A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Herevana – Superb Owl Belgian-Style Wit 

Superb Owl Belgian-Style Wit  – this came as part of a monthly subscription that I had with the brewery. I alway look forward to these, but never enjoy the 2 day wait time whilst the beer is in a courier van in the sun. Just a personal thing, I’m pretty sure beer in cans in a box is fine.

I’ve a lot of time for Kereru and their beers.

Kereru Brewing Company make the Kereru Superb Owl in  Upper Hutt, Wellington, 🇳🇿 New Zealand of course as a a Wheat Ale this is the ne upgraded version of 4.8% and a lower 15 IBU things

Aroma on opening is lovely clean malt, pour is beautiful cloudy yellow with a bight white head, looks pretty as a picture in the glass. Aroma in the glass sot with a hint of pepper about it.

Taste is dead on. Sweet with hints of bubblegum and a sprinkle of pepper prickles, a lovely even drink from start to finish, where there then is a faint lingering deeper mustier note that isn’t at all unwelcome.

This is such a pleasing and easy going beer with flavour and depth that develops as it warms slightly in the glass getting bolder and fuller as it gets less in the glass.

The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 on the arbitrary number scale. There’s something delightful about a seemingly simple beer being done well without any frills to hide gaps holes or mistakes. This is really spot on with taste, profile and drinkability.

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.

Superb Owl Belgian-Style Wit is a reboot of an earlier version, but this time we’ve used an incredible Belgian-style yeast and have added orange zest and coriander seed to the beer for a traditional, easy drinking and delicious summer beer.

Brewers Notes

Wheat Ale

The Wheat Ale, also seen as American Wheat Ale, is a refreshing wheat beer that can display more hop character and less yeast character than their German cousins. A clean fermentation character allows bready, doughy, or grainy wheat flavors to be complemented by hop flavor and bitterness rather than yeast qualities. It is usually pale yellow to gold but dark / toastier versions also exist. More hop character and less yeast character than German weissbier. Never with the banana and clove character of German weissbier. Generally can have the same range and balance as Blonde Ales, but with a wheat character as the primary malt flavor.
