Colomba is a white beer of 5° alcohol strength, brewed from barley and wheat and flavoured with herbs from the Corsican maquis. Unfiltered and bottom-fermented, it is naturally clouded because of the presence of yeast, but its taste and scent come from the heart of the maquis. A delicate blend of tree strawberry, myrtle, and juniper is prepared in a large tea-ball and left to infuse in the kettle while cooking the wort.
This exclusive recipe has received accolades from the specialists: voted best white beer in England for 2003 by the magazine GastroPub, or described as “a headily scented white beer. A very refreshing beer, built on a perfect balance between freshness, bitterness and sweetness.” by Dominique Laporte - best sommelier of France for 2004.
