A Spicy Summer Brew in Fall – The Bruery Orchard White

The Bruery Orchard White – 5.7% ABV

When it comes to new flavors, I’m all about trying something new. Variety is the spice of life after all. I found a nice little ditty in Orchard White by The Bruery. I’ve had witbiers before, and I have enjoyed them all (for the most part), but this was my first foray into tasting anything with lavender in it. Lavender, you say? Indeed I did. This gave the beer a bit of a crisp, spicy element to the mouthfeel and definitely set it apart from anything else I’ve had in this style.

I got this bottle recently at Buy-Rite, only to find out some time after that this beer has been retired. Darn it, I wanted to grab another one or two (or ten) of these. No worries though, it was fun while it lasted. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I enjoyed making it. Cheers!

About Jason M

Texas Style - Having grown up down south, I've grown an appreciation for the "bigger is better" mantra. Bigger and bolder flavor is something I crave in my beers. Some people are hop-heads, all they drink are IPA's and other hoppy beers. Others are big on wheat beers. Some like it dark. Me? I'm an all-the-above kind of guy. I've had a love for all varieties since I was young and that has not changed. Good beer is good beer.

I'm constantly seeking out the latest and greatest new variety, because despite having an old-time favorite beer, drinking the same old flavors over and over gets old. That being said, I've got to try something new, explore my boundaries. After all, variety is the spice of life, no?
