Belgo-Wiezen and India Wit Kegging Day
I have to say that the beers were remarkably similar, considering the ingredients and yeasts used. Belgo-Wiezen has a sweet malt note in the nose, a nice, grainy flavor, with a lingering hop bite, probably because I undershot my numbers.
The original gravity on Belgo-Wiezen was 1.051, and it finished at 1.006, giving me about 6% alcohol. I don't think my critic will be too happy with this beer. It still has a bit of citrus and spice in it, even though I didn't use anything but grain, water, hops and yeast.
I do like the citrusy hop finish. It reminds me of beers from Freetail Brewing.
I find myself wondering if either of these will last until the National Homebrew Contest in March. I may just bottle six of each, just in case.
