  • Bottled on April 21, 2010, batch 4, bottle 359 of 472.

    Pours cloudy with several inches of meringue, white foam. Retention is average with nary any lacing.

    Aroma is Belgian yeast with spice scents. Pear or white grape are deep in the beer but not much else.

    This is old and musty with a bit of off spice. Nothing good really here.

    This is water. Pure water with yeast.

    A year or so ago I was really searching for White Birch beers and was excited to land a few. Now not so much. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • This straw colored beer greets with an aroma of noble hops, pears and Belgian esters. The flavor follows nicely with a moderately spicy hop and Belgian yeast effect buoyed by a soft malt body. The finish is crisp and dry. We enjoy this beer with spicy foods, grilled steaks, grilled chicken and mandarin salad. Where you take it is only limited by your imagination. For those interested in styles, the name of this beer comes from the color over trying to meet any particular style.
