North Island Coriander White by North Island Beer

North Island Coriander White is a 5% Belgian wit from North Island Beer, based in Ebetsu, in Hokkaido, Japan. It’s part of their spring lineup and can be found in both bottles and on tap sale. As the name suggests, North Island Coriander White is the sister beer to the North Island Coriander Black; however, unlike most Belgian Witbiers, North Island Coriander White eschews the orange peel that is often found in them, and instead focuses on the coriander aspect of the style.

North Island Coriander White : Aroma & Taste

North Island Coriander White poured out a hazy golden straw colour with a large amount of fluffy white head on top that clung to the side of the glass during drinking. The coriander was clearly the star of this beer as its spiciness came through, bringing it a light wheat aroma as the beer slowly warmed up. North Island Coriander White had an interesting citrus note too, with a subtle lemon aroma in the background.

The coriander was once again the star in the body with it bringing a faint spicy note to the beer – not of a level that would destroy taste buds but there was a warming sensation to the body. North Island Coriander White also continued with the lemon and wheat theme though it wasn’t as bold as expected, the lemon and coriander flavours did play off against each other nicely.

North Island Coriander White : The Bottom Line

North Island Coriander White is a nice twist on a common style of beer that has seen better days.
