DetailsA very traditional recipe makes this witbier historically accurate. The gratuitous use of flaked wheat gives this beer an incredibly creamy and smooth mouthfeel. The moderate strength of this beer makes it a great beer for sipping on a hot summer afternoon. Late additions of coriander and bitter orange peel round out the slightly tart flavors from the yeast. The use of Saaz hops adds faint spiciness that balances perfectly with spice additions.

5.0 / 5.01 ReviewReally great WitReally great. I've had the chance to brew both the extract and the all grain versions. If your not planning on making changes to the grain bill, my opinion is there's not much difference so maybe save yourself and extra hour of cleaning and mashing.
While not in the instructions, this recipe really comes alive with the addition of 3 orange rinds at secondary fermentation!May 31, 2019Purchased
