Spider Bite Beer Company, a Holbrook-based brewery operated by Larry Goldstein and Anthony LiCausi, releases White Bite Wheat Ale on April 05.
Described by Goldstein as a “refreshing summer beer,” White Bite Wheat Ale is brewed with wheat malt (50% of the grain bill). The 4.50% ABV beer will start draft-only and bottle-follow in “about two weeks.”
Description of White Bite Wheat Ale:
I say summer, you say heat. I say white, you say wheat. I also say citrus aroma, refreshing and light. White Bite, enough said.
Spider Bite Beer Company will also pour two versions of White Bite Wheat Ale at Blue Point Brewing Company‘s Cask Ales Festival on April 13: White Bite Wheat Ale with oranges, and Black Bite Wheat Ale, a variant brewed with Briess Midnight Wheat Malt and cask-stuffed with blackberries.
“Midnight Wheat Malt is very roasted and one of the darkest malts available,” says Goldstein. “It’s the same recipe, but some of the grain bill is changed.”
