Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

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.

Very pale, hazy, nice white head; not much aroma; Quite carbonated; flavor is rather bland; not a beer I would ask for again

Slightly hazy pale yellow, thin bubbly head. Sweet nose, fruit forward. Quite flavorful! Fruity and slightly herbaceous, with a slight hint of darker savory malts.
