HBC_summer_witbier_release_Jan16Following on from last years hugely successful release of our “Red Rye Hand” RED ALE, we are pleased to announce the second release from our “Brewshed Collection”.

Our SUMMER WITBIER will be available in 50l Kegs (D style spears) 1st February 2016.

ABV: 4.7%, IBU: 15

Hawthorn Summer Witbier is a Belgian style white beer with a “spice twist”. With plenty of citrus spice and a dry finish, this is a thirst quencher in a glass!

Made from a combination of wheat and rolled oats, the high percentage of wheat ensures a dense white head whilst the rolled oats impart a smooth mouthfeel. It is fermented with a wheat yeast strain and unfiltered which results in a cloudy pale straw appearance.

This beer has the United Nations of ingredients – our spice mix includes coriander seeds and cardamom pods from India, bitter orange peel from Belgium, lemon rind from the Mornington Peninsula and hops and malts from Germany. All these combine to create a complex fruit and spice flavour.

Low in bitterness from a light hopping of Hallertau hops and with a dry and slightly tart finish, Hawthorn Summer Witbier is highly refreshing and perfect beer for the summer months.

Hawthorn Summer Witbier is an all natural beer with no added sugar, chemicals or preservatives. A versatile beer to pair with food, try serving with seafood, white meats and anything spicy; or equally enjoyable on its own. Best poured in a narrow glass.

This is a limited release Single batch so get in quick to secure your keg.
