Belgian White or Wit beers area a traditional classic of Belgium. This iconic style was once almost completely forgotten until brewer Pierre Celis revitalized the style in the mid-1960s. Traditionally brewed with a moderate ABV and spiced with coriander, we have decided to put a twist on a classic for this special occasion.
Hazy, golden-yellow hue supports a rocky white head. Aroma offers balanced fruitiness and notes of clove with a backbone of pale malts. Body is enhanced by elevated ABV and raw and unmalted wheat, yet the beer remains light on the tongue. Taste is pleasantly sweet and refreshing with spicy yeast character and silky mouthfeel. Finish is crisp and slightly tart with lingering notes of spice.
Brewed for Belgian Independence Day on July 21. Available for a limited time in 1/6 BBL.
