With a recipe that dates back to the 14th Century, this is one of our most traditional craft beers. This beer is an unfiltered Witbier, called a “White Beer” by Flemish-speaking Belgians due to its opaquely white appearance. At 4.9% ABV, it is a refreshing, easy-drinking beer to be enjoyed throughout the year. Its grain bill includes nearly 50% unmalted wheat and oats, and it is lightly spiced with coriander and orange peel. The yeast in this recipe was cultured from the original strain near the town of Hoegaarden in Belgium, and it adds a pleasant fruitiness during fermentation.
Pairs Well With: Moules and frites, mascarpone, panna cotta, mozzarella, nutty gruyere cheese, potatoes.
