Dentergems Wit (2011-)


Brewed by Brouwerij Het Anker
Mechelen, Belgium
Style: Belgian White (Witbier) | Ratings: 33 | Alcohol: 5%
Cool. Refreshing. Distinctive. “White” beers from Belgium are still growing in popularity. Belgian brewers are renowned for their innovative brewing methods, and “white” beer is a perfect example as it combines the use of wheat with light spices such as coriander and orange peel. The beer’s distinctive hazy color comes from suspended yeast and wheat proteins. The light and almost spicy aroma makes it popular with people looking for a tasty, thirst-quenching beer.

Since the 70s, Dentergems grew to become the second most popular white beer in Belgium. Named after a small village in northwest Belgium, the beer’s popularity grew until the bankruptcy of the original brewer in 2007. In spring 2011, Het Anker launched the iconic Dentergems White Beer again for the American market, using its own specific yeast for an even more refreshing flavor. So an old favorite is now available again.

Hops: Golding
Wort extract: 11,5 ° Plato

Editor’s Note: Revived brand formerly brewed by Riva Brouwerij (Moortgat)
