All about witbier

Discover witbier

During hot summer months, you need a beer that quenches thirst and provides refreshment, and witbier meets that requirement. It's not a new beverage, but its popularity is on the rise nowadays after a bit of a downfall. If you're looking for a refreshing white beer to help you cool down, this is it.

Where is it from?

Witbier is Belgian, with "wit" meaning "white." Thus, it is Belgian white beer. There are also other varieties, such as the German white beer called hefeweizen. Witbier has a long history, with the first documentation of it in 14th century Belgium. Wheat is the main ingredient, which is why it's a white beer. Oats and barley are also sometimes part of the mix. While it has been around for hundreds of years, it went on the back burner in favor of other beers until a revival in the 1960s. Thank goodness for Pierre Celis taking a renewed interest in this wheat ale beer, or you might not have it today.

A moderate-tasting beer

Not too bitter and not too spicy. It's just right. Coriander and orange peel are the main spices used in creating this Belgian-style beer. The pale color is always cloudy, a sign of a good witbier. It has a low malt flavor and low bitterness, which allows you to savor the subtle flavors.

Best way to serve it

Because this beer is good for warm weather, you want it chilled. The ideal serving temperature is between 40 and 45 degrees Fahrenheit. Pour it into a tulip-shaped glass and watch the bubbles rise to the top.

What to eat with witbier?

Fries and beer go together like peanut butter and jelly. Sip a glass of witbier alongside a pile of fries or with sweet panna cotta. Pour a glass and cool down on a hot summer day while you gather with friends and family. Shop Drizly or see if we've made it to your city.
