Superlative
Hazy golden straw color. Startling aromas of salami sandwich with a supple, dryish medium-to-full body and a savory, complex finish with layers of salty baguette, spice, herb, grassy. Amazing and unique. An incredible food beer.

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.
