Stanley Park Brewery – Belgian Style Wit Review
Stanley Park Brewery stepped outside of the walls of tradition with the launch of their Belgian Brun in the fall of 2012, taking things one step further and keeping in touch with the competitive BC craft beer industry they have now released a Belgian Style Wit, or Witbier. Brewed with the power of wind this golden-straw coloured, hazy beer is topped in the glass with a chubby fingers worth of head that settles quickly and cleanly. Through this head comes notes of coriander and orange peel along side smooth malted notes and the slightest of hop. The taste is extremely refreshing starting off with a crisp hit to the tongue. The flavour is smooth with the coriander and orange building with a mild sweetness. The finish is dry and very lightly hopped leaving a mild citrus at the back of the palate. This beer is light, easy drinking and has a great combination of summer flavours. Try it on the deck, at the beach or pair it with your next seafood BBQ – you will not be disappointed.
