Allagash White
Portland, Maine

Allagash White is a rendition of the classic Belgian Wheat beer known as Wit. Hazy golden in color with a rather cloudy appearance, this ale tastes of oranges from the Curaçao orange peel and coriander spice. Allagash wanted to give this beer an “American twist”, so the hop aroma is bitter and snappy. Settles in at 5% ABV, and a great tasting match with seafood and salads (especially those with goat cheese).

Fritz Briem 1809 Berliner-Weisse
Gräfelfing, Germany

Fritz Briem is a professor at the Doemens Institute, an internationally operating education and consulting enterprise for the brewing, beverage and food industries. Briem worked hand-in-hand with Weihenstephan, the acclaimed Brewery and Brewing Institute, to re-create a recipe dated back to Napoleon’s invasion of Berlin in 1809. The 1809 Berliner-Weisse replicates a style originating in Berlin that was called the “Champagne of the North” by the invading force. The style is very low in alcohol, with a pronounced, fizzy head and lactic tartness. A lemon-like tang and aromas of bubble gum and apples fly over this tart, bubbly ale. 1809 is unfiltered, unpasteurized and fermented in traditional open fermenters and horizontal lager tanks. 50% of the mash is wheat malt. The wort is placed in the fermenters and pitched with yeast and lactic acid bacteria at 64° F.

Jolly Pumpkin Calabaza Blanca
Dexter, Michigan

Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales produces sour versions of many typical beer styles. Calabaza Blanca is a bottle conditioned, sour, wheat ale, spiced with orange peel and coriander. Brewed in the biere blanche tradition of Belgium, with a sour twist. Rather acidicly pungent, the hazy yellow, pale colored ale has a huge white head and sour flavors over a relatively smooth malt back. Evident is a funky taste of apples, bubble gum from the wheat and an ever-present sour linger.
