Tröegs Scratch 47


Formerly brewed at Tröegs Brewing Company
Hershey, Pennsylvania USA
Style: Belgian White (Witbier) | Ratings: 18 | Series Seasonal | Alcohol: 4.2%
Our second foray into the white ale world comes with a little less and a little more from our first endeavor. We’ve reduced the gravity a bit to lower the ABV but dramatically increased the pepper and coriander, as well as adding locally-grown, organic unmalted winter wheat. The coriander, sweet and bitter orange peel, black pepper and star anise were added to the hopback to intensify these diverse flavors. With a dense haze from the unmalted wheat and a foamy white head, Scratch #47 incorporates citrus and spicy aroma notes with a hint of licorice from the star anise. The spices are offset by a doughy taste and the Lachouffe yeast gives a cidery finish. Enjoy!
