Brilliant bright gold color. Herbal, hoppy, fruity aromas and flavors of honeyed grapefruit, spiced peach and pineapple, herb muffin, and pine resin with a supple, vibrant, finely carbonated, dryish medium-to-full body and a tingling, medium-long finish with impressions of toasted nuts and grains, citrus custard, and radicchio finish. Suggestive of a wit beer, more of a fun hoppy pale ale.

Witbier

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.
