A Belgian-style Witbier with a Kiwi twist from a Christchurch institution. Here they use lemon zest rather than the traditional orange zest for the flavour. This is such a sensory-pleasing style of beer. Wonderful aromas, great mouthfeel, refreshing finish – and this is a world-class example. If Witbier rebranded as the “original hazy” it would be all the rage. Citrus and coriander backed up by some white pepper make an intriguing nose. Light and spritzy on the palate with more floral and citrus coming through. Complex in its creation, easy to drink.
If you were in Belgium you'd be pairing this classic spiced, zesty beer with moule frites (steamed mussels in white wine with chips). But we're in New Zealand so what better than old fashioned fish and chips with a splash of vinegar.
