A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Herevana – McLeods – White Sand White IPA

New Year Eve, unusually I’m at home, when I’m normally to be found elsewhere abroad. But when you get lemons you get on with it, and so I shall, with a beer form a great brewer in a style that I really enjoy when I see it around This time it’s a   McLeods White Sand White IPA.

McLeod’s Brewery make the White Sand White IPA in 🇳🇿 Waipu, New Zealand as an IPA – Belgian / Saison   style at a 6.6% ABV.

White and Brilliant

A dazzling looking beer this, with bright golden colour and a brilliant stark white head.

It has. lovely bitternes about it, and there’s also this lovely softer envelope around it, and there’s this underlying fruitiness just to round it out. It is quite the thing.

It drinks with a sense that it knows what it is about.

A cross between a Belgian Wit & a classic IPA, White Sand IPA was brewed with Belgian Wit yeast, oats, wheat & Belgian Pilsner malt before hopping with Lemon Drop & Citra. Both fruity & hoppy, the yeast & hops meld well for lifted lemon & a soft palate hinting at bitterness with a light, tart finish. Refreshing & complex, it transcends the mundane

The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 on the arbitrary number scale, which makes it way better than an average beer, and it is. A refreshing delightful change from juiced up hazy IPA with Hop and bitter forward profiles. This is bitter but it’s also pleasing softer and much more enjoyable. Clever stuff.

Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.

Philip himself.
