Today's offering is a German Weissbier, or wheat beer. Generally speaking, I like wheat beers, from Big Rock's Grasshopper to Granville Island's Hefeweizen, and even the occasional Hoegaarden, if I want to tart things up with a little coriander and such.
Golser's Weissbier has no such additives or additional flavours; look at how simple the ingredient listing is. It is a cloudy, smooth, somewhat tart wheat ale, which did a wonderful job of washing down this evening's shepherd's pie. To be quite honest, the 'premium wheat' and 'fine yeast' is probably wasted on me, but it's still a better use for wheat than baking it into a loaf of something or other.
More importantly though, I can now reveal the first five selections from the DIY Advent Beer Calendar Shari put together for Dave.
