Brilliant golden yellow color. Floral, attractive aromas and flavors of acacia honey, floral spices, vanilla bean ice cream, and white chocolate graham cracker with a satiny, soft, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a sleek, elegant, medium-long sweet lettuces, butter roasted nuts, and kiwi and celery finish. A pleasantly floral and honeyed summer sipper.

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.
