The Witbier is a Belgian style of beer that dates back 400 years. It’s a lighter style, generally around 5% ABV, with a lot of body due to the umalted wheat. Witbiers are often spiced with coriander and orange peel. The style nearly died out in the 1950’s, but was brought back to life when Pierre Celis, the brewmaster at Hoegaarden, started brewing it again.
