Powell Street Craft Brewery – Ginger and Cardamom Belgian Witbier Review
The newest seasonal offering to come out of the Powell Street brewery is a twist on Belgian tradition. As a Witbier the addition of Ginger and Cardamon makes for a fragrant and unique tasting beer. Pouring with a thin finger of head this cloudy-yellow coloured beer is bursting with aroma. The Cardamom hits the nose first in a sweet and spicy smell. A faint Ginger note along side of orange and lemon make for a light but flavourful summer tasting. The flavour is big up front with cardamom, shortly following comes the citrus hit with ginger notes being much more apparent than in the smell. This wheat beer is light and flavourful with a fairly intense hit of Cardamom. Perhaps a bottle to share this is very refreshing on a hot summer, BC day.
