Cerveza San Vicente

Cerveza San Vicente White Ale (Belgian Wit)


5 out of 5

Of all the Belgian-inspired Mexican craft brews I have tried, Cerveza San Vicente from Guadalajara is the cream of the crop. The brewers call it a Belgian Wit, but with the cilantro and orange added to the beer, the beer better resembles a Saison Ale. Not quite as good as Saison Dupont, but much better than some of the saisons I've had by the better American craft brewers such as Great Divide and Dogfish Head.

As you can see in the picture, this beer pours with an enormous amount of head. It has a wonderful spicy aroma, with noticeable, but not overpowering, wheat, orange, and coriander flavors. This beer is also extremely easy to drink and quite refreshing.

I have only seen this beer available at La Belga. This 750ml bottle cost 125 pesos and was well worth it. It seems that the makers of this beer only produce a small amount at a time, so if you want to try it, get over to La Belga asap.
