The Bruery: Orchard White – Ep. 64

This week’s episode brings you one of the most unique beers we’ve tasted in a long time. Orchard White from The Bruery is an incredibly aromatic Belgian Style witbier that’s brewed with coriander, citrus peel and lavender that take hold of the senses and never let go. A truly remarkable drinking experience that must be tried by any true American Craft beer lover.

  • Ryan Said,

    This sounds like an awesome beer. Can you actually get this beer here in Georgia? Cause if not I will have to pick some up while I’m in Florida or New Orleans next month.

    One beer you guys should try to get and taste is Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale. This is an amazing ale from one of the best breweries in the country.

  • David Little Said,

    Unfortunately Ryan The Bruery isn’t in Georgia (or the South) yet. Hopefully soon. They are mostly out west with a couple northeast states (

    I sent Patrick a link to the video and he sent this in his reply concerning the “twang” …

    “[T]here shouldn’t be any lacto / pedio in Orchard White (we plate every batch in the tank and one bottle per hour from our bottling line). The pH is around 4, but the final gravity is extremely low– between -.5P and .5P (.997 – 1.002). Our yeast and how we brew the beer contribute to the exceptionally low final gravity. The wheat tang, the orange peel and the carbonic bite (which could lower pH as well– we test pH in flat beer) give it a bit of tartness.”

    You definitely should seek out this beer (and others from The Bruery). They are all amazing. I actually shared a bottle of Black Orchard and Saison de Lente the other day with some of my friends up here in Atlanta and have created even more converts! (Sorry John and Paul you weren’t here for those but I’ll get us some more)

    I’m also with you on Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale. I’m sure you know it started life as the Stone 11th Anniversary. If you’re going to be near Savannah the night of 15 July, The Distillery is having a Hoppy Anniversary Party with kegs of Stone 11th , 12th and 13th Anniversary! Unfortunately I’ll be out of town so have one of each for me.

  • Video BrewMaster Said,

    This from Benjamin at the Bruery – I thought I would share on the site here:

    Hey Guys,

    Just watched your episode on our Orchard White! So glad you enjoyed it and felt like sharing with your audience. It amazes me every day how quickly the Bruery love is spreading across the country. We have big goals for our second year of production when it comes to expanding our distribution, so hopefully we’ll be more readily available in Georgia in the near future. And just FYI, we’ve actually got a couple new beers coming out in bottles in the second half of 2009…so be on the look out!

    To Life!

    The Bruery does some really great sour beers. I tried them all at their 1st anniversary party. If you see it, buy it.

  • Edmond Medina Said,

    I heard about these beers also on The Brewing Network and immediately ordered some from a few shops out in California. I managed to get this one, Black Orchard, Batch One, Maple Autumn and Trade Winds. All of the beers are just great. Now the better news…they are starting to be distributed here in Central VA. Patrick is doing a tasting this Sat at one of our local shops, I am going to try to make it and pay the man his due.
    If you are passing through Richmond, VA on I-95 look up Once Upon a Vine, Corks and Kegs or Wine and Beer Westpark to see if they have some in stock.

  • Grant Levy Said,

    I finally got around to tasting this one last week here in Orlando, FL. It was amazing! The lavender is so floral I couldn’t keep my nose out of the glass. I’ll definitely have more of this soon.

    Tonight I also tried The Bruery’s Rugbrod which is their dark rye ale. I noticed caramel and chocolate notes in it but not the rye. Still, excellent stuff from such a young brewery.

    I greatly enjoy your beer reviews. Keep ’em coming.
