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.

Thanks to Gunther for this bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a nice white creamy head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Flavors of strong citrus, hops and grains. Very refreshing, nice balance of flavors with a nice long fresh hop bitterness. long lasting bitterness in mouth. very much the white beer with the finishing of a good IPA.
