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.

Poured from bottle into glass. Pours a very light see through golden wheat color; not impressive, but great carbonation, and head. Smells of banana, clove, and belgian yeast. Nice banana and clove flavor with a hint of citrus. Really flavorfull, great mouthfeel and great flavors, just a bit weak. Nice refreshing summer wit.

A - One finger white head with moderate retention. The beer is a hazy yellow/straw color.

S - Wheat malt dominates the smell with some tart fruitiness.

T - Sweet citrus flavors from the orange peel and a light spiciness from the coriander and yeast cover up the lighter wheat flavors. An almost lemony citrus flavor is dominant.

M - Lighter bodied with an almost prickly bite from the carbonation.

O - Refreshing beer, but not spectacular. Almost too tart for my taste. This would be much better on a hot day.
