NOW On TAP : Wit von Boorian

The next seasonal beer on rotation is our Wit von Boorian
Brother Brian's Delight)...our first collaboration w/ Trappist monks!

We brewed this light, flavorful, and cloudy wheat beer with some very special ingredients: chamomile flowers, coriander seeds, and orange marmalade from St. Joseph's Abbey, a monastery in Spencer, MA. Brother Brian was kind enough to expedite a shipment to us and we are most pleased with the results. The first keg was tapped in Burien this afternoon. Swing by for a pint of this blessed springtime exilir.

Cooks Illustrated selected the Trappist Orange Marmalade as its favorite, saying: "Trappist Seville Orange Marmalade earned strong points for its natural orange flavor and was also the favorite of our testers who liked a solid level of sweetness as well as a moderate amount of tartness." These same qualities also came through in the finished beer along with an enticing chamomile aroma.
