After nearly being lost in time altogether, Witbier has had a resurgence. This classic and distinctive strain will produce a beer exemplary to the style. Produces a complex flavor profile dominated by spicy phenolics with low to moderate ester production.
It is a great strain choice when you want a delicate clove profile not to be overshadowed by esters. It will ferment fairly dry with a slightly tart finish that compliments the use of oats, malted and unmalted wheat. This strain is a true top cropping yeast requiring full fermenter headspace of 33%.
