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.

3.58/5  rDev -4.8%

Appearance - Pours a clear pale straw with two fingers of bubbly white head.

Smell - Orange peel, coriander, Belgian yeast, clove, wheat, fruity esters, bready malts.

Taste - Very similar to what the aromas suggest. All the flavours are fairly in balance and there's a tiny amount of tartness.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate-to-high carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall - An easy-to-drink wit with all the traditional flavours in place. Hits the mark on the style, but doesn't really do anything to set itself apart.
