The freshest brew to pour out of the Open Gate Brewery at the St James Gate Brewery, Dublin
Guinness Irish Wheat follows hot on the heels of the experimental breweries last offering, Guinness Milk Stout. With only the famous name in common, Arthur's first ever Wheat Beer punches in at 5.3% and is infused with Bananna, zesty citrus and clove.
The brainchild of brewer Jasmin Winterer whose native home of Germany led her to come up with the concept for Irish Wheat. “The style is familiar, but if you look closer, you’ll see how we made it distinctly Guinness – this beer uses 100% wheat sourced in Ireland and the very same yeast that goes into our world famous stout.”
Having only been released in recent days we hit the jackpot when we came across some bottles in our favourite gas store liquor store, what's better it was on offer.
Pouring Golden Yellow with a slight off white head, this wheat beer Tastes as if it's been brewed in a little Belgian brewery for generations. Zesty, light & refreshing with one of the coolest finishes I have had in a long time.
This is a credit to Guinness, an amazing product for their first wheat beer and a prime example of the expertise and quality of brewer working at the St James Gate Brewery.
