Hazy golden yellow color. Aromas of cracked coriander, allspice, lime vinaigrette, and leather with a supple, crisp, spritzy, dry-yet-fruity light body and a sleek, brisk ripe plantain and orange segments in cream finish. A breezy and spicy witbier for food pairing.

Witbier

Beer Glass Pokal Gold.jpg
Serve in a Pokal
Witbier 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, and Brouwerij de Gouden Boom Blanche de Bruges. Pair with Thai noodles or baked chicken.
