OpenCraftBeer.com has reached a milestone of over 100 posts! For this occasion, I picked up a mixed case of Costco’s house-branded Kirkland Signature beer brewed for them by the New York Brewing Co. (Ok, so I didn’t really choose it to mark the milestone, but it just happened to be what I had on hand when I sat down to write.) There have been a couple of changes since the last mixed case that I bought. The Geman Lager that I reviewed earlier is no longer offered, and one of the new beers is the Belgian White Ale that I’m reviewing today. The bottle says that it uses a combination of oats, wheat, and barley malt and is flavored with coriander and orange peel. There’s not much of a nose at all, and the flavor is that of a wheat beer with a *lot* of orange peel. There’s not a lot of the fruit that I’d expect from Belgian yeast…Just a hint in the finish. It’s more of just an ok wheat beer.
I give it a 2.8 out of 5.
