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.

I keep this around at all times. Quite easily the best model of a Witbier. Expect to smile after your fist taste. You will notice the soft citrus flavor with a crisp refreshingess that's unique. Highly reccomend any witbier fans to try this.

One of my favorite witbiers. Pours a straw gold with a thin head. The smell was full of really strong grain scents with some sweet fruits like bananas. A little bit of pepper on the end of the nose. The taste was fantastic with those great wheat flavors mixing with light spice and sweetness. A lot of wonderful layers of flavor to this one. Would definitely recommend.
