Hunter beer co. Witbier


imageOn tap at the brewery (Potter’s hotel) in the Hunter Valley. This Witbier is a part of their core range and pours a cloudy pale straw-yellow with a short white head that maintains well, omitting some nice webbed lacing down the glass. We couldn’t get much off the aroma, slightly restrained hints of banana, herbs with a touch of tart lemon, hay and wheat malts are coming through. Really smooth and silky in the mouth. Quite light on with medium carbonation. The flavour is more present with dominant flavours of banana, herbs, tangy orange and a touch of citrus. The Belgian yeast is firm as you would expect from a good Belgian Witbier. There is also a hint of herb and spice in the finish. At 4.8% ABV it’s actually quite a sessional beer and would go great on a warm day paired with either salty/savoury snacks or seafood. Not bad, plenty of better options on tap though.
