Bloody Alice Wheat Beer
Source: M Kiessling
Recipe added: 03/17/99
Makes a lovely deep scarlet beer, with a pronounced fruit
flavour and a delicate honey backnote. Very cloudy, LOTS of sediment. Drinkable 2 weeks after bottling, superb after 4 weeks. A friend said "2 pints of this and you're in wonderland" hence the name Bloody Alice. Good summer beer,
best served cold!
