60 Second Craft Beer Review - La Bianca by LABI Beer

In the lead up to my holiday and in the quest to perfect my beach body, I haven't been drinking craft beers as much as I have in the past. However on a recent visit to Eusebi Deli in Glasgows West End, I came home with a bottle of La Bianca by LABI, a craft brewer from Vicenza in Northern Italy. If money was no object I'd have come home with much more than just a solitary bottle of beer - Eusebi Deli has a stunning collection of top quality imported meats, cheeses, wines and beer plus an endless supply of freshly baked cakes and bread.
LABI Brewery is actually the result of a business bet between three friends with a passion for high quality beer but don't think that this is a bit of fun - the team at LABI pay huge attention to the selection of ingredients resulting in a range of beers to suit everyone.
La Bianca by Labi Craft Beer (4.5% ABV)
  • Available at Eusebi Deli for £3.50
  • Pours with a thin compact head that hangs around until the end
  • Pale straw colour, the beer is unpasteurised and unfiltered resulting in a hazy appearance
  • Citrus notes on the nose with hints of clove and coriander, cardamom and orange peel
  • Mild carbonation making it easy to drink
  • Initially slightly acidic, the citrus flavours make La Bianca very easy to drink. A refreshing brew that works great on its own but work well with white meat or fish dishes
The branding of LABI is classy with each style of beer identified by a simple change of colour on the bottle. I started with La Bianca as I thought that this white beer would be a good introduction to the range and after making short work of my 330ml bottle, I can't wait to try the rest starting with La Ambrata (an Italian India Pale Ale) next on my radar.
