by Brasserie Du Chablis

Here’s something a little different from a small French brewery located in the heart of the Chablis wine region.

Brasserie Du Chablis was started by two cousins who grew up in the Burgundy area.  Surrounded by wine producers, they decided to offer something a little different.  A brewery producing fully organic beers, rich in the terrior of the region.  Each beer is rumoured to have spent time finishing in a Chablis wine barrel, but I can’t get an exact answer on timings for each beer.

Our ‘bio’ witbier looks like a standard wit, a slightly cloudy straw colour.  It has the aroma of citrus and coriander, which is true to form.

When the beer hits your tongue, the bubbles start dancing around your mouth, and it feels quite crisp and lively.  There isn’t a lot of sweetness to be fair, just a light malt body with a hint of citrus and spice.

As the beer finishes a sustained bitterness grips the sides of the tongue, becoming slightly more pronounced in the aftertaste.  It makes the beer very refreshing and encourages another sip quite quickly to explore those sensations all over again.
