Two Rabbits Kinkan Wit Aroma and Taste
Two Rabbits Kinkan Wit poured out a slightly hazy golden colour with a thin amount of white head on top that faded fast to a few bubbles around the side of the glass. The aroma was one of oranges – guessing that was the kumquats – along with a slightly prickly aroma of coriander and some slight yeast funk going on. Nothing unpleasant by any means but definitely a cacophony of aromas going on that were well balanced.
The flavours in the body were as mixed as the aroma – but in a good way. The orange flavours from the kumquat segued into a light coriander and yeasty flavour and back again, playing off each other nicely. The body to Two Rabbits Kinkan Wit was crisp and dry that was great on a hot summer’s day. The kumquat flavours lingered into the aftertaste, with a subtle spiciness just appearing briefly.
Two Rabbits Kinkan Wit The Bottom Line
Two Rabbits Kinkan Wit is a damn nice and refreshing beer.
