Jeune Gueule Weïti

jeunegueule_weityBrewer: Jeune Gueule, Matoury, French Guyana
Style: Fruit-infused White Ale
ABV: 5%
IBU: Unlisted

Description:  As part of this French Guyanese brewery’s regular lineup of beers, this white ale is brewed using malted barley and wheat, and then infused with Guyanese oranges and orange peel to give it a fruity aroma and smell. The final product is also unfiltered and unpasteurized, resulting in a cloudy, golden-white ale.

Tasting Notes: Again, a bottle that came to me thanks to an unsold advent pack. And like its predecessors, it did not disappoint. The wheat and barley malt provide a smooth, easy-drinking base that is then augmented with a strong infusion of sweet, citrusy orange, creating a very refreshing brew.

Appearance: Golden yellow, slightly cloudy, good foam retention and carbonation
Nose: Wheat malt, orange zest, yeasts, floral bouquet
Taste: Smooth malt, burst of orange citrus, yeasts, mild bitterness
Aftertaste: Lingering malt, yeast and zesty orange flavor
Overall: 8/10
