Style: Witbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.20%

Availability: Year-round

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.

This is an awesome beer. I am not a wheat or white beer fan. I really love the balance and not over whem sense that I am drinking a wheat. This is a beer that many need to try and I know will love. This brewery puts out some great beers so please pay attention to what they do.

Overall, I enjoyed this beer as a great summer beer, whether it is at room temp, or if it is within a refrigerator. This brew had a nice yeast taste that coats the tongue nicely with a sweet aroma.
