Hazy golden yellow color. Mild aromas of chamomile and orange teas and apple turnovers. Soft and silky with a fruity-yet-dry medium body and a banana cream pie and delicate peppercorn bread accented finish. An alluring blend of dry, fruit, and spice notes in a well measured frame. Very sessionable.

White, or wit, beers are pale straw to deep golden in color and range in alcohol from 4.5-5%. These unfiltered beers are a style of flavored wheat beer, and derive much of their flavoring from bitter curaçao orange peel, coriander and other spices. This style is distinctly Belgian in origin and has seen resurgence in recent decades. It is now widely produced in the US as a summer seasonal. Noteworthy example of this style include: Hoegaarden White Beer, Unibroue Blanche de Chambly, Brouwerij de Gouden Boom Blanche de Bruges and Avery White Rascal.
