Silly Beer


Recommended Posts

Picked this up this morning, not because I wanted it, just to add to my collection of silliness.

Pink Killer is a white Belgian beer flavoured with fruit, produced by the Silly brewery in the Wallonie region.

 

This is White Beer made from barley malt and wheat, Hallertau hops, orange zest, coriander and grapefruit juice. This last ingredient gives the beer its inimitable pink grapefruit colour.

 

Love the brewery's honesty in their choice of name.

 

My only question is "Why? I mean "Why?'" (to be uttered in a tone of despair).

 

It tastes like some one had a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast and then forgot to wash the glass before pouring a beer hours later.

That brewery has been around quite a while...  and given the Belgian propensity to push the rules of brewing in interesting directions, your crack about the name has probably been making the rounds for at least a century.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brasserie_de_Silly

And the orange zest and coriander are very traditional in the Belgian white beer recipe... the only off the wall addition is the grapefruit juice, and that is following the trend of bottled radler coming out of Germany.

      500 years ago, Martin Luther started off the Reformation. In a way, this not only changed religious affairs in Europe, but also changed our beer.
