Huit-Huit or Wit-Wit, depending on how you pronounce it, is a collaborative double-wit beer brewed along with Mark Magiera from Bobcat Café in Vermont, where 8 has been an obsession, from recipe to brewing. First brewed in beautiful Vermont last summer, we’ve tried to replicate it here at our Montreal brewpub. Most ingredients remain the same, even the cute little wheat berries from Gleason!

Dégustée en fût sur place. De couleur jaune et semi-voilée. Nez de levures fruitées (agrumes, moyen de bananes) et moyennement épicées (clou de girofle, léger de coriandre), de blé, moyen de gomme balloune et léger de sucre bonbon. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux petites notes sirupeuses. Goût de levures fruitées (agrumes, léger-moyen de bananes) et épicées (clou de girofle, notes de coriandre, traces de gingembre terreux) et accompagné d’un léger goût de gomme balloune lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de céréales sucrées, de blé, léger de pain et de sucre bonbon puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes d’alcool ainsi qu’un léger regain de levures. Post-goût moyen-long, composé d’un goût de levures fruitées (pelures de bananes, léger zeste d’agrumes), moyen de blé, léger d’alcool avec des notes herbeuses. (26 novembre 2012)

Quevillon (2925) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 3, 2012
Drank on tap (12 oz) at the brewpub on December 2, 2012. Honey golden hazy, medium head. Wheat aroma of spicy coriander and ginger, some citrus notes. Sweet coriandr and ginger taste, some sensation of alcohol, bitter dry spice. The name is not very original, but it’s a good collaboration!

callmemickey (4285) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2012
On tap at Benelux in Montreal. Golden-orange body, large white head, decent lacing. Nose is full of wheat, orange rind, lemon zest, mixed cereals, and hints of banana. Flavor is nearly identical with a blend of citric notes, grains, and banana. Medium bodied, assertive carbonation, light bitterness, semi-dry finish.
