Baird Biere du Biwa


Brewed by Baird Brewing Co.
Numazu, Shizuoka, Japan
Style: Fruit Beer | Ratings: 4 | Summer Seasonal | Alcohol: 5.7%
Biere du Biwa is brewed with the same recipe and processing parameters as Asian Beauty with one major exception: We ferment it with a Belgian ale yeast rather than our house ale yeast. The resulting flavor difference from this single variable change is profound. If you ever wanted to isolate and discover the character that a Belgian yeast strain imparts to a beer, this is the chance. Biere du Biwa feels tarter and drier on the palate than Asian Beauty. The phenolic character imparted by the yeast is strong and almost defining. After imbibing a glass, the overall impression is one of supreme refreshment.
