Minutely hazy golden amber color. Toasty aromas and flavors of dried fruits, suede, shmaltz and pepper cracker, and coriander and cilantro with a supple, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-long melon-apple relish on wafers, chamomile, and spiced nougat finish. An elegant and refreshing wheat ale with great fruit and grain flavors.

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.
