These Belgian-style beers are light in body with a pale yellow or almost white in color.  Belgian Wit beers are generally cloudy from the unfiltered wheat. Crisp, sometimes sweet flavors and spices such as coriander, orange peel, banana, and lemon zest are commonly found in this style of beer. Generally, hops have very little to do with these beers. Each of these beers are perfect for hot summer days, mowing the yard, or simply sitting and relaxing.  Enjoy these beers with fish or any light meal.
