香港人跟韓國人、台灣人、泰國人、美國人 (以及太多不能盡錄的不同國家的人) 一樣,由於市場都被主流大啤酒廠壟斷,

市場上選擇極少,自小喝著水準極低的啤酒。

直至,他們喝上了一口非主流啤酒之後,他們才會知道之前,自己都被騙了。原來,啤酒的世界是別有洞天的。

想當年,Hoegaarden剛引入香港市場的光景,大家還記得嗎?

大家像發現了新大陸一樣,瘋狂愛上這啤酒。Hoegaarden在各酒吧裡,銷量都是極高的。

原因,應該是因為那極易入口,帶甜、少苦、帶橙香的味道,與我們廣東人的味蕾太天作之合吧!自小,我們都是喜歡吃原味,味道清雅、不過度調味的菜式的。

很多啤酒迷都應該知道,Hoegaarden 酒廠被大財團收購之後,它的水準就下降很多了! 「降低成本去做酒,寧願用錢賣廣告」這就是大財團典型的做法。

若大家曾經是Hoegaarden的酒迷的話,你現在看到的這款比利時白啤酒,將會是你的新情人。



在一個啤酒迷的網站內,我們可以看到一位叫Malty的啤酒迷這樣寫:

The color is spot-on cloudy murky yellow (similar to homemade lemonade) with a bright white 1 1/2" creamy dense head. Body too cloudy to spot any carbonation. Gorgeous thick rings and droplets of white clinging lace all the way down.

A few swirls of this lovely delicate stemmed glass emits a sour lemon citrus rind scent. Trying to detect something sweet, but I can't - soft, sour & yeasty in bountiful amounts. A couple more swirls proves this gem is going to be very quenching and lively...let's hope.

Just as I hoped...very soft and yeasty with a boatload of refreshing sour notes that don't overpower, but rather refresh and revive the mouth, body and spirit. The coriander is well placed and the orange peel is noticeably polite and unassuming. A nice touch of sweetness that adds dimension to the flavor experience, but doesn't detract from the overall character of this refreshing ale. There's not really any 'funk' in this sour(ish) wit bier as I was curious it might be. The flavors all dance playfully together like a small tight nit group of friends, without any hoopla or fanfare.

Mouthfeel is superb. Like any Belgian Wit worth its salt, it's very soft, fluffy and gentle with a superfine kinetic carbonation level that's just perfect. The medium body (because of the wonderful wheat malt and yeast) holds the fresh flavors together masterfully, but let's them fade away clean, making one eager to gulp once again.

Drinkability is also spectacular. The lovely soft & sour notes work so well together, I can't imagine a time or circumstance where I wouldn't welcome this likeable ale.

Overall a wonderful, gentle and lively Wit that I'm glad to be reunited with (formerly Mannekin Pis). So soft and lovely. So welcoming and playful. Its clean and upbeat flavors can either be stretched and savored, or quaffed and gulped. Whatever your pace or speed, this ale's got something for everybody. I very much feel 'at home' with this beer. OK, now I'm REALLY ready for spring! 

 

Blanche De Bruxelles由40%未麥芽的小麥釀製而成,色澤朦朧,帶有香橙皮和胡荽香味,最適合雪到冰凍來飲,比利時有些飲家,會在啤酒杯內放入一片檸檬,令喝這啤酒時更有清新感覺。

Witbier、White Beer、Bière Blanche都指的是比利時的小麥啤酒,它特點鮮明,使用上發酵技術釀造,釀造過程中加入30%到40%比例的小麥,加入各式各樣的香料、水果和調味品,而且最早的比利時小麥啤酒是不加入啤酒花的,到近百年之內才開始加入少量的啤酒花來中和酸味,所以比利時的白啤酒香濃爽口,苦味極低,又有著白色濃郁的雲霧狀酒體,無論視覺還是味覺都有著很好的表現,很少接觸甚至是從來不愛喝啤酒的人,只要喝到都會愛上它。 

這Blanche De Bruxelles白啤適宜在2-5℃飲用,乳白色的酒液可以在佐餐的時候誘發你的食欲。泡沫豐富細膩,不易消散。白啤的香氣特點明顯,可以清晰的聞到芫荽、陳皮的味道.入口芳香、清新干爽淡淡的啤酒花味在短暫的停留,收尾沒有一點苦澀的感覺,佐餐配海鮮超夾。

 白啤酒(Witbier)是一種小麥啤酒,採上層發酵方式製作。通常低苦味、清爽、且帶有香料氣息 。 由於未過濾,酒內的小麥蛋白和酵母造成略白與朦朧的外觀,而被稱為白啤酒。 白啤酒與其他小麥啤酒最大的不同點,在於白啤酒使用的小麥沒發芽且會添加香料。 白啤酒最常用的香料有橙皮和胡荽子,亦可有其他香料。橙皮可用普通的甜橙皮,或是庫拉索橘(一種苦橙)。



若果你喜歡我們正熱賣的「西班牙佐餐百搭啤白酒(分子料理大師西班牙El Bulli 餐廳總廚Ferran Adria 監製 Inedit啤酒」的話,我們也肯定你會同樣愛上這極易入口,集小麥味味與橙香於一身,性格十分溫柔,滿口水果餘韻的啤酒。
