Curim (or coirm) was originally brewed by the early Celtic inhabitants of the Barrow Valley in south east Ireland. Over the centuries this ancient brewing tradition was all but forgotten until its revival by Carlow Brewing Company. Bright and sparkling Curim Gold celtic wheat beer is brewed using a blend of pale malt torrefied wheat and caramalt. It is lightly hopped using Challenger, Mount Hood and Cascade varieties resulting in a refreshing light fruity beer with hints of peach, banana and plum. The perfect compliment to spicy food.

    Pours almost completely clear golden color topped with a relatively small white head. Very mild aroma, some fruity notes, some wheaty notes. Later on some caramel notes. Taste is sweet and fruity at first, some wheat and caramel notes. Very moderate bitterness in the finish. Nice.

    Now here is a strange one, big moderately long lasting head, hazy brownish green hew, light aroma, and almost missing flavor, pleasant but almost homeopathic flavor!

    Can do without this one. Balance is not the greatest. More like a honey, fruity, semi-wheaty beer. On the sweeter side. Aroma is under-par...has that wet-dog smell. Mouthfeel is ok, flavor is ok, but pretty much an average brew. The best thing I liked about this was the fresh hop finish which attempted to balance it out. Would much rather have a Hef or some other kind of wheat in the future.

    Bottle. Poured a clear medium amber colored ale with a two fingers white creamy foamy head that had a long retention. Mid-sized carbonation. Good lacing. The aroma is wheat malts, herbal hops and some fruits. The flavour is slight caramel malts, honey, fruity, apples, citrus, spicy, peppery. The mouthfeel is crispy. This light to medium bodied ale has a nice spicy and bitter finish. A nice brew.

    Pours a clear gold with a thinnish bubbly head leaving a bit of lacing. Great carbonation. Aromas of sweet malts and wet wheat, crisp apples and slight peach. Taste is fairly crisp with a sweet fruitiness and a sweet malt base that finishes dry. Would be a great summer beer-Better than I thought it would be.

    Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized fluffy white head. Aroma is vegetables, grass and slightly white bready notes. Flavour is fruits, earth and some wheat. Watery and not that exciting.

    Thanks B...
    Reviewed in 500ml Stella Artois glass.
    Poured out a light, dirty gold brew with some stuff floating around and a decent sized crown with some retention and quite a bit of splotchy lacing. A good swirl to rustle up the aroma gives lots of fresh foam. The aroma is mainly wheat, obvious German hops and lemon...and that is all good but its the lingering armpit sweat that carries some unpleasant weight especially early in the beer. After it sits awhile it does disappear and then this brew is pretty decent on the smell side. A bit watery on the flavour front but its still nice and wheaty with slight malt notes and an equally slight spice in the hops. The hops are more obvious near the bottom of my glass. The mouthfeel is very weak, foamy and uninspiring early on but just like all the other characteristics of this beer improve with time in the glass. Too bad its still a bit too foamy. Comes across a bit sour / tart with a weak lingering of the bitterness located near the tonsils. BOOOOORING.

    I had higher expectations based on a friends recommendation and I was mildly disappointed. Nothing stands out with this beer, but it doesn't taste bad on a hot summer day.
