Bright yellow straw color. Spicy, savory aromas and flavors of Moroccan orange spice cake, banana bread, and polenta with a satiny, bright, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a compelling, medium-long wafer cookie, kiwi marmalade, romaine and apple salad, and zucchini finish. A nicely polished and table-friendly witbier with a subtle range of flavors.

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.
