Whiteout Wheat, our riff on a Belgian Wit, is dry, light and extremely refreshing. It's brewed with coriander and orange peel and then paired with smooth Belgian malts and yeast to produce a beer that's both supple and complex.
The pale and wheat make up equal parts of the grain bill. The flaked wheat and flaked oats provide extra protein which results in a much more stable haze in the beer. The biscuit malt provides breadiness and some body.
We add some lactic acid to the mash to give it a little bit of tartness as well. The late addition of orange peel gives it a refreshing citrus nose, as does the crushed corainder seeds. Chamomile balances out the spiciness with herbal tones.
Perfect with fish and chips, salmon, and green salads. Smashing with citrus cakes, chocolate mousse or baklava. Its lively, effervescent character has outstanding drinkability and is the perfect beer on a hot summer's day.
