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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast citrus notes of some orange peel, spicy notes and some light banana. Taste is wheat, citrusy orange peel, banana and yeast with a bit of sweet tartness. Palate is a light body, crisp mouth feel and good carbonation. Finishes with a sweet citrusy flavor, some yeast, wheat notes with some light banana end has a bit tartness. Overall a good refreshing session ale.
