Kirkland Signature Belgian White

kirkland_signature_belgian_white

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.
