Opaque light gold color. Toasty, fruity, spicy aromas and flavors of fresh herb baguette, dried fruits, and delicate spice with a velvety, vibrant, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a graceful, subtle, medium-long finish manifesting nuances of honeyed toast, sweet lettuces, peach soufflé, and earth finish. A delightfully smooth, balanced and flavorful wit beer that is a pleasure to drink,

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.
