Traditional Belgian wits are filtered, thin and tart. They're brewed with wheat, Curacao orange peel and coriander. The Curacao orange is sour, and it gives Belgian wits their tartness. This recipe was the starting point used for reference. The beer is orange-amber in colour with a cloudy appearance because it is unfiltered. Blue Moon has a more pronounced orange flavour than many other beers of the style, and also has a slightly sweet flavour. The grain bill for Blue Moon includes malted barley, white wheat, and oats. Blue Moon Brewing Company is all about Artfully Crafting beers to make them inviting and easy to enjoy, so they set about reinterpreting the Belgian wit to be smoother and more approachable. Unfiltered: For more depth of flavour, and a unique, cloudy appearance. Brewed with Oats: The oats give it a nice, creamy body, so it's not too thin. Brewed with Valencia Orange Peel: Valencia orange peel gives Blue Moon Belgian White a subtle sweetness, so our beer isn't tart. Overall profile: The flavour starts out crisp and tangy and ends creamy, finishing slowly with a residual coriander and orange spiciness - brought out even further when garnished with a slice of orange.
With its refreshing fruity notes, the drink is a tribute to the restless and rugged spirit of renowned Dutch explorer Willem Barentsz. An attempt to navigate the Northeast passage saw his crew fight twin terrors; polar bears and frozen beer. The White Ale, a beer style typical to the Lowlands, receives an appealing twist by spiking it with curacao orange, elderflower and chamomile giving it a fragrant fruity finish.
Brewed in the centuries - old Belgian tradition, Einstock's White Ale features the complex flavours of the classic witbier (wheat beer), including orange peel and coriander. All brewed with pure Icelandic water that delivers a cool smoothness that is flavourful and refreshingly drinkable.
Hoegaarden is totally different - by nature. It is different from virtually any other beer or beverage experience in the world - different in the kind of beverage that it is, and in the naturally refreshing taste experience. Hoegaarden is the authentic Belgian wheat or white beer. It has a unique and extremely complex brewing process whereby the brand is first top fermented and then is refermented within the bottle - ending up in a unique cloudy-white appearance. The brand's unique appearance is mirrored by its one-of-a-kind taste - sweet and sour beer with a little bitterness, slightly spicy, with a strong touch of coriander and a hint of orange, perfect for warm summer days, instead of other refreshing beverages. Refreshing, a little quirky, and decidedly different - naturally.
Cloudy, smooth and mellow, the Blanche de Namur is a very high-quality wheat beer. From the first sip, you will feel all its roundness and its delicacy that make it an outstanding wheat beer. Blanche of Namur was the daughter of John, Count of Namur. It is told that Magnus IV Eriksson, King of Sweden and Norway, was attracted by the young princess's beauty, when he was travelling to France in search of a prestigious wife. The princess embarked for Scandinavia in August 1335 and was never to see the banks of the Meuse again. She would become Queen of Norway, Sweden and Scania. In memory of her beauty, her sweetness and her delicacy, the Brasserie Du Bocq dedicated a wheat beer to her: The Blanche de Namur.
