Witbier Extract Beer Recipe Kit
Belgian-style wheat beer with complex yeast character and aromatic spices. An appealingly crisp, dry, and refreshing alternative to generic warm-weather lawnmower beer.
Literally, "white beer," this Belgian wheat beer got its name because of its cloudy haze (it's actually straw-gold in color). The smooth mouthfeel, grainy flavor, and massive head retention of wheat malt meets dry and phenolic Belgian witbier yeast. Adding the tart, enticing character of coriander and bitter orange peel makes this beer very complex and delicate.

We brewed & bottled this beer as a Christmas gift, and it was a huge hit! It turned out exactly as we'd hoped... Tastes like summer :-)
The coriander and orange peel finish it off perfectly. Excellent tasting beer.
Great tasting beer. Just the right amount of coriander and orange peel.
Excellent light summer beer. Great tasting and at 4% you can't ask for more on a hot summer day.
Just finished the kit and tried the finished product and I would say it is really outstanding. I followed the recipe to the letter, with only a couple of exceptions. I left much of the orange peel and coriander intact to ferment in the primary. Also, my wife likes witbiers with a bit of finishing sweetness, so I used Safale K-97 and a little nutrasweet before bottling. There is a hint of sweetness that lingers on the palate when tasting.
