Drink: Wellington Digger’s Wit
Source: Wellington Brewery, Guelph, ON
Size: 330 mL bottle (1/4)
The first of four beers from Wellington’s Re-Booted Mix Pack, Volume 4. A witbier, for the uninitiated, is a barley and wheat top-fermenting (ale!) beer.
Fulsome yellow with a slight mandarin undertone on the pour, with thin but lively head.
A malt tang aroma, with light spice—think Germanic bocks. However, despite the lemon and lime zest added in brewing, this wit doesn’t have a particularly fruity composition.
The citrus comes through more on the palate as an undertone; neither it not the malt lingers.
A clean finish, light a glass of iced lemon water.
This sessionable wit is hand-crafted for repeat performances. Wellington—start selling this on its own, SVP.
Hoochsavvy Grade: A-
