4.8% alcohol, which made for mellow sipping. The nose had some yeasty qualities, as well as a warm blast of citrus. Fruit notes crowded the flavour as well, with notes of orange peel and banana doing the most work. The beer finished yeastily, but also quite refreshingly.
Like most witbiers, New Limburg's Wit was a classic summer beer--easy to drink, light, refreshing, and possessed of nice, cheery taste. This brew from Nixon, Ontario was a good wit, though one with little to distinguish itself from the pack. I definitely liked it though.
