White Rabbit Brewery
White Rabbit Belgian Style Pale Ale
Brewery: White Rabbit Brewery (Australia)
Style: Belgian Ale
Format: 330ml Bottle
While regular visitors to the brewery in Healesville and the Little Creatures Dining Hall in Fitzroy will be aware that there is a steady stream of often experimental tiny batch beers coming out of White Rabbit, it has been a while – three years in fact – since they added a beer to their core range of Dark and White. Among those tiny batches has been a number of beers that have loosely played around with the Belgian pale ale style and thus it is that the third White Rabbit year-round beer is this “Belgian style” Pale Ale. Described as a meeting of old school and new, it's a beer that pours a brilliant copper in the glass with subtle herbal aromas that are joined by a touch of fruitiness once it warms. There's some caramel sweetness to taste, with the Belgian influence adding much in the way of spiciness and helping create a distinctly dry finish.
