Almanac Winter 2012 Winter Wit


Almanac Beer Company
Brewed at Hermitage Brewing Co.
San Francisco, California USA
Style: Belgian White (Witbier) | Ratings: 22 | Winter Seasonal | Alcohol: 7%
Winter 2012 Ale Brewed with Oranges and Ginger. Central Valley Oranges. Our blend of sweet and blood oranges were grown all-naturally at the family owned Hamada Farm in the central Valley. 7% 23 IBU Winter 2012 We brewed a bright, aromatic and warming "white" ale to sip through the short days and cold nights of our Northen California Winter. We Started with a healthy infusion of wheat, layered in a blend of juicy winter oranges from Hamada Farms, and added a touch of fresh ginger root to impart a hint of spicy, tangy heat. Finally a classic Belgian Wit yeast imparts a fruity, phenolic bite and rich, yeasty aroma. Pair with Cuban-Style roast pork or chevre goat cheese.
