Winner of Barley’s 14th annual Homebrew Competition in 2009. Lloyd Cicetti’s Wheat Beer with Blood Oranges is a citrusy and supremely refreshing with floral notes thanks to Sicilian blood orange zest added to the brew kettle and puree added during and after fermentation. This hefeweizen has hints of fruity esters and spice from Bavarian wheat yeast.
Food Pairings: Bucket of mussels, Meditteranean Platter, Pierogi and Sausage; just about any dessert; this beer really can wash down anything or quench a thirst all by itself.
