I do love Belgian wheat beers and here is one brewed in Scotland. Hopocrisy gives you that delicious moreish wheat taste that is characteristic of continental beers. The twist is that it is made in Aberdeen by Sixº North who are passionate about Belgian beer and their name comes from the fact that they are located six degrees north of Brussels.
On first taste I loved this beer. It is reminiscent of my favourite German and Belgian wheat beers. There is a slight bitterness that comes after the wheat taste and a hint of citrus flavours. It is 4.6%. Simply delicious and I will be having this again.
The label design is distinctive and eye catching. On the rear there is a story about the founding principals of the brewery.
Sixº North have bars in Scottish cities, including Edinburgh and Glasgow, where you can drink their beers on draft or try something from a Belgian brewery. You should also be able to find the bottles for sale in supermarkets and beer shops.
If you enjoy wheat beers then you should definitely give this a try, particularly if you are travelling in the Aberdeen area.
