COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gold Medal in Brussels Beer Challenge 2013, in collaboration with Gunther Bensch from Browerij Montaigu (Belgium), is a beer with the touch of Barcelona. It has a cosmopolitan, innovative and creative spirit, as does the city.

BIIR’s recipe combines the tradition of Belgian Witbier and the innovation of American IPAs.

A large amount of barley and wheat malt from Central Europe provides body and alcohol content above what is usual in Wit. From Australian and North American hops it obtains fruity aromas and flavors, with the precise dose of bitterness that also turns BIIR into a refreshing beer. Three different types of organic orange peel and coriander brings out the aromatic flavors of Mediterranean.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Shmupi. Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of coriander, orange and some hops, somewhat stale. Sweetish and slightly souirish flavor of coriander, oranges and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Like a somewhat hoppy Witbier.
