A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #936 – Zeelandt – Bishop’s Kick

Zeelandt Bishop’s Kick, my beer for a slow Sunday, so slow I didn’t even get the energy to get a vinyl record out, but that just means I’ll be more excited next time. A beer from Zeelandt, I have had a couple of theirs, this though a limited small run seasonal that took my eye, and in a style I like.

Rouse the yeast

This is a 500ml bottle of a beer that is 4.3% ABV,  13 IBU, 130ish calories a serve size and this will be 1.69 standard drink units in NZ

Brewed by Zeelandt Brewery in the style of  a German Hefeweizen and the are based in Napier, New Zealand

.. drop kick …

Zeelandt’s Bishop’s Kick is a wheat beer made in the traditional Bavarian style: cloudy and bottle conditioned.

Heavy on yeast, heavy on wheat, light on barley, essentially a bread made into  beer.

Rouse the yeast before pouring into a tall glass. Best enjoyed while wearing leather shorts. Prost!

So, What could possibly go wrong?

Lovely yeasty lemony aroma on opening.

Nice looking yellow beer, with substantial white head, cloudy because the yeast has been roused,  Aroma veers towards bubble gum

This is nice easy going beer, nothing outrageous, nothing loud, nothing demanding attention, just a nice refreshing flavoursome beer.

Leave a nice lacing in the glass too.

This is beer that I’m having before dinner, and it is nice enough and pleasant enough that I’d have another, and know that this isn’t going to interfere with the enjoyment of the evening to come.

Pretty much a beer that you could session on, if that’s still a thing. I’d be happy, as mentioned, to have a couple of these and be sure that I’d enjoy both of them the same.

This is consistent beer, nothing chaining in the glass as it gets slightly warmer, which is nice, in this case, because you don’t need that to happen in a beer like this.

The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 of its things from the thing. Thoroughly enjoying this, Bible gum aroma, lemony yeasty taste that is clean but has a fluffy fullness in it, and it is very refreshing to drink.

The double dip review

  • Where did I get it? Liquorland, but it’s in all the usual places.
  • Am I enjoying it? Yes
  • Would I have another? .Yes
  • Would I share with a friend on a porch and set the world to rights? I would this is nice beer to have for chatting to, t chatting about, it’s even handed and drinks well from the start to the end.

Music for this:  ” Chromatics ” with ” Kill For Love”  on Spotify

GERMAN HEFEWEIZEN

Depending on the style can range from pale and light body to dark brown with full body. Wheat beer is characterized by its cloudy appearance and its banana and sometimes vanilla aftertaste.
