Traditionally beers brewed in Belgium and The Netherlands. Wit translates in to “white” referring to the suspended yeast and wheat proteins left in suspension throughout the beer. It’s derived from beers that used spices, herbs, and fruit to preserve the beer. This also incorporates a Saison character due to the use of a much dryer Belgian Saison style yeast fermented at a higher than average temperature and a more assertive bitterness. This hybrid Belgian ale is a little more special due to toasting fresh coriander in house to release a richer and rounder aroma mixed in with the bitter orange peel.
This is a cloudy straw coloured beer with a tight white head. The aroma has lovely notes of bright orange zest, clementines, and a spicy peppery note from the yeast and the toasted coriander. The flavours are full of that lemony wheat character, orange, lemon, with a nice bitter spicy backing. This is a very effervescent and dry beer that is very soft on the palate.
