God bless California’s The Bruery and the other people who take the time to do things right. Where others would kettle sour* and create a tart wit, the Bruery goes old school! First, they set about making a witbier with coriander and orange peel (like you do) but then they ferment the wort with a combination of yeasts including our souring friend, Brettanomyces. Then it’s off to aging in French and US oak in their “Foeder Forest.” The result is a beer of beguiling complexity where the spicy / fruity wit notes swirl around with oak-softened sourness.
(*Full disclosure — there’s nothing “wrong” with kettle souring. It’s a fine thing.)
