The perfect pint after a hard day's work, Gaarden Hoe is an ode to the historic and refreshing Belgian wit. Flaked wheat is expertly tilled into a traditional pilsner malt bill and modest, grounded hop profile. Coriander and bitter orange peel offer slightly tart and citrusy undertones to quench even the most parched palate.
A 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.
If you enjoyed Belgian Witbier, you'll love this kit!

I was surprised there was no wheat flakes in the kit but low and behold it was just about the best wheat beer I've ever brewed. I've been brewing for over 8 years now and tried many different recipes and although this was simple (ingredient wise) it tasted just like a witbeer should. Ill gladly order and brew it again.
Really like this beer. Love HoeGaarden as it is, this is a very good clone.
