Holgate Brewhouse 15th Anniversary White Ale
Brewery: Holgate Brewhouse
Style: Belgian Witbier
Format: 500ml Bottle
Celebrating the 15th anniversary of Holgate comes a ramped up take on their White Ale. It makes sense too, considering the White Ale was one of their first commercial brews ever brewed.
The beer involves taking the White Ale base recipe, then beefing it up with heaps of fresh oranges and grapefruits added to the usual coriander. The result, is a big, hazy yellow fruit cocktail of a beer, juicy in body, aroma and flavour, with the citrus fruits adding to the distinctly spicy and slightly banana-like esters from the yeast. There's some spritzy carbonation to lighten that creamy body with a touch of tartness, rather than bitterness, left to clean up at the end of the party.
