COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A perennial favorite here at Tröegs amongst co-workers and fans alike, our Belgian-style Witbier (or white ale) features a blend of wheat, oats, and malted barley along with spices, Belgian yeast and other juju to create a complex yet refreshing flavor. With a dense haze and foamy white head, our Witbier incorporates subtle tartness and a delicate orange aroma to complement the aromatic spices and distinctive LaChouffe yeast. An excellent summertime quaffing delight, Scratch #149 finishes dry and crisp.
