Notes/Commercial Description:
Witte is our version of the classic Belgian wit or "white" ale. Witte, which is actually Flemish for white, is brewed with malted and unmalted wheat, orange peel, and coriander - offering a refreshing style that showcases the Belgian talent for brewing full-flavored ales that are also light and balanced. It is pale straw in color, slightly hazy from the yeast, and topped with a huge white, fluffy head.

Witte is pleasantly light on the tongue, balanced between malt and wheat sweetness. Hops and spice with a subtle clove note backed by flavors of lemon and sweet orange give way to a dry, crisp, refreshing finish.

Bottle. One of my favorites. Smooth with hints of lemon and coriander. Great beer.

Billowing white head on a murky straw body. Lemon and wheat leap from the glass. Notes of floral, spicy, and lightly fruity Belgian esters add complexity. Flavor is fairly earthy, with notes of menthol carrying into a wheat backbone and floral, herbal tones. There's a touch of plastic phenol that becomes lightly bubblegum-like. The finish is dry. Not my favorite example of the style because of the plastic note and lemon focus.
