Joseph Spelt Beer

Joseph Spelt Beer

It is possible to brew with grains other than barley and wheat. Technically spelt is in the wheat family of grains. One misconception is that spelt is gluten-free; this is not true. As a member of the wheat family it does contain gluten like proteins and is not recommend for people with celiac disease. There are gluten free beers; Greens are a great example. They use rice, sorghum and buckwheat.

Rate Beer 3.06 48th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +4

The nose is heavy on the yeast, lemons and wheat/spelt aroma. Its taste is just like the aroma; very refreshing and intensely citrus. The photo does not truly represent the fluorescent yellow colour of this beer; it looks almost artificial. If you like heavy carbonated beer, then this one is for you.

Aftertaste +1

The aftertaste is short lived and very reminiscent of lemon pie.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

Value +1

As one of the more unique beers I have tried; this one will be a repeat purchase. Highly recommended for something completely different.

Ingame Enhancement +1

As always there were zombies and there was lead. This combination always leaves a big mess. The best part is that when you turn off your monitor, the clean-up is complete.

Overall 7/10

This was a very refreshing beer. Think of it as Corona on steroids; the perfect summer beer to impress.
